Magnificent Madrid, beautiful Barcelona, stunning Seville – Spain’s most majestic cities are favorite tourist destinations, but if you’ve been there, done those, or just want a different flavor, there are more cities in Spain worthy of your attention.
1. Eat and Be Merry in Salamanca
Salamanca, in central Spain, is commonly known as "The Golden City", on account of its lovely sandstone buildings which seem to glow when the rays of the sun caress them. Fashioned from sandstone that came from a local quarry, Salamanca is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and home to one of Europe's oldest universities. Salamanca's university was founded in 1218 and since then, generations of graduates have ensured that much of the wealth they created during their lifetime remained in the city. From the gorgeous 12th century Catedral Vieja and 15th century Casa de las Conchas, a monument decorated with hundreds of sandstone shells, to the lovely Baroque Plaza Major, Salamanca is a delight. After a day of sightseeing, join the university students at the city's main square and be inspired by their infectious enthusiasm. Plaza Major is a charming place to unwind with a drink and a meal.
