We propose a very special program: Spanish Course and ‘Literary Experience’ in Madrid
During the morning you will have your intensive Spanish course and from 2:00pm we will tour Madrid’s most emblematic and literary neighborhoods, theaters, and museums which represent the Spanish Golden Age.
These are some examples:
Madrid’s public theater is one of the oldest in the world with more than 400 years of history, which has continuously remained open except during fires or renovations.
In its origins it was conceived to feature comedic performances but nowadays, in its halls (the main hall has 740 seats and another smaller one has 110 seats), all kinds of productions of the Spanish scene are shown. In addition, it has other spaces such as an exhibition hall and other types of original rooms of the building open to the public such as a tea room, a library, and the ‘Tirso de Molina’ hall.
The building is a stunning sight from ‘Plaza Santa Ana’. One of Madrid’s jewels.
‘Lope de Vega House Museum’
Being able to enter what was the home of one of the most famous writers of Spanish literature is an experience which you cannot miss. Lope Félix de Vega Carpio lived his last twenty-five years in that emblematic house, now used as a museum. You can see the writer’s original furniture and possessions and also, if you visit in the summer, you can attend one of the many theatrical performances that are organized in the rooms of the house.
‘Las Letras’ neighborhood
An absolute must during your stay in Madrid. Culture, history and architecture which transform the walk through its streets to a trip to the Golden Age. Discover where important authors such as Cervantes, Quevedo, Góngora, and Lope de Vega walked or lived. And of course, while at the same time enjoying a variety of ‘tapas’ in the ‘bodegas’ or going shopping in its typical shops which still preserve the charm of another era.
Visit the wonderful ‘National Library of Spain’ which receives and preserves copies of all books published in Spain In addition, it has a valuable collection of historical treasures such as manuscripts, prints, drawings, photographs, tape recordings, musical scores etc…
Get together with your teacher to chat in an old café in Madrid called “El Café Gijón” …
