My Morning Walk In Salamanca

Salamanca is our home for 2 weeks as we attend our second language school. It is a beautiful, compact city with a lot of history and it’s a bit amazing that I get to walk through it every day.

Following are a few pictures of my walk from our apartment to the school.

I approach the Plaza Mayor through one of the historic gates every morning

The Plaza Mayor is prettier at night when it is illuminated but I like it when the delivery vans have arrived to make their early morning deliveries. After a few weeks in Spain I’m sure that the most important thing to replenish is the ham!

There are multiple historic figures arrayed around the Plaza. I tell myself I will read about each one, but I haven’t done it yet

I’m always encountering street art in Spain – along with graffiti of course

A short walk North of the Plaza Mayor I always enjoy the elegance of this building

And, of course, there are churches and cathedrals galore in Spain. Below is the Parroquia de San Juan de Sahagún

And the doors often intrigue me the most

And just before I arrive at school I pop in at the Vasco de Gama cafe. I figure it was good enough for him it will work for me, too
