City Hall of Salamanca. Plaza Mayor
The works of the artists and companies participating in the competition section are projected on the facade of the City Hall of Salamanca. The Plaza Mayor of Salamanca condenses and describes the events and transformations that the city has undergone throughout its history. The construction of its present appearance took place between 1729 and 1756. Since then, the square has witnessed the most important cultural, political, civil, festive and religious events of the city.
The Plaza Mayor of Salamanca was declared a National Monument in 1935, for being the most decorated, proportioned and harmonious square of its time. It was also considered a Historic Artistic Monument in 1973.
The plaza reached its 250th anniversary at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
