SEGOVIA

CASTILLA Y LEÓN, SPAIN

WELCOME

An impressive aqueduct from the days of the Roman Empire marks the entrance to this fairy-tale Castilian city, with the Sierra de Guadarrama in the background.
After the initial amazement at this magnificent feat of engineering, with 167 arches held together only by the balance of forces, it’s time to visit towers, Romanesque churches, synagogues, Renaissance palaces, convents, gardens, hidden courtyards, a fortress which could have inspired the creators at Disney… In Segovia you don’t need a bus to see them all. You can enjoy each step and make the most of the walk.

Why is it a World Heritage Site?
You just need to stroll around the town to see why the old quarter of Segovia and the Aqueduct make up a World Heritage site. In a walk along the city walls you can see the Casa de los Picos, the Alhóndiga, Torreón de Lozoya, the church of San Martín… The first must-see is the Cathedral, known as the “lady of the cathedrals”, and the sensation of travelling through time continues with the mansions of noble families in the Caballeros district and the narrow streets of the former Jewish quarter.The second essential stop: the Alcázar, a castle with hidden passageways that seems straight out of a novel. We strongly recommend climbing the 152 steps of the spiral staircase in the Tower of Juan II. When you get to the top, the views are unique, and you begin to understand why some people compare this tower with the prow of a boat cutting through the waves, and why they say that Snow White’s castle at Disneyland was inspired by this Alcázar.Enjoying the streets of Segovia is wonderful, but if you go a little further out, you can find one of the viewing points to see the city from a distance, and feel the magic even more.

Cultural life, and for lunch… suckling pig
Apart from its monuments, the city has a wide range of cultural attractions all year, and its streets and other spaces always have music, dance, theatre or literature to enjoy. Its best known festivals include Titirimundi, the Segovia Music Festival and the Hay Festival. As well as traditional museums like the Antonio Machado House-Museum (the famous writer lived here from 1919 to 1932), surprising new spaces are emerging, like La Cárcel, a former prison which now offers exhibitions, film seasons, microtheatre, and so on.If you want something traditional for lunch, the most famous local dish is suckling pig in the legendary Mesón Cándido or in some new restaurant contributing a touch of modernity.

Hybrid course

Self-study + Onsite course in Segovia

This innovative Spanish training course combines two types of language teaching: Online self-study on the INTI platform and then the one week onsite course at the University of Segovia. The onsite course will carry on from where the self-study course left off.

The self-study courses corresponds to the A1 and A2 levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The course is based on video tutorials, self-correcting interactive exercises and audiovisual materials that contain cultural and functional elements. Inti has a WhatsApp query system for any questions.

The self-study courses are made up of 13 units, each with an approximate duration of 3 hours..

In the second part of this hybrid course, participants attend onsite Spanish classes taught by the University of Segovia. It is a language course for low intermediate, intermediate and high intermediate levels (A2, B1 and B2) with a total duration of 20 hours.

Our priority is the student’s communicative competence. To this end, we simulate situations that are as similar as possible to real life scenarios, working on the four macro skills (oral and written expression, listening, and reading comprehension).

Course dates (one week courses):

  • Sunday October 16 – Friday October 21
  • Sunday October 23 – Friday October 28
  • Sunday October 30 – Friday November 4
