Salamanca, a University city of excellence, in which more than 40,000 students live. Its streets are full of culture carved in stone, like the House of the Shells (la Casa de las Conchas), the Cathedrals or the Main Square (la Plaza Mayor), and of living knowledge. Furthermore, this city has been converted into a world icon of teaching Spanish, and for this reason every year thousands of foreign students approach the language of Cervantes in the cobbled streets of Salamanca.
