  • It is a convent that has a church located in a privileged, imposing and beautiful place. If you can visit the convent (rather monastery) on weekdays paying 3 euros and on weekends it is free, it is really worth visiting to see part of its magnificent interior, its museum and even climb the terrace that has the best views of Salamanca .

  • We passed by chance and were delighted by the grandeur of the templi, its columns, the high altar and its box Do not stop visiting it

  • Beautiful place to spend an hour looking at the church. Great architecture and details. Price for adults are €4 and students under 25 are €3. You can either go with a tour guide at a certain scheduled time or on our own.
  • Superb experience! Just to walk around and see the gorgeous patios, the church and the 1st floor views is just amazing! You can also ask for a guided tour, but we prefered to go solo and it was already spectacular! Check it out if you are in Salamanca!
