API: Spain, Girona
The University de Girona (UdG) is a young and interdisciplinary public university. It is devoted to excellence in teaching and research and to participating in the progress and development of society through the creation, transmission, diffusion and criticism of knowledge related to the sciences, technology, the humanities, the social sciences and the arts. The Study Abroad courses take place at the Faculty of Arts, located in the old town of the city. The university is deeply rooted in Catalonia and Catalan culture and is one of the primary economic and cultural motors of the region.
Girona is located in northeastern Spain, within one hour of Barcelona, the Costa Brava’s amazing beaches, the Pyrenees or France. Founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, its exceptional old town hosts one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe, framed in a monumental ensemble of temples, towers, houses and walls along the River Onyar. Its wealth in medieval times produced many fine Romanesque and Gothic buildings that have survived repeated attacks and sieges through the centuries. Girona’s old town, narrow alleys and fascinating medieval stairs appear around every corner making it one of Spain’s hidden jewels.
