After the Spain conference wrapped up on Saturday morning, the BCN Fulbrighters took advantage of the weekend to travel to Salamanca, Spain’s University town. Universidad de Salamanca was the first university in Spain, founded in 1170, and one of the first in Europe. The city feels stuck in time – which has led to the entire city being proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site to preserve its 14th Century mystique. The sunbaked buildings and mission-style roofs give the city a feel that can never be replicated. Salamanca, to me, serves as the quintessential Spanish town – a Plaza Mayor where the entire town gathers, a true paseo stroll every evening, and the breathtaking architectural history of the city. Not many sights to be seen here, but rather a Spanish feeling that must be experienced firsthand.
