Salamanca in the day!

We started the day in Plaza Mayor!

Next up was a tour of the Cathedrals (a new Cathedral was built between the 1500’s & the 1700’s, but instead of tearing down the old one, they simply added the new one to the old one – quite unique!)! Seriously, what a cute little girl!!!

The ceiling inside the new cathedral – so beautiful!

While we were in the Old Cathedral a wedding started!

Then we got to climb up onto the roof of the cathedrals & finally up into the bell tower (the window in the circular part of the building behind us, but not the one way up in the roof part!)

The view from up there was incredible!! 

Here’s a funny thing: when they were renovating the cathedral one of the artists added an astronaut for fun! 

Sitting in front of the beautiful doors

Ezra found a fun piece of artwork outside the cathedral

We ended our time in Salamanca with a look at the Roman bridge & a great view of the Cathedrals behind!
