School: Location

EUREKA is a school whose sole objective is teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Since 1988 thousands of students have studied at our school. We offer a relaxed and warm atmosphere where the students can enjoy and learn one of the most important language in the world.


EUREKA is located in a 150-year-old building, on a floor which has been completely refurbished and renovated by the school. It is less than 50 metres from the centre of the city, La Puerta del Sol.


Located nearby are the city's major museums (El Museo del Prado, El Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, El Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza), landmarks (El Palacio Real, El Parlamento, El Teatro Real, La Plaza Mayor), convents (Las Descalzas Reales and La Encarnación), and monuments (La Cibeles, La Puerta de Alcalá).



Madrid - the business, governmental, cultural and entertainment centre of Spain - is a modern, cosmopolitan and hospitable city that welcomes all its visitors, regardless of nationality and occupation.

All the central government operations are located in this capital city, as well as the leading political institutions and the country's main economic and financial centres. The major world banks and national and global companies also have headquarters in Madrid.


Visitors will enjoy life in Madrid, which is lively not only during the day. Madrid is known for its exciting and charming nightlife, often referred to as "La Movida Madrileña", or the Madrid Scene. In addition to more traditional entertainment, there are many clubs and discotheques for all tastes from salsa to jazz, as well as pubs, cafes, casinos, and flamenco dancing.

Madrid's cuisine is one of the city's main pleasures and a must for visitors. There is a wide variety to suit every taste and budget, and restaurants range from those serving international fare to "tascas", or snack bars, which offer the opportunity to try all sorts of "raciones", or portions, of typical Spanish food.


The opportunity to participate in sports is unlimited in Madrid - from jogging in El Parque del Retiro to mountain biking in the Casa de Campo. There are many sports facilities including swimming pools, soccer fields, tennis courts, golf courses and athletic stadiums. And the nearby mountains offer horseback riding, as well as skiing in the winter.
