It has to be the most beautiful place to visit. The architecture is incredible & the old town know as the casco is just stunning. Enjoy meandering through the streets. The locals are so friendly too.

Salamanca is the home of the oldest university in Spain.It is a beautiful old Spanish city with much to see.There are many shops, bars, restaurants and plazas to explore.We visited it by train from Avila which takes about an hour.
