Dome of the Old Catedral or Tower of the Cock
and Dome of the New Cathedral
Its stones reflect the university students' life from yesterday and today, that prohibit the city from aging.

Century.

summary of history throughout the centuries. In its mix of quietness from the ancient
masonry, time has passed together with the joyful noise of the youth, that in its
invigorating spirit, resides the magic of Salamanca.
