Our 37th Summer Providing Outstanding Programs for Teens

The Spice of Life.

The many cultured regions of Spain are passionate and diverse with their cuisine, fiestas, flamenco and bullfighting. Exploring Spain is like uncovering the story of Spain itself. There’s Seville’s old quarter, a myriad of winding streets and pedestrian squares converging on the famous Cathedral. The eclectic architectural styles of the Alcazar, a palace dating back to the 1360s. Granada, a Medieval town nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, with an amazing heritage of Arab and Jewish cultures, and home of the Alhambra, a 12th century Moorish palace and fortification. The Caves of Sacromonte, where the gypsies initially settled more than 600 years ago, carry the echoes of strumming guitars of flamenco cantes. And in Barcelona, in the region of Catalonia, discover its distinct identity and its very rich, ancient culture that dates back to the 10th century.
