Salamanca is considered one of the most spectacular Renaissance cities in Europe. It is located in central Spain, amidst a landscape strewn with battlefields and castles, in an area where the kingdoms of Castilla and Aragón first unified Spain. From these roots, “Castellano,” or “Spanish,” became dominant throughout Spain. Salamanca’s Plaza Mayor is said to be the most beautiful plaza in Spain. Throughout 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. The Casa de las Conchas is a stunning edifice of shells carved into golden sandstone. One experiences the history of this magical city when roaming the streets and walking through the archways of the old quarter. The university, the winding streets, the inviting architecture, and the warm people welcome newcomers to this enchanting city.
API offers two summer high school programs in Salamanca that focus on Spanish language and cultural immersion. One program is geared towards younger students (completing grades 8-9), while the other is for older high school students (completing grades 10-11) and offers the opportunity to earn college credit.
“The best part of studying abroad was the people I met. That is why this experience exceeded my expectations. I have made lifelong friendships. Also, our Resident Director did an awesome job and we all love her! All-in-all it was a great experience."
