API students participate in excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API Seville programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.

  • Cádiz

    Cádiz has over 3000 years of history and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba. A walk around the city center is a joy to the senses with the sea, the streets, the Cathedral dome and the colorful houses along the coast.

  • Ronda

    Ronda is a charming town located in the mountainous Málaga region of Spain, known for its unique cliffside location and famous bridges offering spectacular views.

  • Extremadura

    Several towns are “musts” in this region. First is Mérida, home of the largest number of Roman ruins outside of Italy, as well as a Museum of Roman Art, an amphitheater and aqueducts. Second is Cáceres, a Medieval and Renaissance city with walls that were built by the Romans and Almohads. The third is Trujillo, the cradle of more than 500 conquerors. Walking through this city will offer the opportunity to see many historical monuments and the Moorish castle. The mountain-town within the region of Las Villuercas leads to the historic village of Guadalupe, home of the Sanctuary-Monastery of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Granada

    Granada is one of the most enchanting cities in Spain. With more than a thousand years of recorded history, Granada enjoys one of Spain’s most important cultural and architectural patrimonies. Important sites in Granada include the Alhambra and the historical Moorish Albaicín quarter, both designated as World Heritage sites by the UNESCO.

  • Lisbon

    We will visit Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, and the best showcase of Portuguese culture. Together, the group will discover the city visiting the most iconic places and neighborhoods, enjoy breath-taking views from the beautiful viewpoints and visit the 15th-century monastery, standing witness of the glorious past of this country.

  • Madrid

    Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage. Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

  • Toledo

    Toledo, located south of Madrid, was declared ‘City of Mankind’s Heritage’ by UNESCO in 1986. It was capital of Spain from mid-6th to the mid-16th centuries, as evidenced by its impressive medieval architecture. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” it served as a hub for Jews, Moors and Christians and has today become a symbol of religious tolerance. Walking through Toledo is like taking a magic journey into the past.

  • Puerto Santa Maria

    El Puerto de Santa María is one of the most well-known towns in the Cádiz province due to its beautiful beaches, wonderful food and plentiful wineries. The wine produced in this location (typical of the Jerez area) is an important part of Spanish culture.

  • Cádiz

    Cádiz has over 3000 years of history and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba.

  • Barcelona

    Barcelona is home to a remarkable cultural energy, unique cuisine and fiercely individual spirit. The glorious modernist architecture (Art Nouveau) studs the city streets and avenues, and is mainly represented by the various works by Antoni Gaudí including the Sagrada Familia Church. The city also boasts an artistic legacy, from important Romanesque and Gothic works to major galleries.

  • Grazalema

    Grazalema (Cádiz province) is one of Spain’s most stunning natural parks. In 1977 this area was declared a “Reserve of the Biosphere” by UNESCO due to the exceptional variety and wealth of its fauna and flora. It consists of a massif karstic limestone with closed river basins, headstreams of the Guadalete and Majacete’s Rivers and tributaries of the Guadiaro. It also comprises a mountain lagoon called ‘Laguna del Perezoso’. The park status envelopes several beautiful towns and villages; Grazalema, El Bosque, Ubrique, Zahara de la Sierra, Benaocaz, Benamahoma, Prado del Rey, and Villaluenga del Rosario are within the Cadiz side of the park.

  • Madrid

    Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage.

API students in Seville can choose from two different housing options – students may choose to live with a host family or in a residencia. Internet access is included in both options.

Students who choose to live with families share a double room with a fellow API student and are provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee.

Students in Seville may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are usually small, family-run student residences that house international students and occasionally Spanish students. Traditionally 1-2 students share a bedroom, and a bathroom is shared by multiple students. All students have access to living, TV, and common areas. Residencias are generally co-ed and accommodate 2-30 students. Students are provided with three meals per day. Single rooms may be available for an additional fee.
