SALAMANCA QUEST

!

Welcome to the Salamanca Quest. This paper contains all the challenges that you must face in order to win. In this regard, all the activities are related to Salamanca history. You are not allowed to use internet to find the solutions, but you can ask to all the citizens that you like. You will have only 1 hour and 30 minutes to conquer all the challenges and win! MAY EUROPE BE WITH YOU!

CLUE

In Salamanca the most common place to meet is “UNDER THE CLOCK”.

TASK

Miguel de Unamuno was a Spanish philosopher and writer. In his work he cultivated a great variety of literary genres: novel, essay, theater and poetry. Since the beginning of his residency in Salamanca, he took an active role in cultural life. He was rector at the University of Salamanca from from 1900 to 1924 and 1930 to 1936. Find his medallion, and all the group must take a selfie with him.

CLUE

This remains as the place of residence for the Dominicans.

TASK

The doctrine of Maestro Francisco de Vitoria, both in its philosophical foundation and in its legal application, has given important contributions —with its slight differences—to the global human rights movement. Take a group photo with Francisco de Vitoria.


GROUP 1

CLUE

¿Where do you find the SCALA COELI?

TASK

¡You found it! A new balcony on the towers of la Clerecía in which you can discover, from the very top, the splendor of this city of world heritage. Now look for the university gate, and take a group photo like you were an excited student on its first day of class.

CLUE

The New, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles are created, and then grow from one another. La Vieja, of a Romanesque style.

TASK

Look for the astronaut and the devil eating an ice-cream, and take a selfie with them.

CLUE

Legend has it that under one of these shells, you can find and ounce of gold…

TASK

This building has a very interesting story. In order to know it, search for a person to tell you about the legend, record it in video or audio.


GROUP 1

CLUE

Another legend says that if you find this FROG you will pass your exams.

TASK

This place contains the medallion of the Catholic Monarchs (Fernando and Isabel). Take a picture pointing directly to the spot where is the frog.

CLUE

Look for “EL CIELO DE SALAMANCA” (The Salamanca sky).

TASK

On almost every university building, you will find famous "vítores". In the courtyard, find the vítores that the group likes the most, take a picture.

CLUE

¿What place did Fernando de Rojas choose to recreate CALIXTO Y MELIBEA?

TASK

Make a video representing a scene from La Celestina: “Calixto enters the garden of Melibea and, upon seeing her, falls in love with her (with Melibea). He begins to speak to her, but she rejects him”.

THE FINISH LINE

Upload all your tasks (photos and videos) on the Instagram of Mindfulness. Run and wait “under the clock”! User: mindfulnessandwellbeing Password: ErasmusPlus2018 #MindfulnessAndWellbeing #BelieveInEurope #ErasmusPlus
