Salamanca

Hi I’m in Salamanca, Spain right now. It is half way between France & Portugal. It’s really pretty and I love it. It has the fourth oldest university in the world! It was founded in 1134 and Christopher Columbus lectured at the university. Christopher Columbus is an explorer and he discovered Brazil and America. He is Italian and completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. Salamanca is famous for it’s university. I was reading about Salamanca and I found out that Salamanca was declared a UNESCO world heritage sight in 1988. UNESCO stands for United Nations Educational Science Cultural Organisation. It means they bring peace and universal respect for human rights. It means you can’t just go up to someone and kill or hurt them because you want their land.

We went to a plaza and had yummy breakfast. I thought the city was clean and there were lots of cobblestone streets and I liked it. Overall, Salamanca is awesome!
