Next to the city centre, this dominican convent prouds itself to its democratic roots. The 'Indios' are depicted as human beings as we all are, not a common thought in the middle ages. Both convent, cloister, church are worth visiting.

This convent and church are a must see in Salamanca. The architecture, the detailing (check out the facade) are impressive. The newly restored parts are beautifully presented, check out the peculiar flooring). The Stairway that leads to the first floor is spectacular.

Stunning building and treasures inside. The gilt altar is a sight to behold. The artifacts - bibles and ivories are quite amazing.

From all the monuments in Salamanca, this monastery stood out. Plan a few minutes extra to take a break in the cloister

Beautiful convent literally behind our hotel Hospes Palacio De San esteban and the courtyard was the view from our room. In my opinion better than the old cathedral. The small museum within the convent holds incredible historic items and is also worth seeing.

After admiring the cloisters and the painted wooden ceilings and them we wandered through a small chapel and into a side entrance to the main church. Very impressive indeed.
