Study Abroad in Spain this summer.

Summer in Seville

June 5 - July 12, 2019

Seville (Sevilla) is the capital city of Andalusia, one of the most visited, colorful, and historically significant regions of Spain. Seville is perhaps best known for being one of the most important Moorish kingdoms of the Middle Ages and the center of trade with the New World during the colonial era. In addition, many of the typically “Spanish” cultural phenomena that attract tourists (flamenco, bullfighting, tapas, orange trees and olive orchards) are identified with this southern city.

Seville is 2.5 hours away from Madrid. Some of the most popular coastal regions in Spain, Huelva and Cádiz, are even closer, as is Doñana, one of Europe’s largest national parks.
