The official university store has the usual branded merchandise, but it also sells some terrific souvenirs that won’t embarrass you once you get home. If you became enamored of the student singing groups, or “tunas,” one night on Plaza Mayor, you can purchase CDs here. Silk scarves that reproduce the Cielo de Salamanca in all its mysterious beauty are worth a splurge, but you can also purchase T-shirts, tote bags, puzzles, and drink coasters emblazoned with the same image. Or go tacky and buy your budding scholar a bright stuffed frog, the good-luck talisman of Salamanca students.
