Spanish course in Ibiza, Spain!
Study on a Spanish course in Ibiza and discover the hidden charms of this beautiful island! Ibiza is famous for its amazing nightlife, but it’s also blessed with stunning beaches, great natural beauty, picturesque villages and a rich history. For instance, in Ibiza town (Eivissa), where our Spanish language school is based, the walled old town dates back more than 400 years!
Within the walls you’ll find atmospheric, narrow streets, art galleries, cosy cafés and the superb Museum of Archaeology, boasting some of the best-preserved Phoenician artefacts in the world. A walk along the walls, meanwhile, is rewarded with dramatic views of the city and its sparkling marina. Journey inland to explore traditional whitewashed villages like Sant Joan de Labritja or Moorish-inspired Balàfia. Ibiza is a destination that has something for everyone!
