Study Spanish in SALAMANCA - SPAIN

casa lisSalamanca, one of the most ancient cities in Spain, and a university town par excellence, is located in the very heart of Castilla, close to both Madrid and the Portuguese border.

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the city’s rich diversity of architectural styles reflect its unique place in Spanish history. The Baroque splendour of the stunning Plaza Mayor, the two cathedrals (which combine in unique harmony both Romanesque and late Gothic schools), and the celebrated Plataresque facade of the main University building are merely the most famous monuments in a city full of lesserknown treasures.

The provincial capital has a welcoming character and lively atmosphere that win the heart of all who visit her. The University -founded in 1218 by King Alfonso IX-, a few years after those of Bologna and the Sorbonne- is one of the oldest in the world, and plays host annually to some thirty-five thousand Spanish students, who give the city a youthful, lively and happy air.

For all this, but above all because of the pure, correct Spanish spoken here, many foreign students, both young and old, have found that Salamanca is the perfect place to learn or improve their Spanish. A place where they can combine their studies with culture, art and an unrivalled social scene.
