Salamanca, 'City of Gold', is home to the oldest university in Europe and some of the world's most beautiful (and beautifully preserved) buildings. In addition to its golden sandstone buildings, the city is famed for its student population and festive atmosphere. The city lies 200km for Madrid, in the west of Spain, and many intellectual heavyweights came of age and published their works here - from Fray Luis de Leon to Miguel de Unamuno.
