Salamanca is a city steeped in history. Its sandstone architecture, glowing Plaza Mayor, ancient university, cobblestone streets and stunning cathedrals – all surrounded by Castile and León landscapes – will bring you into the Spain of castles and kings.
Salamanca is a small city, where you’ll get to know the barman at your favorite neighborhood café; where you’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the places that inspire you; where you’ll be able to walk everywhere and practice your Spanish with friendly locals you meet at the frutería down the street. It is a place where Spanish immersion – immersion into Spanish history, culture, tradition – can truly take place.
We love that studying Spanish in Salamanca means learning the language at the heart of it all. It is a place where you will discover the Spain of old and journey into a place where history, tradition and learning are second to none. We love that the juxtaposition of the young, university vibe with ancient buildings and deep Spanish traditions creates an environment that inspires learning and discovery; that walking down any street or wandering through any plaza means getting a glimpse into Spanish history and a lesson in Spanish culture that couldn’t be found in any book or learned in any classroom.
Salamanca is truly a special city for learning Spanish.
