Plaza Mayor

There’s nothing more quintessentially Salamanca than filigree charra. This is a metalwork technique in which fine threads of metal, usually gold or silver, are intertwined to create delicate pieces of jewellery that look like lace. There are several shops specialising in filigree work in and around the beautiful Plaza Mayor.

Mercado Central

There’s no better place for foodie visitors to shop than the central market. Try the local delicacies while you’re there, so that you can choose your favourites and take some home with you. We recommend a bottle of wine and some local charcuterie, especially the chorizo, salchichón or morcón.

La Boutique del Torero

Professional and wannabe bullfighters and flamenco dancers head to this little boutique on the exterior of the Central Market building to get everything they need, and you can pick up some colourful, authentic items as souvenirs to take home with you. The shop is run by a helpful local, prices are very reasonable and the quality is good.

A Su Gusto Jabones

This little shop has a big name locally because of its colourful collection of handmade shampoos and soaps that look good enough to eat. One of their pretty gift baskets would make a great present for a loved one, if you can resist the temptation to keep it for yourself.
