Welcome to

Richmond Summer in Seville

Program Overview

Make the most of your summer and take your academics and Spanish fluency to the next level by immersing yourself in the culture, language, and way of life of Seville. Seville is the capital of Andalusia, one of the most visited, culturally vibrant and historically significant regions of Spain. Seville is perhaps best known for being one of the most important Moorish kingdoms of the Middle Ages and the center of trade with the New World during the colonial era. In addition, many of the typically “Spanish” cultural phenomena that attract tourists (flamenco, bullfighting, tapas and olive orchards) are identified with this Southern city. With over one million inhabitants, the capital city has a lot to offer, without feeling congested or overwhelming like many large cities.
