Overview

As you leave Plaza Mayor, you'll see this lovely example of Romanesque architecture. Founded in 1103, and dedicated to St. Martín of Tours, it was, with the Catedral Vieja (old cathedral), the most important parish church in the city, and its clock ruled the lives of the people of Salamanca. Inside, there are some 15th and 16th century tombs belonging to the Santisteban family and an artistic Gothic choir. It still has two of the three original doors: the Romanesque door, which leads into Plaza Mayor and is really beautiful, and the one leading into the Rúa, which is Renaissance. The homes which are joined onto its walls are unique, and look as if they're part of the church.
