Salamanca is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain’s Castile and Leon region. The most notable feature of the city is the Villamayor stone many of Salamanca’s buildings and monuments are built with. The stone gives the city a golden hue when the sun is low that sets it apart from other places. UNESCO has also designated the historic centre with World Heritage Site status. Highlights of the city include the magnificent Plaza Mayor, university and two cathedrals. Casa Lis, the Art Nouveau and Art Deco museum, is another highlight. The modernist building and its magnificent stained glass windows are as much of an attraction as the museum’s collection.
