In spite of its golden, sandy beaches and glorious Mediterranean climate, Murcia remains somewhat of a hidden gem. Compared with some of the larger Spanish cities, Murcia attracts few tourists each year and for this reason has managed to retain its authentic charm, making it the ideal destination for A-level Spanish students. Prepare to be fully immersed into the language and culture of this beautiful city, where you can truly experience life like a local and will never run out of opportunities to put your Spanish skills into practice, even outside of the classroom! Murcia is a university town, giving it a youthful atmosphere and a vibrant nightlife, yet the city is small enough to explore on foot, so you will find yourself acquainted with the area and its inhabitants in no time!
Our Spanish school in Murcia is located in the city-centre, just opposite the university and within easy reach of the city’s main attractions.
