This small city in the heart of Spain oozes history and culture, from the 16th century buildings that house noted Universidad de Alcalá to the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes, who penned Don Quixote. With small classes, a local family host, and plenty of peer interaction, your already strong Spanish skills will further progress as the weeks fly by. Though there's much to explore right here, the capitol city of Madrid is 35-minutes away by train.
