Abadía de los Templarios – La Alberca
La Alberca is situated in the south-west corner of the Castile and Leon region. The venue is sitauted just outside the town, well known for its traditions and customs that date back to the 15th Century. Surrounded by four mountain ranges; the Sierra de Bejar from the east, La Peña de Francia from the west, and both the Sierra de Francia and the Sierra de Kilama to the north.
The venue we commonly refer to as “La Alberca” takes place in the Hotel Abadia de los Templarios, which is a four-star modern rural complex. Participants at La Alberca can enjoy the convenience of two-bedroom chalets – a student upstairs a volunteer downstairs. The chalets are circled around the main dining and meeting room, and a pool available in the summer months.

During the summer Salamanca is beautiful. Warm and sunny skies see temperatures ranging from 17°C – 35°C (62°F – 95°F). During fall and winter months Salamanca can get quite breezy and rain showers are common, not to mention the possibility of a dusting of snow if cold fronts hits just right. An umbrella and warm jacket are essential items during this time when temperatures range from around 0°C (32°F) during the night to 14°C (57°F) during the daytime.
This venue offers the chance to enjoy the nearby village during the week. Be aware that this site is quite hilly as the hotel is situated in the mountains. You’ll be exercising more than just your vocal chords!
