I have to agree with our local guide, Salamanca is one of the nicest cities in Spain. Beautiful buildings, impeccably clean, sandstone galore. They call it the golden city because of the colour.

We enjoyed the cool room for a while before we headed out into Salamanca, it was too hot to go outside anyways.
