Setting Description:
Salamanca exudes a unique medieval charm that makes it the perfect university town. Established in 1218, the University is Spain’s oldest and is world-renowned for the teaching of Spanish as a second language. In Salamanca you can walk everywhere and, being a university town, it offers a rich art, sports, and cultural scene for students. Most here would agree with a character in a Cervantes novel who exclaimed, “everyone who comes to Salamanca finds themselves spellbound with the need to return to it.”
