Wall, palace and Spanish school in Valencia. Welcome to Españolé.
Housed in a completely restored old palace, our Spanish school in Valencia, Españolé, preserves the charm of its historical past in modern fully equipped facilities so that you can enjoy every moment with us..
Discover the school!
The interior of Españolé houses some of the best preserved remains of the old Arab wall that surrounded the city in the 11th century: part of the Puerta de la Culebra, which was believed to have disappeared, was recovered and integrated into the building along with arches and fragments of the defensive canvas.
Our school was originally a Gothic palace from the end of the 13th century, which over the years has undergone successive restorations and renovations to its current state. We can still enjoy the central patio, the arches and stairs and in the office area, a beautifully polychrome coffered ceiling more than 7 centuries old.
Today, our students live in Españolé with fragments of the history of Valencia and enjoy a unique space where laughter, enthusiasm and desire to learn are shared. Our school is a meeting place between different cultures and a welcoming space that our students feel as their own.
The ancient remains of the Arab wall run through the school and coexist with classrooms and new spaces specially designed according to our vision of what a language school should be like in the 21st century: a combination of history and modernity.
Designed to make the most of your classes, our classrooms are fully equipped with everything you need for your learning. They are spacious and bright so that each student has a comfortable work space.
