The Experience

Capital of Andalusia, Seville was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is home to the ingenious Barber of Seville and the tempestuous Carmen. The great Renaissance painters Velázquez and Murillo were born here, and Ferdinand and Isabel ruled Spain from the royal apartments in the Alcazar Palace. Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop, and jazz concerts.

Housing arrangements vary depending on the program track you choose, but generally students can choose between apartments, homestays, and residencias. Please visit the “Housing & Meals” section of the program on the CIEE website for exact information on the housing arrangements for your program of interest.

Every program includes excursions and field trips to relevant cultural and historical sites.
