Camp Salamanca is located in the picturesque town of Salamanca located two hours north-west of Madrid. Known as the “Golden City” for the colored stone used in the construction of its most emblematic buildings, Salamanca lives up to its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This medieval town is surprisingly young given the number of university students that come to study as well as the thousands of international students who arrive each year to learn Spanish. It’s not surprising that so many people come here to learn Spanish, after all, this city is considered to be the cradle of modern day Spanish since the first Spanish grammar book was published here in 1492.
Our camp and residence are located steps from the Monastery of Saint Stephen and the world renowned Town Square or Plaza Mayor. The Calasanz School, housed in an majestic 19th century building, is our center in Salamanca. Here our campers will enjoy the benefits of a small town: easily accessible by foot, numerous monuments and historical landmarks and countless possibilities for activities and excursions. Some examples of our full day excursion destinations: Portugal, Ciudad Rodrigo, Avila, Segovia and the mountain village of La Alberca.
