Salamanca is located in the N/W of spain and is nicknamed the Golden city. Over the centuries, the sandstone renaissance buildings have taken on a golden glow. It even managed to glow under the dark, gloomy hail storm.
The main square is "plaza mayor", and is a beautiful picturesque setting. Unfortunately, I kept my camera at bay due to the weather. We did manage to sneak in a flamingo show and enjoy our selves and the beautiful city, despite the horrible weather.
