Oviedo sits at the foot of the Aramo mountains, just 23 miles from Spain’s northern “green” coast. Historically, the city dates to the tenth century it was the capital of the Asturian Kingdom and an important stopover point on the Camino de Santiago. Today, Oviedo has an urban design which promotes equity and inclusion in historic sites, public squares, car-free livable streets and a culture public gathering places, sidewalk cafes, markets and bars. It has a reputation for being one of the safest and cleanest cities Spain, offering great quality of life for our students. The hospitality and warmth of the Asturian people coupled with the absence of mass tourism and low presence of English speaking visitors in the region are the keys to Oviedo’s strength as a student learning environment for cultural and linguistic immersion. During the summer months there are numerous festivities and special events held in Oviedo and nearby locations.
