“Salamanca, que enhechiza la voluntad de volver a ella a todos los que de la apacibilidad de su vivienda han gozado”.
This sentence puts into the mouth of Licenciado Vidriera by Miguel de Cervantes and is written on a wall opposite the Cathedral, the Plaza de Anaya in the fifteenth century is in effect today.
How is life in Salamanca?
For those who still do not know Salamanca and you need to find reasons for choosing it among many others Spanish university, here are a few reasons that will help you decide:
First of all, Salamanca is a university town. Everything revolves around the students and the university. This makes it undoubtedly a special place, as the percentage of young people is much greater than in any other city and there are numerous activities and entertainment culturares addressed to you.
The second, to give an order, the city itself. Salamanca is a historic town, small and manageable.
When I say history I mean not only the monuments that have them, and many, but the feeling is like to feel that the students have walked the same streets for over 500 years.
Size is also important. In Salamanca there is no distance. There are many pedestrian streets, and you can move from one place to another in minutes, on foot or by bike.
This greatly favors social relations. It's easy to find your friends on the street and usually have a coffee or a beer without having planned. In Salamanca you do not need to "get" with your friends, you need to plan your social life, but arises. And this really makes it different from other cities.
And, above all, Salamanca is a beautiful city, very nice to walk around, to live. I myself, of Salamanca, yet every day I discover beautiful corners did not know. I never get tired of walking through it.
I hope you have served these comments useful. This is only a short introduction to the life of Salamanca. The following posts I will comment more practical aspects such as the type and price of housing, the cost of living, etc.
