The links are in Spanish but all of them say the same.
I can see no contradiction; no one claims that Salamanca was the first university founded in Spain but that it's the oldest one which is true since the original Palencia university founded in 1208 does no longer exist.

Beautiful, stately university city with amazing churrigueresque style of architecture. The new movie Vantage Point features cool aerials and street/plaza scenes of Salamanca, but the movie itself is crap.

Great pics...
