Salamanca

When I was in Spain, I took a day trip to the university town of Salamanca. A UNESCO world heritage site, Salamanca is host to one of the oldest universities in the world. It was founded in 1218 by Alfonso IX of León and today is still a popular place to study for students from all over the world. I got a little camera happy here as well. The architecture is incredible and history is truly in its stones...

Check out those spikes! No one getting in and no one getting out!
Spanish roses: gorgeous!
