DAY 4: Salamanca
Continuing with our exploration of the Castile-León region of northern Spain, our WYD pilgrimage spent a day in the Renaissance city of Salamanca, which is sometimes referred to as La Dorada, or “The Golden One”, because of its elegant sandstone architecture. It’s home to one of the oldest universities of the world.

The Cathedral of Salamanca is actually two churches joined together. First, there is the old cathedral dating from the 12th-13th centuries; and then the new one from the 16th century.
