The Old City of Salamanca (Spain)- When the Italian Renaissance's fresh winds of change swept into Salamanca in Spain, it evolved into a city of learning, adorned with historic structures. In the city of Salamanca, home to Spain's oldest university, there are a large number of historic structures including the Baroque style Plaza Mayor, huge cathedrals, and the Convent of San Esteban. Spain's unique architectural style called Plateresco can be discerned in these structures. The Historic Center of Evora, Portugal - evora, had prospered since Roman times, but in the Renaissance period a university was built in the city, making it an important center of Portuguese culture. The Historic Center of evora is just like a living museum with its collection of structures that date from Roman times to the 17th Century, such as a Roman temple, a cathedral, a convent, the university, and a wall that surrounds the city. This city, which offers visitors a chance to see the footprints of history, is a symbol of Portugal's golden age.
