Learning Spanish in Olivenza is a unique experience.
Among the beautiful oak pastures there is Olivenza a city whose history goes back to the times of the Order of Templars. It was the Order of the Templars that gave the character of the village, establishing it in the 13th century. In the following centuries, the kingdoms of Portugal and Spain clashed with each other fighting for domination over the area. Despite the fact that initially it was the Spanish village with time Portugal gave its privileges and fortified. A fortified stronghold that has survived until today. For this reason, cobbled streets and squares with white houses are decorated with ceramic tiles with inscriptions in Spanish and Portuguese.
