GastronomY AND CulturE

This fall, enjoy the many possibilities offered by the cradle of Plateresque, Salamanca. We propose you a weekend getaway of disconnection with cultural tourism and gastronomic specials.

To begin to delve into this city of heritage, history and mystery, we suggest you stay in a former convent of the Dominicans, where the decoration is composed of views of the Cathedrals or the Cloister of the Convent of San Esteban, and the melody, the bells from the numerous churches and convents located in the center, this place is Hospes Palacio de San Esteban, a 51-room Boutique Hotel that offers all the services and amenities in the city center.

From here and taking a pleasant walk you can discover monumental spaces articulated by religious, university and civil buildings of medieval and modern times that emerge majestically from the inherited urban fabric. The chromatic uniformity of this set, due to the use of the characteristic golden sandstone of golden reflections in its construction, has become one of its singularities. Without realizing it you will arrive at the Cathedrals, the University or the House of Las Conchas, without a doubt three sets of obligatory visit. Continuing in this direction, you will enter the Plaza Mayor, the center of Salamanca’s social life, of enormous appeal for its terraces for a good wine or a refreshing beer accompanied by the typical dishes or tapas of the rich Castilian cuisine.

Its cattle ranch, its pork butcher’s shop (sausages and hams) and the abundance of fields cultivated with different cereals already give a clear idea of the cuisine and its preparations makes the gastronomic tradition of this city especially rich. Its cuisine acts as a bridge between the cooking of Extremadura (especially in Upper Extremadura), Leonese cuisine and Castilian cuisine, and the province of Salamanca has two characteristic viticultural areas: Tierra del Vino and Arribes del Duero, wines that undoubtedly you have to prove.

To continue, our proposal is to take a horseback ride to discover this beautiful land or enjoy a river cruise through the Douro, both proposals will make you discover a different face of Salamanca.

From the water is a perspective that few know and yet allows you to observe its fields and landscapes of extreme beauty, navigate the tranquil waters of the Douro, watching the majestic flight of winged jewels like the black stork and the golden eagle in their natural habitat, It is a unique experience with which to discover the Natural Park ARRIBES DEL DUERO Salamanca. The great biological wealth makes the different seasonal changes offer a varied landscape throughout the year, which leads us to enjoy any time of the year.

To end the day we suggest you discover the cuisine of El Monje Restaurant, here you can enjoy the most traditional ingredients of the cuisine of Salamanca, carefully selected by its chef and prepared following the same recipes as always, but with an avant-garde presentation, so original , that everything will seem doubly succulent. In addition, our complete wine list, the quality of service, or the magical atmosphere of the vaulted room, will turn your evening into an exclusive experience that will amply fulfill your expectations. We suggest you taste the Traditional Menu for 39 € with drinks included.
