From the hotel you can discover by feet many of the lovely places and the historical buildings of the city: the Convent of San Esteban, the cathedrals and the buildings of the oldest university of Spain, the impressive University of Salamanca.

Salamanca is a world of possibilities decorated with majestic historical buildings and the inspiration of the University atmosphere. A stroll through its beautiful cobbled streets will be enough to make you fall in love with the city, especially at night, where the city lights discover the rich history of its buildings.


Church of San Polo, the Leonese name for San Pablo, is the unbeatable location of the hotel. The building was mainly built with bricks, although stone can be found in the altar area and sporadically in some walls.

The access could be through two entrances: the southern one and the western one; it is said the main entrance was the western one because was in the middle nave. The original building is not preserved because it was reformed in 1529 that gave the church a Gothic facade. From this reformation from the 16th century there is left the doorways and a corner shield from Francisco Sánchez de Palenzuela. The front wall was reformed in the last third of the 19th century: the gothic corbels with near thirty statues were retired and new hollows were opened.

The southern entrance is small and was formed by a sharp arch and framed by a round arch. On the top of the entrance there were three windows, the middle one was the smallest and the only one that is conserved nowadays.
