Salamanca, Spain

We spent the weekend in Salamanca, Spain. This is the cathedral (taken from the old Roman bridge).
It is an amazingly beautiful city with facades like this one all over the old part of the city.
This is the Plaza Mayor at night. The plaza is entirely enclosed by 3 and 4 story buildings, making for a constant hum of activity. The hours in Spain took a little getting used to - many restaurants open for dinner around 8 or 8:30 p.m. and it's hard to get any food at all early in the morning!
Part of the old cathedral was redone in the 70s, and this is an interesting addition! Anyone who wants more pictures of Salamanca let me know and I'll connect you with the gallery of photos!
