The best way to get to Salamanca is to fly via Madrid, where a lot of major airlines as well as low-cost ones have daily flights. Another option that might be cheaper depending on your place of departure might be flying via Porto (Portugal) and then taking a direct bus or train to Salamanca.
From Madrid to Salamanca
There are two options to get to Salamanca by bus:
Direct bus service from Adolfo Suárez Barajas Airport to Salamanca.
Metro line 8 (pink) from the airport to Nuevos Ministerios station, changing to line 6 (grey-circular line) and getting off at Méndez Alvaro, where you will find the bus station. From there, you can take a direct bus to Salamanca.
Metro line 8 (pink) from Adolfo Suárez Barajas Airport to Nuevos Ministerios, where you need to change to line 10 (dark blue) towards Hospital Infanta Sofia to Chamartin. The mainline train station is a short walk from the metro station.
World Heritage Site since 1988, Salamanca is the perfect combination of ancient and modern. Being home to the oldest University in Spain (it was founded in 1218, and has just celebrated its 800th birthday) and the first in Europe to hold the title of University, students have always been an important part of the city’s population.
You can enjoy the lovely view from the top of both Cathedrals, a nice walk to the other side of the river through the Roman Bridge, sitting down in Plaza Mayor, or admiring many other historic buildings in the city center. However, you can also get lost shopping in the many big stores in Calle Toro, eat traditional Spanish food in a restaurant in Rúa, or have some tapas and wine in one of the many bars you can find around the Plaza Mayor.
And the city is just as lively at night as it is during the day. When the sun goes down, the party starts. You can unwind all the pressure from the debates in one of the many pubs and clubs that are found around the city. With a great international atmosphere, it will be hard not to enjoy a night out.
Despite not being such a big city, there is a lot to do in Salamanca. But do not worry, our social committee takes care of organizing daily events and activities that will make sure you don’t miss any of the essential things to do in town!
The 79€ delegate participation fee includes:
All the necessary materials for the conference (e.g. delegate handbook and rules of procedure, free wifi at the venue, stationery, …).
Lunch from Tuesday to Friday at the university canteen.
Two coffee breaks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Socials every night - enjoy the nightlife in one of the best student cities in Spain.
Committee workshop on Sunday.
Salamanca City Tour or visit to the top of the Cathedrals.
