Salamanca is a historic mid-sized town located in west-central Spain, about 130 miles (214km) northwest of Madrid.

This ancient town was first conquered by the Carthaginians in the 3rd century B.C., later became a Roman settlement, and then was being ruled by the Moors until the 11th century.

The city’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its Romanesque, Gothic, Moorish, Renaissance and Baroque monuments. The Plaza Mayor, with its galleries and arcades, is particularly impressive.

Salamanca’s university, founded in 1218, is one of the oldest in the world.
