Spanish Language Immersion in Santiago De Compostela

GALICIA is always surprising, this part of the Northwest of Spain is a sharp contrast to the typical image of Spanish landscape abroad.

The capital City is Santiago de Compostela. The main towns are the capital cities of the four provinces - A Coruña, Lugo, Ourense and Pontevedra -, Vigo and Ferrol. The population, quite scattered, is almost three million inhabitants, with a density close to 100 inhabitants per square kilometer. Plains are scarce in this hilly landscape, but wild countryside and mountains form appealing spots and natural parks. Some mountains soar as high as two thousand metres in the massifs of Ancares, Courel, Manzaneda and Pena Trevinca. It owns a developed and articulated coastline that means one third of the Spanish littoral and presents such original forms that are not comparable to any other section, either Cantabric, Mediterranean or Atlantic; The phenomenon of the rías (estuaries) is therefore unique and peculiar to Galicia in the context of the Spanish coast.

Santiago de Compostela, situated in the northwest of Spain in the region of Galicia, has been a cultural and scientific meeting point since the middle age.

The city was born from a legend: the discover in 813 A.D. of the sepulchre of St. James The Apostle who was behaded in 44 A.D. in Palestine. King Alfonso II visited the site and ordered a modest temple and monastery to be built, erecting the center around which the city later grew.
