Visitors in Burgos are free to participate in a wide range of activities. Some of them are recommended to the students according to their preferences, the kind of groups and the weather. Most of them are running by teachers from the school.
We also give personal advise to those students who want to perform activities on their own.
It is advisable to get before coming to Spain: the European Youth card, in order to visit some tourist sites for free or to take advantage of some discounts.
For the whole weekend (including night out) or only for one day out, the School organize trips to nearby tourist and cultural interesting places. For example: Santander beach, Asturias mountains, Salamanca, wine route in Aranda de Duero, villages of the province of Burgos, Madrid … etc.
