Salamanca’s Plaza Mayor

For years I read things about the Spanish city of Salamanca. Here was established one of the world’s first universities. It’s also an ecclesiastical city with it’s share of significant church buildings. The plaza mayor is famous in its own right, and for good reason. It is a sterling example of Spain’s architectural legacy. I finally got to see it and was mightily impressed. Take a look at the photo.

There are the requisite cafes, which I mostly avoid in pursuit of more exotic settings for a meal. More important are the throngs of people passing through for business or pleasure. Here the world collides politely. The people watching is fantastic. Take your time and see as much as you can.
