Nicknamed "The Golden City" because of its ornate honey colored sandstone buildings, Salamanca is home to Spain's oldest university that was founded in 1134. The University of Salamanca is the 3rd oldest university in Europe after Oxford and Bologna and has been in continuous operation for 800 years. It was an intellectual hub in the 15th and 16th centuries and continues to be so with its international student population hustling around the city. Salamanca is an historical city that can trace its beginnings back to Roman times. Hannibal sacked the city and the Moors conquered it in AD712. This small city is one for the history buffs or those into awesome food, as it doesn't have sun worshipping surf beaches, cider houses or international film festivals happening. But it does have coworking spaces, so if you need to get some stuff done or wish to mingle with the innovative tech savvy locals, you know where to go.
A university city with about one fifth of its 160,000 inhabitants being students, it has an ambitious and outward looking attitude. Where once Hannibal and his elephants blundered around, Salamanca is now a celebrated town of elegant streets, bustling tapas bars, museums to wander through and quaint delicatessens stuffed full of local goodies fit for a feast. The Plaza Mayor is where you can sit at one of the many outdoor terraces scoffing on a baked pastry stuffed with ham, bacon, sausage and egg or pig out on "farinato" (white sausage) or "chanfaina salmantina" (stew of trotters, sweetbreads, chorizo and rice). Almond and honey deserts will have you smacking your lips and wanting more, while the gelato bars will leave you dribbling.
When you shut the door on your coworking venue in the evenings, the Plaza Mayor will be calling you to linger for a while on your way home.
