The Iberian peninsula, which is now known as Spain and Portugal, was occupied by three main tribal peoples: the Iberians, the Basques and the Celts. The Iberians were coastal people who had some contact with Greeks and Phoenicians; they engaged in agriculture and metalwork. The Basques, an ancient tribe that appears to have come from more of a French-speaking background, lived in the northern area, near the Pyrenees and the Bay of Biscay—in fact there are still Basques in the region

Salamanca was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988 due to the beautifully preserved buildings in its Old City. A large modern city with the oldest university in Spain. Salamanca retains the intimacy of a traditional Spanish village and can be explored on foot. It is a living museum that takes visitors back to the Middle Ages, yet it is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city with a large population of international students. Explore the shops and cafés of the Plaza Mayor (Main Square). Take a tour of the University and other sites such as the Gothic House of Shells and the New Cathedral, built from 1513 through 1733. The Old Cathedral is still there and can be visited during free time, along with numerous other icons of Spanish architecture such as the 15th-century Tower del Clavero, the 16th-century Monterrey Palace and many beautiful churches and convents.
