I am student at the University of Florida, studying public relations in the College of Journalism and Communications.

In the summer of 2001, I spent one month in Spain. I traveled there with a group of approximately 30 students and four teachers. All were high school students, mainly from around the state of Florida, but also from California, New York and Georgia. For the majority of that time we studied in the city of Salamanca, taking classes at the "Colegio de Espana," a school designed especially for international students.

While in Salamanca, we went on many different guided tours, given in both Spanish and English, of the historic monuments throughout the city. During these tours, I took copious notes, kept an extensive journal and took (what some may consider) way too many pictures. The majority of our tour guides were natives of Salamanca and therefore relayed pieces of information that are not found in textbooks or common guides of the city.

It is these details, coupled with my own experiences, that I hope have provided you with an extensive and interesting tour of Salamanca. The pieces of information presented are only a small portion of the vibrance and richness of the city. In order to truly experience Salamanca, you must travel there and go on your own "Walking Tour of Salamanca."
