ASU MADRID 2013‎ > ‎


Madrid is the home base for the program and students are encouraged to explore Spain's capital city on their own. Madrid's subway system has recently been renovated and metro passes will allow students to traverse the city quickly, easily, and safely.

Most class activities will take place before lunch, which Madrilineans (or Madrileños) eat around 2 p.m. Afternoons and evenings will generally be free for students to socialize at a neighborhood café, shop, relax in the gorgeous Buen Retiro park in the center of the city (pictured on the left), or work on discovering their favorite Spanish food from a huge array of possibilities that includes paella, churros, chorizo, tortilla española, gazpacho, and tapas.
