My favorite group experience of the Verano Español trip was our excursion to Candelario. Candelario is located in the mountainous province of Salamanca and is a very historic location. I enjoyed the man-made streams that ran on the sides of the cobblestone streets along with the drinkable natural spring water constantly flowing through Candelario’s fountains. The second day, a group of students went on a hike into the surrounding mountains and a couple of us were able to summit one of the many peaks. The views we experienced were unforgettable and well worth our time. Candelario itself was a very unique location; It had a well balance of past and present that visitors could identify through the architecture and the culture itself. It was humbling to travel to a location such as Candelario and see how the people there conduct their day to day lives and how it differs from my own.
