CIEE Seville Summer Language & Culture
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.
The CIEE Study Center is located in a beautifully renovated Sevillano palace built in 1725. It is centrally located close to the Puerta de la Carne and about 10 minutes by foot from the main Universidad de Sevilla building (the Tabacalera). CIEE student services and CIEE administration are housed here. In addition, CIEE professors have offices in the CIEE Study Center, so that students may speak with them privately about issues related to their progress in class.
