    • Residencia Las Conchas

      by airylady Online Now Aug 15, 2013 at 2:35 AM

      Hi! I just wanted to ask if anybody has heard anything about this residence. I'm thinking of staying there for a few weeks. The location is good, and the price is nice but I'm worried that I can't find any comments from people who lived there. I would be grateful if anyone could give me their opinion.

    • Travels from Madrid to Salamanca

      by Travel2012 Online Now Mar 12, 2012 at 6:34 PM

      I plan to travel to Salamanca from Madrid, hopefully by train. Do you suggest that I purchase the train ticket in advance or can I just purchase it at the station? Also, where can I find a train schedule (departures from Madrid to Salamanca and vice versa for the return)?

      I am a US citizen; I have read that the Reenfe.es site is a mess (not what it appears to be), so it was recommended that I book my ticket online at rail europe. Again, I would rather just buy my ticket at the station, if I can ??

      Also, not sure if the train runs a regular schedule on Sundays, as that is my return (from Salamanca back to Madrid). If not the train, then should I review bus options for the return?

      HELP!

      I'm studying abroad in Salamanca from September 21- December 17. Can someone give me the basic break down of the weather and maybe what clothes you suggest I pack? I can only bring about 50 Lb worth of stuff in my suitcase, so I can't bring my whole wardrobe! If it helps, I'm from southern louisiana, so I'm used to hot, humid weather with somewhat mild winters. Thanks for any input you can give me!

      from Salamance to Portugal

      by yuoi Online Now Apr 25, 2010 at 7:37 AM

      hello everybody!
      this summer we are planning to go to Spain and Portugal. The problem is that we have to be at the place named Celorico da Beira, and we have to reach it necessarily from Spain. so we think to see Madrid in the first place, then Salamanca and from there to go to Celorico da Beira, coz from the map we saw that there is a high road to the place we need.
      my question is if there is a bus or train which ll be able to bring us from Salamanca to Celorico da Beira? and how much time will it take?
      thank you! I appreciate all of ur advice.

      Student accommodation

      by safron111 Online Now May 21, 2008 at 4:56 AM

      Dear all,

      I'm studying at the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca for 4 weeks in July 2008. I am enrolled for shared double room + 3 meals at the University hall for 640euros a month. This seems a bit pricy to me, as I have been looking at ads online (for e.g. www.loquo.com). I know it's trickier because I'm only seeking to flat for 4 weeks, but do you have any suggestions?? I would prefer to cook my own food and have my own room, and for cheaper! ?Es posible, no?

      Gracias y hasta pronto!
