Spain, stretching sun-drenched and untamed to the south of the majestic Pyrenees, is a passionate nation that combines its superb artistic and natural heritage with an infectious, go-ahead dynamism. Salamanca is an ideal location to spend your gap year in Spain, studying the local language and culture. It is considered one of the most spectacular Renaissance cities in Europe, and Salamanca’s Plaza Mayor is said to be the most beautiful plaza in Spain. Through the centuries, the sandstone buildings have gained an exquisite golden glow that has given Salamanca the nickname “la Ciudad Dorada” - the Golden City. The breathtaking Catedral Vieja and Catedral Nueva rise above the city, overlooking the river Tormes and the Roman Bridge. Students can experience the history of this magical city on their way to and from Spanish language classes, walking the streets to the plaza, and through the archways of the old quarter. The university area, the winding streets, the inviting architecture, and the warm people welcome newcomers to this enchanting city.
