Now that you hear about it, it probably sounds familiar. It is located in central Spain and is absolutely beautiful. Its main draw is its sandstone buildings that date back as far as the 13th century. It earned the name “The Golden City” because when the sun sets, the sandstone buildings emit a sort of glowing light, so it is definitely something to see. If you are into other architecture, the Cathedral Veija is stunning and the Baroque Square Plaza Major is where people tend to hang out.
