Spanish immersion course in Galicia

Are you looking to live a once in a life time experience? 

Come and learn Spanish in Muxía, Galicia. 

Enjoy and practice Spanish in the most beautiful environment. 

Muxía

Before we start, let me introduce Muxía, the small town where I live and where this course takes place. Located at the end of the Camino, it’s the perfect location to rest, relax and enjoy. 

If you fancy hikes, sunsets and the sea, this is your place!

Hikes. You will find plenty of trails to small beaches, charming villages and peaceful forests. The most popular one is, of course, the Camino de Santiago. But there are many others. One of the most interesting ones is called the Lightouse trail which connects ancient and modern lighthouses through the coast.

Sunsets. We are right by the western-most point of Europe, the last land where the sun kisses the Earth during summer.  Seeing the sun set into the ocean is truely special and, in this wonderful natural surrounding, it’s an experience you cannot miss!

The sea, of course, as we are surrounded by it. Muxia’s history is closely related to the sea, as it lived off fishing for many years. These coast is wild and untamed to this day. In fact, it is known as Costa da Morte (Death’s coast) due to the high number of shipwrecks which have taken place here.

As you can imagine, the energy in this town is magical. And I’m not alone in thinking this. Hundreds of pilgrims visit this town to seek for spiritual peace and to discover the Santuario de la Virgen de la Barca, asacred sanctuary where sacred rocks have been venerated since ancient times. It is also here that Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to Saint James on his  journey.
