Photo Essay: My Favorite Spanish City

by Gigi Griffis


It’s a city full of surprises.

There’s the ancient architecture, the old city walls, the delicate cathedrals, yes. But there’s also a gritty graffiti-covered devil-may-care side to the city. And at the same time it’s surrounded by nature. Walking paths. Riverside fishing piers. Towering cliffs covered in (oddly enough) pigeons.

It is, hands-down, my favorite Spanish city so far. I’d take it over Malaga, Nerja, Barcelona, or even Seville any day of the week.

Don’t make a final decision on “favorite” until you have been to Salamanca. It was our favorite from this year’s visit to Spain.
