The golden card in the golden city.
Thanks to unique local sandstone used in so many Salamanca buildings, they have a centuries-old golden patina that has earned Salamanca the nickname of La Ciudad Dorada, the golden city. So it should come at no surprise that at Rail Europe, we’ve come up with a golden opportunity for your visit. The Salamanca card.
This 24 or 48-hour smart card gives you free entries at museums and attractions all over town, not to mention equally welcoming discounts at restaurants and hotels. Who wouldn’t like less fumbling with unfamiliar currencies or exchange rates? And you can use it to visit sites all over this UNESCO Heritage of Humanity city. Like the Romanesque Old Cathedral, started in 1140 and completed more than a century later. Or the New Cathedral in a place so historic, new actually refers to16th century construction. Looking to take Salamanca by the horns? How about the Bull Fighting Museum of Primitivo Sanchez Laso? You can even visit Cielo de Salamanca, a painting illustrating the understanding of astronomy in the late 5th century. And that’s just the beginning. The Salamanca Card. In a golden city, it’ll make you good as gold too.
