Where?

Ferrol

The internships we offer you take place in the city of Ferrol. This city is in the northwest of Coruña province being it’s second most populated area (over 110K inhabitants within it’s metropolitan area). The first is  A Coruña (50km far from Ferrol). Santiago de Compostela, the famous pilgrimage destination, is one hour ride from Ferrol.

Coruña province is in the northwest of Galicia, a region above Portugal and… guess where? in the northwest of Spain. Galicia is populated by 2.7M people and is considered an “historical territory” due to its own unique language (Galician), geography, climate and cultural personality.

If Galicia is greener and fresher than the South of Spain, it also offers the wildest and the most beautiful beaches of the country … a paradise for surfers! The city centre of Ferrol by itself is also worth being seen as many of its buildings constitute a unique heritage of the Enlightenment and the Modernist wave. The city is also very active on the cultural level, especially with its Route of the Meninas of street-art, it’s famous Holy Week and all the cultural events organized in places like the Jofre theatre.

Last but not least, the port of Ferrol is also the starting point of the English Way to Santiago de Compostela. Hence if you are also looking for physical challenges, more connection with nature or more time for self-reflection, Ferrol is waiting for you!
