Madrid Summer

Program Overview

Madrid Summer

During a typical Madrid summer, throngs of madrileños flock to the streets of the city where they sip coffee on terrazas, sample tapas at the city's bars, or simply stroll and watch the parade of fashionable Spaniards. Every Sunday in the summer, the Plaza de las Ventas, Spain's largest stadium for corridas de toros (bull fights), features the country's leading toreros (bull fighters).The seat of Spain's government, Madrid is also a cultural center and home to many famous museums, including the Prado and the Reina Sofia, where Picasso's Guernica resides.

Over the course of the summer, you will come to know the city's vibrant plazas and winding streets for yourself. IES Abroad's Madrid Summer Program offers enrollment in IES Abroad courses, housing in student apartments as well as in homestays with local families, extracurricular activities, and field trips.

Visit www.IESabroad.org for complete program details.

NOTE: Program dates listed in Studio Abroad are approximate. Please refer to IES Abroad predeparture materials for planning travel.

Why Madrid?

We dare you to get bored in Madrid—you can wander around the Plaza Mayor, visit the city's many churches and cathedrals, enjoy the sunshine in one of Madrid's many parks, see a Flamenco show, watch a Real Madrid soccer game, taste the city's unique cuisine—should we go on? Not only is Madrid the capital city of Spain, it's also the heart of the country. Located in the center of Spain, Madrid is a great starting point to explore this gorgeously diverse country. Have you packed your bags yet?

Accommodation & Meals

Study abroad participants have several options when it comes to housing:

Homestay - Live in Spanish homes with a señora or a family. This option includes eating breakfast and one additional meal per day (lunch or dinner) with the host. In many cases, more than one IES Abroad student is placed with a señora or family.

Homestay with kitchen privilege - For students interested in a homestay but who prefer to purchase their own food and prepare their own meals, this option should be considered. This choice includes a meal credit. A very limited number of these placements are available.

Apartment - Share apartments located in residential areas in Madrid. Apartments are furnished and feature fully-equipped kitchens. Utilities, regular cleaning, and wireless Internet access are included, as well as the support of a Spanish compañero. Space is limited, and meals are not included.
