We cross a Roman bridge over the River Tormes to reach the Salamanca Cathedral, sitting high on the hill.

The Cathedral is actually two large Cathedrals, this main nave, down, and arches are part of the new Cathedral, constructed between the 16th and 18th century. From the ground floor there is an opportunity to go up to an interior balcony and view the Cathedral.

  1. Janice, I am green with envy. I’ve been to Spain several times and not spent enough time doing what you are doing… uncovering marvelous gems from another culture, from another time! Next time I go it will be on MY agenda (I usually go with siblings) 🙂

    1. Hi Kendra, I carry a bit of equipment – canon 5d mark iii, a 24 – 105 lens, a 1.4 teleconverter (i settled for this rather than a big lens!) and a fish-eye lens. I have one 6 stop ND filter and a very lightweight tripod. I process using Camera Raw and Photoshop, which means I carry a mac book air.Camera gear is about 6k, which is too much, I know, but I can’t help myself. I have a wonderful husband who helps me carry some of my stuff. We have the luxury of time, we walk shorter distances, and stay in some places a little longer than most who are walking the Camino or Via la Plata. Occasionally we resort to taking the bus on longer journeys! We are not the typical pilgrim – often choosing to stay in places where we can have a private room as well. I hope this helps.
