Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, this enchanting capital city of the region of Andalucía has become one of the most popular study abroad destinations for American students.  Veritas is a division of  International Studies Abroad (ISA).  You will be attending classes with ISA students as well as Veritas students.
