Description

This Online Experience will start from the Town Hall, located in one of the most beautiful squares of Europe: the Plaza Mayor. After spending some time here and learning about the square's history, we will pay a visit to the Palace of Monterrey, a fine example of the Plateresque style architecture, and then make our way to the nearby Church La Purisima.

I will also take you through through the street La Compania at one end of which sits the private university La Pont Ficia or the Pontifical University of Salamanca; the baroque-style Clerecia church; and the Shell House, which is a Spanish landmark. In the university zone, we will admire the extraordinary facade of the main historical building called the Escuelas Mayores, and walk in and around the two patios, Patio de Escuela Menores and Patio de Escuela Mayors.

Next, we will head to the Old Cathedral and admire its beautiful facade. We will also make our way to the Anaya Square which is home to the New Cathedral, where we will conclude this tour.
