From there headed to the famous college town of Salamanca. It is known for having a beautiful ancient skyline and driving into town, we were struck by how right that was. The things the town is known for are its Plaza Mayor, ancient university and colossal cathedral. The university was started in the 1200's and is known for putting out the likes of Coronado, Christopher Columbus and Cortez.
Driving into town we headed straight for the old city and the Plaza Mayor to look for a place to stay. We were lucky enough to find one just across the street. We spent two days in the city taking all of its beautiful sites.
