Chester College International School is located in Teo, 3 km. away from the center of Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the region of Galicia, in NorthWest Spain.
Designated “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO in 1985, it is one of Spain’s most remarkable cities, containing old quarters, churches, convent buildings, a university and an air at once ancient, solemn, lively and modern.
The city’s Cathedral is the destination today, as it has been throughout history, of the 9th century medieval pilgrimage route, the Way of St. James or Camino de Santiago.
The University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) was founded in 1495 and it has over 25 000 enrolled students.
Santiago de Compostela has a population of about 100,000 inhabitants and an international airport, with direct flights (some of them daily) to Amsterdam, Basel, Bergamo, Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt (Main and Hahn), Geneva, London (Gatwick and Stansted), Milano, Paris, Rome and Zurich (as of November 2019). Two other airports in the area are A Coruña and Vigo.
