Salamanca, Castilla y Leon, Spain

The dichotomy of Salamanca….the oldest University in Spain and the youngest population, surrounded by  twenty year old students and sandstone buildings that have been standing for hundreds of years, around every corner is an incredible architectural masterpiece and another photo opportunity.  Salamanca, in northwestern Spain, is the capital of the Castile and León region. Ruled successively by the Celts, Romans, Muslims and Spanish, it’s known for its ornate sandstone architecture and for the Universidad de Salamanca. Founded in the 1100s and an important intellectual center in the 15th-16th centuries, the university continues to contribute to the city’s vibrancy with its international student population.
