Salamanca Spain by Night

As promised yesterday, I want to share some pictures of Salamanca Spain by night. There is something even more amazing about the old architecture when they light it up at night. We basically, spent the evening hours wandering around the same places we had been during the day but seeing it completely differently.

The Roman Bridge at Night: I love this view across the old roman bridge and to the cathedral. I had thought it lovely during the day but simply beautiful by night. Imagine, this was the view from our hotel. Totally fantastic!

The Cathedral at Night: It’s hard to imagine how big this cathedral was as this is only part of it but when I had been touring around it during the day it made me think of the book “Pillars of the Earth“. The fact that these HUGE and amazing buildings were built in a time when they didn’t have the conveniences that we have now and that so much was put into making them beautiful was sometimes overwhelming.

Plaza Mayor by Night: You can see how spectacular the Plaza Mayor looked all lit up for the night. It was stunning! I loved how the lighting high-lighted the architecture and the fact that you could enjoy it as much in the evening as you could during the day.

We loved Salamanca and when we get back to Spain, we will definitely spend more than 24 hours there. If you are planning a trip to Spain, you should really get to Salamanca. We never did make it to the Art Deco Museum!

Hope you enjoyed Salamanca Spain by night as much as we did!
