Salamanca Place, Hobart

Sumérjase en la atmósfera de Salamanca Place, donde palpita el corazón cultural, creativo e histórico de Hobart.

Cuando se encuentre en Hobart, no olvide visitar Salamanca Place, en Sullivans Cove, el bullicioso corazón ribereño de la ciudad.  La vida de esta zona se centraba en la industria en la década de 1830, pero hoy en día esta pintoresca plaza adoquinada es un destino clave para los que desean disfrutar de la gastronomía, el arte, las compras y la música.  Pasee por las galerías y relájese bajo las sombrillas.  Adquiera exquisita artesanía de Tasmania en los mercados de Salamanca Markets, y baile al aire libre en el patio del Centro de las Artes de Salamanca.  Aquí la vida cultural de Hobart se encuentra con su rica historia.

Los sencillos almacenes georgianos que bordean Salamanca Place se construyeron en la década de 1830 para albergar grano, lana, aceite de ballena y mercancías importadas. Hoy los almacenes se han reinventado como galerías, teatros, cafés, bares y restaurantes.  Explore las boutiques que venden joyas, ropa y diseños urbanos, o eche un vistazo a las estanterías de una librería "underground".  Disfrute de una comida o un refrigerio bajo los arcos de piedra que frecuentaban marineros, balleneros y obreros.

Make sure you check out Salamanca Arts Centre, a collection of galleries and arts spaces across seven heritage warehouses. See a performance in the popular Peacock Theatre, watch local artists at work in their studios or catch an exhibition. Every Friday night, the arts centre courtyard fills with the sounds of gypsy, jazz and swing music. Soak up the atmosphere at any time of year.

On Saturday this waterfront square comes alive with the vibrant Salamanca Markets.   Buy a one-off piece from a local glassblower, potter, wood-worker or painter, listen to busking string-quartets or chat to growers about their organic apples.  The markets showcase Tasmania's fresh produce, its unique art and craft, as well as fashion design, some bric-a-brac and antiques. Lose yourself in the friendly bustle or watch the action from the shade of the majestic plane trees across the road.

Just behind historic Salamanca Place is modern Salamanca Square, where you can sit next to the fountain and watch the people stream past. Relax at the cafes, browse the fashion boutiques or buy delectable local cheeses and home-made jams from the gourmet outlets. The manicured lawns in the square's centre are a great place to laze after a long lunch.

From Salamanca Place you can also wander to adjoining wharves, where British convicts once stumbled ashore and whalers hauled in their cargo.  Nowadays the piers are lined with seafood restaurants, swaying yachts and fishing boats. On Constitution Dock you can see the huge visiting cruise ships or cheer for the wind-battered winners of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race in December.

At the hub of all this action is Salamanca Place, where Hobart's heart beats.
