Town Hall, Salamanca

Salamanca still centres on its fine arcaded Plaza Mayor (1729–33; designed by Alberto Churriguera and completed by Andrés García de Quinones), which was originally intended to serve on occasion as a bullring and which has a surrounding arcade ornamented on two sides with medallions of the kings of Spain. There also is the Town Hall (Ayuntamiento) designed by Alberto Churriguera and completed only in 1755 by Andrés García de Quiñones.
