Santiago de Compostela enjoys a cooler and more humid climate than the rest of Spain, which can be a great relief especially in the scorching heat of the summer months. Its climate aside, this region is the sunniest of all northern Spain. The Galician region is particularly suitable for horse-riding, walks and mountaineering. Apart from the language courses Iria Flavia regularly organises activities such as:

  • Tapas tours
  • Concerts and cultural events
  • Film showings
  • Cookery workshops
  • Exchange programmes with Spanish students(intercambios)

Because of its proximity to this region, Portugal is also a favourite destination for excursions.

Shared apartment

You will be staying in an apartment that you share with other students. Your stay is in a single room and you share the living room, kitchen and bathroom with the other students. A double room is possible for 2 students who enroll together.

Host family

Living with a Spanish host family in Spain will enable the student to see and understand many aspects of the Spanish lifestyle enabling them to obtain a better knowledge of Spanish culture, traditions, etc. Many host families have been chosen for these purpose in order to make the stay of our students as pleasant as possible. They will be treated as part of the family. Even though Santiago de Compostela is a relatively big city, the school will always try to accommodate students within a 20/30 minute radius of the school.

Residence

There are various residences all very centrally located (at about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the school). You will share the flat with for 3 to 6 other students with whom you will share the bathrooms and the kitchen. These can be students from the language school or from the local University.
All bedrooms are equipped with a desk, wardrobe and television. Towels and bed linen are provided for as well as a daily cleaning service.

Your stay is with half or full board. Half board is breakfast and lunch, breakfast is prepared by the students themselves in the residence kitchen (the residence will provide the necessary
ingredients like milk, coffee, bread and butter). Lunch and dinner will be served to the students in the residence's dining room.

The holy Galician city of Santiago de Compostela located in the far north west of Spain is a popular destination for both study and for an appreciation of history. The city is medium in size with a population of just under 100,000 inhabitants and in 2000 it was named the “European City of Culture” for that year. The primary attraction is the history associated with the city, which dates back to the 4th Century and is the ending point of the “el Camino de Santiago” pilgrimage.  Besides being a holy city, Santiago de Compostela is fascinating in many other ways.
