Latino Dancing and Graffiti Tour

In addition to the historic and monumental Salamanca well-known to tourists, there is another facet of the city less known and more linked to citizens, neighborhood life and social life. Using the West District of Salamanca as an example, the students in Carmen Quijada’s cultural exploration class have learned how cities can be regenerated through art. They have discovered the different types of urban arts that exist.
