Academia-Ibérica - Salamanca
Standing on three hills, the towers of Salamanca seem to welcome visitors from the moment they come into view. The glowing sandstone of the city throws off a very special light, giving the whole town a quite unique atmosphere.
Lying on the banks of the river Tormes, this old Castillian town is located 200km from Madrid and just 90km from Portugal.
Columbus, Cervantes and Unamuno all lived here, and Francisco de Rojas was inspired to create his famous work, "La Celestina" within these walls.
Today the three universities (including one of the oldest in Europe) and of course the university students, give Salamanca it's own special character.
It is a cosmopolitan city visited by language students from every corner of the globe, here to experience modern Spain within ancient walls and to learn the pure, accent free Castillian spoken and understood all over the world.
