Baroque splendour of Plaza Mayor
Friday 5 October: From Zamora it's a short bus ride to the beautiful old university city of Salamanca. An UNESCO World Heritage Site with twin cathedrals: Romanesque and Gothic (the new one!), a fine Roman bridge, expansive plazas and university buildings that rival those of Cambridge. The abundance of pretty young female students compliments the old city's appeal. Hostal Tormes, above C/Rua Mayor, couldn't be more central. Photos of Salamanca.
