Spain probably has more to offer for school trips than any other European destination. It offers endless possibilities for studies in a unique and beautiful environment. From art, food technology, history, tourism and of course language experience, Spain offers something for every studen.
To the north of Spin there are the bustling boulevards of Barcelona with its medieval Gothic quarter and outrageous architecture and the south there is Andalucía, home of flamenco, Moorish palaces and the famous Mezquita.
Here you will find just a few suggestions for your school trip, but remember, if you can’t find what you are looking for, please let us know and we will arrange a quote to suit your requirements.
Barcelona offers your students the opportunity to experience the language, art, cuisine and culture of Spain all at the same time, giving them an experience they will never forget.
No visit to Barcelona would be complete without a visit to at least a few of the following:
The Costa Brava is one of the best known parts of Spain’s coastline and with its excellent climate and spectacular coast it makes a great location for your school trip.
The Costa Brava also makes and ideal base for day trips to Barcelona, Figueres and Girona. And, in and around the pretty towns of Tossa de Mar, Lloret de Mar and Blanes there are plenty of activities to keep your students occupied.
Seville is located in the south of Spain and is the capital of Andalucía.
With its tapas bars, flamenco dancing, bull fighting, medieval streets and spectacular plazas, Seville will provide you with a truly Spanish experience.
Seville’s position in Andalucía makes it an excellent starting point for visiting some of the other great cities of the region. Suggested excursions from Seville include Cordoba, Cadiz, Jerez de la Fronterra and Huelva.
Cordoba is famous for its historical centre, dominated by the magnificent Mezquita – The Great Mosque of Cordoba, dating back to 785.
The Mezquita is the biggest and most beautiful mosque constructed by the Moors in Spain. While in Cordoba make a tour of the Jewish Quarter with one of the last remaining synagogues in Spain.
Cadiz is believed to be one of Europe’s oldest cities. Standing on a peninsular jutting out to sea, it is almost entirely surrounded by water.
The old central quarter of Cadiz is famous for its picturesque
charm and many of the old buildings reflect the city’s overseas links
Jerez is renowned for its sherry production, fine horses and flamenco music and dance. The town dates back to Moorish times with beautiful lined squares. If you are visiting Jerez a visit to the Museum of Equestrian Arts is a must.
Huelva is the Andalusian city most linked to the discovery of the Americas. Christopher Colombus lived in the nearby Rabida while preparing for his voyages. La Rabida, Palos de la Fronterra and Moguer are three key sites in the Colombus story, which lie along the eastern bank of the Rio Tinto Esturary.
Granada is another great destination for school trips to Spain.
Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and with impressive monuments such as the Alhambra, it is a city that has something to offer students all year round.
