Summer Abroad Spain - On Site

The History of Cancer


You will be staying in double rooms in university-style dorms. More details on amenities will be provided closer to program dates. Self-service laundry, internet and other amenities are readily available onsite.

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.


At least two group meals will be included with the program. Day-to-day, you can prepare simple meals in your dorm kitchen, or find other options for meals in town. Basque Country is known for some of the best food in Spain. Many locations in the area also serve free or very affordable “pintxos” (Basque version of tapas).

Excursions and Day Trips

Tentative excursions and activities include:

  • Basque Museum of the History of Medicine and Science
  • Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao
  • And more!

Please note: These activities and excursions are tentative and subject to change.

From Lonely Planet Spain: “Framed by golden beaches and lush hillsides, San Sebastián has undeniable allure, from its venerable dining scene to its grand architecture and packed cultural calendar.”

From Lonely Planet Spain: “Staggering architecture, a venerable dining scene and stunning landscapes just outside the city centre: Bilbao is one of the great treasures of the Basque Country.”
