Salamanca Spain

Salamanca Spain - A Video By Herman Ashley

Salamanca is a city in western Spain, the capital of the province of Salamanca, which belongs to the autonomous community of Castile and Leon (Castilla y León). The Old City was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.

It lies about 200 km west of Madrid and 100 km east of the Portuguese border. With a population around 160,000 it is the third most populated city in Castile and Leon, following Valladolid and Burgos.

Salamanca is known both for its monumental sights and the University of Salamanca, which was founded in 1218 and is the oldest university in Spain and the fifth oldest western university. With its 30,000 students, the university is, together with tourism, the economic engine of the city. Salamanca is also known for the teaching of Spanish language in this field, Salamanca houses 16% of the offer available in Spain and is known to attract thousands of foreign students.


The city was founded in the pre-Ancient Rome period by the Vacceos, a Celtic tribe, as one of a pair of forts to defend their territory near the Duero river. In the third century BCE, Hannibal laid siege to the city. With the fall of the Carthaginians to the Romans, the city of Helmantica, as it was known, began to take more importance as a commercial hub in the Roman Hispania due to its favorable location. Salamanca lay on a Roman road, known as the Via de la Plata, which connected it with Emerita Augusta (present day Mérida to the south and Asturica Augusta (present-day Astorga) to the north. The Roman bridge dating to the first century, was a part of this road.

With the fall of the Roman Empire, the Alans established in Lusitania, and Salamanca was part of this region. Later the city was conquered by the Visigoths and included in their territory. The city was a already an episcopal see, and signatures of bishops of Salamanca are found in the Councils of Toledo

Salamanca surrendered to the Moors, led by Musa bin Nusair, in the year 712 CE. For years this area between the south of Duero River and the north of Tormes River, became the main battlefield against the Muslim invaders. The constant fighting of the Kingdom of León first, and the Kingdom of Castile and León later against the Caliphate depopulated Salamanca and reduced it to an unimportant settlement. After the battle of Simancas (939) the Christians resettled this area. After the capture of Toledo by Alfonso VI of Castile in 1085, the definitive resttlement of the city took place. Ramón de Borgoña, instructed by his father-in-law Alfonso VI of León, led a group of settlers of various origins in 1102.

Toledo Spain - A Must See Town and Perfect Day Trip From Madrid | 90+ Countries w/3 Kids

Join us for a tour of Toledo one of the most visited places in all of Spain!

We were completely amazed. Walking through the streets of this city made us feel that we had gone back to the Middle Ages when Toledo was the capital of Spain. It was one of the most important centres in Europe from the Gothic epoch until 1560 and its buildings stand tall to witness this period in time.

The architecture is really impressive with the main sights being the large fortress (alcázar) built by the monarchs, the vast and richly decorated cathedral, and the impressive archdiocesan palace built by the prelates of Toledo, primates of the Spanish church.

However, apart from the stunning infrastructure we also realized that there are so many souvenir shops in the city that also express the culture and identity of Toledo. They are filled with beautiful handmade products.

The city is surrounded by the River Tajo on three sides and two medieval walls on the fourth side.

Enjoy the video and let us know where you are watching from.

Salamanca Spain with Kimbop TV

My husband's favorite city in Spain is Salamanca.

Salamanca is located in the region of Spain called Castile and Leon. It is home to the oldest university in the country, and I'm very tempted to see if I can study there one day alongside students from all over the world.

I can't believe that we are already winding down on our Northern Spain tour. This video also highlights some of the smaller cities we pass by along the way.

Please let me know how you're enjoying my Spain travel vlog series. The last episode is coming next week - featuring Madrid!

Visiting Toledo, Spain on Audrey's Birthday Travel Video Transcript:

Well Hello,

So today is July 23rd. Which means it is my birthday! So Sam and I are going to take a little day trip. We've been staying in Madrid but Toledo is only thirty minutes away by train. So we're going to head out and have some birthday adventures in a new city.

We've arrived and it is a beautiful train station. Time to get the birthday girl some lunch. Yes.

So we decided to walk into the city which was maybe a mistake considering it is almost forty degrees out. We should have just grabbed a taxi but at least they have these escalators that help you reach the summit of the center of the old town I guess. So yeah, it is nice being in the shade and not having to climb stairs.

It is kind of funny because just outside of the escalators are these old ruins. So you have something very modern and then you have the ruins right beside it. Yeah, quite the contrast.

So we made it to the top. And this is our reward. Check out these views.

Birthday girl, what is your starter? Alright, so we found a nice little restaurant and I've ordered Gazpacho which is a cold tomato soup with onions, peppers and cucumbers. But you can't see any of that because it looks like they've just liquefied it and turned it into a bit of a cream. But let's try it.


Refreshing? That is so refreshing on a day like today. And it is a little bit tart and tangy which I really like.

I could drink this out of a glass it is so good.

And what is your entree? I'm trying something I've never tried before. It is called Migas de Pastor. And if you look down here it has got meat, it has got some kind of breadcrumbs here and it also has veggies. I think these maybe peppers. Let's take a bite with the meat and the breadcrumbs. How is it? It's really good. I think that is a piece of like chorizo meat. Nice! Spicy!

And what does the birthday gal have?

So I'm having a type of Tortilla which is basically potatoes and egg. Kind of like an omelette style meal. This also has ham in it. And I've got some pork right underneath. They've soaked it in ketchup which I'm not a huge fan of. But it is alright. I actually had this for breakfast today and that was a little bit better.

So I see your main dish has arrived. You know what, this is actually my favorite Spanish dish that I've tried since I've been to Spain. It is called Paella. Take a look down here. We're going to be doing a bit more of a dedicated video to this soon but for now you can basically know that it is a mixed type of rice with seafood and vegetables. Alright, let's take a bite of that.

And over here in Spain wine is like water. I had a choice between water and wine so I got my own bottle. I think I made the right decision.

Aren't you glad we got about a thirty minute break in between our main course and dessert? What do you have? I am having flan. And I don't really know how to describe this dessert except to say that it is popular in South America and in Spain. And your Mom makes a really good flan. Yes, and the brown stuff you see it is kind of like caramelized sugar but I really can't explain the dessert itself because I have no idea what it is made with even though I've eaten it my whole life.

So we are now visiting the Alcázar, which is the one building that dominates the city skyline. And they also have a really cool military museum. And normally I wouldn't be into that but because it is so hot outside it has actually been really nice being indoors with AC. Just learning a bit of the history by force.

I'm beginning to realize that Spain is more of a winter destination. All we've been doing since we've come here is sweating like pigs.

So we are hiding indoors again. We found a little corner store with lots of fans and Popsicles. So trying to cool down here people.

So I think that is about all we can handle for today. So cooling off yet again with ice cream cones this time. And now we're going to head back to the train station and try to get back to Madrid a little bit earlier than planned.
