All group travel in Spain is included, but transportation to and from Spain is not included. Students will visit the Alhambra Palace, the Cathedral of Burgos, Montserrat and Altamira, as well as many other exciting attractions in cities all over Spain. Attendance at concerts, theatre and dance productions, museums and bullfights are incorporated into the semester calendar to expose students to the variety of Spanish culture.
The activities organized throughout the semester complement the material being taught in the classroom. The lectures from the classroom extend into a hands-on learning atmosphere, enriching students' knowledge of Spanish culture. Guided weekend trips are also organized to cities surrounding Salamanca, including: Avila, Peña de Francia, La Alberca, Bejar, Canderlario and Cuidad Rodrigo. Overnight trips include Madrid, Barcelona, Segovia, Toledo, Santander, Cuenca and Granada. Art, history and literature come alive when you can study first-hand the works that once were only names in a textbook.
During the program, students will have vacations and free weekends for travel and personal exploration at their own expense. We do encourage family and friends to join the excursions by arranging the details with the onsite director with anticipation.
