Spain and the Cities
Let's talk about Spain
Famous for the sun-soaked sand of its many beaches and the golden glow of its warm city streets. Famous for the different cultures that change from region to region, or the rich variety of art that hangs in its many galleries. Famous for its snow-topped mountains and high plains. Famous for many things to many people – at IE Business School you can discover what Spain means to you.
Madrid is the capital of the country and it lies nestled in its heart. It’s an easily-accessible, cosmopolitan city with a rich, distinctly Spanish culture at its core. This is a city you can easily fall in love with.

In Segovia you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to monuments. This small yet vivacious city isn’t far from Madrid, so you’re always close enough to take part of the buzz – yet a world away when you want to be. With many beautiful parks and gardens, you can lap up the sunshine on bright days – but don’t worry! When it does rain, there are many museums to stay dry in.
UNESCO World Heritage Site
With its stunning Roman aqueduct and Gothic cathedral, it’s no wonder Segovia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Starting as a Roman Fort, the Alcázar rises out of a rocky crag and is one of the most distinctive castles in Spain. Take a walk around and experience the residence of the monarchs of Castile in the Middle Ages.
Bars and Tapas
Segovia is an old city with a young spirit. This gives life to the multitude of bars and cafés in the city where you can hang out, relax, and enjoy the tapas.
