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.

Casa de las Conchas

It is one of the most popular palaces of Salamanca and one of the best examples of Spanish Gothic civil architecture. It was commissioned in the late 15th and early 16th century by Don Rodrigo Arias Maldonado, a relative of the Catholic Kings and Knight of the Order of Saint James. The shells are the main ornaments of the building’s facade.

The basement of the house later became the place where University students paid the penalties imposed by what was then their Vice-chancellor. It is currently used to house a public library and an exhibition room.

Convent of San Esteban Church

The Dominicans settled in Salamanca between 1255 and 1256. In the present site, occupied by the parish church of San Esteban, they erected a convent that was destroyed to build the current one in 1524 on the initiative of Cardinal Fray Juan Álvarez de Toledo.

According to tradition, Columbus stayed in the primitive convent when he went to Salamanca to defend before the geographers of the University the possibility of reaching the Indies by sailing towards the West.

During the Counter-Reformation it was an important center where many Dominican fathers were formed. They founded the Salamanca School, with Francisco de Vitoria at the head, and helped  St. Teresa de Jesus and St. Ignacio de Loyola.
