Salamanca is home to 180,000 inhabitants and offers all the advantages of a big city with the intimacy of a village. The city, located in Southwest Castilla y Leon, played an important role in the evolution and history of the Spanish language, reason why students from around the world choose to study Spanish there. The renowned university (established in 1175) is at the core of the city and students can easily access all areas of interest on foot.
This historical city is surrounded by many beautiful lakes and mountains. You'll be especially lucky if your visit coincides with the ‘Lunes de Aguas’ (Water Monday; which takes place on the Monday after Easter), when the citizens of Salamanca dress up in carnival costumes and follow a procession that leads to the river Tormes. Salamanca is undoubtedly one of the best places to learn a very pure form of Spanish in a fascinating context.
