As I mentioned in my last Travel Tuesday post, I recently visited Salamanca, Spain. This historic university town is filled with old buildings from the Renaissance. Many noble families lived here and you can still see their crests on the sides of some of their palaces.
In Spanish, the term for the historical town center is casco viejo, which translates to "old helmet." There are a lot of old helmets in Salmanca!
