Located at the top end of Calle Zamora on the junction with Av.de Mirat you can’t fail to notice this unusual building on the left. I would have been interested in having a look round inside but it was closed when we passed by. If...More

I looked forward to visiting this venerable, ancient and (given the other churches in the city) rather unusual circular church. Unfortunately, it was always closed when we tried to visit and looked to have unhelpful opening times - so if you want to get into...More

Sit and enjoy the building and grounds surrounding the Church, it was closed when I visited but I enjoyed the ambiance beside it

Amazing round shaped church of San Marcos close to the centre of Salamanca. Even more beautiful at night time when the outside walls are illuminated. Very impressive

San Marcos Church is a small church but round in shape just at the side of the busy street in Salamanca. There are just a few fresco inside but the internal part is extremely dark for viewing.

Walked through the town streets to locate this delightful building - circular and lovely attractive stone. Disappointing as locked so no access

The round shape and a couple Fescos on the interior walls are what makes this small church interesting. It was extremely dark inside during our brief visit.

The old building is still in great shape and is probably the only round one still around. It is situated in one of the laneways and well worth a visit.

The Romanesque building has a circular floor plan and was built in the 11th century. There are three naves that end in a semicircular apse. There are 14th century Gothic paintings of scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary.
