Salamanca

Few cities in Spain can boast such a combination of historic importance, architectural beauty and cosmopolitan nature. Its Old Town was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1988 and its University, founded in 1134, is the first university of Spain and fourth of the western world. Take a stroll at night to see the city at its best, when all the monuments and palaces are lit up.

The imposing Plaza Mayor, of baroque style, is often considered to be the most beautiful in Spain and is the heart of the city.

Not far south of the city, the Sierra de Francia Mountains are of spectacular beauty. In this region we can find places like Guijuelo, which produces some of the best hams and cured meats in the world.
