Plaza de las Agustinas, 7, Salamanca, Spain 37002Map
Neighborhood: Centro

Five minutes from Plaza Mayor, very close to Monterrey Palace, is this marvellous church built in the 17th century in accordance with the purest Italian style rules of architecture. The eight-sided Madrid-style cupola, which replaced the original which collapsed two years after it was built, is striking. Inside, the decor is basically marble, with five altarpieces, a magnificent pulpit and statues of the founders praying. The most striking feature, however, is the splendid painting of the Immaculate Conception, by José de Ribera, on the main altar. Admission: free. Mass times: 7:30p M-F, 8p Sa, noon, 1p, 2p & 8p Su
