In 1988 Salamanca was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in 2002 it was the European Capital of Culture. It has sixteen museums within walking distance from the site of the conference. We will benefit from the proximity to the Romasnesque and Gothic Cathedrals and will have guided tours to visit all sights. Given the short distances within the central area of the city, the conference site can be reached on foot from the main hotels and university residences where rooms will be available to participants. The famous Plaza Mayor, is only ten minutes away walk.
The Conference will be held at the Historical Buildings of the University of Salamanca, a magnificent construction from the 16th century, with its well known Plateresque façade, Historic Library and famous halls inside and in a recently remodeled building right across the street.
The University of Salamanca is one of the oldest in the world, founded by King Alphonse IX shortly after the Universities of Bologna and Paris. The building you can see today however was built at the time of the Catholic Kings, and is considered a masterwork of Plateresque style. The façade is ornamented with numerous figures, the most famous among them the frog on a skull, which numerous tourists try to make out.
