The lake at Retiro Park in Madrid
Classes are held in Madrid, the capital and largest city in Spain. The city has a population of about 3.3 million, and about 6.3 million people live in the Madrid metropolitan area. Despite its size, Madrid is an extremely accessible city with a wonderful mass transportation system and a very low rate of violent crime.
The climate during the month of June is usually wonderful. The average high temperature in June is about 80 degrees, the daily mean temperature is about 70, and the average low temperature is about 60. There is usually plenty of sunshine in June, which means that the people of Madrid are out walking, biking, drinking wine at sidewalk cafes, or even renting rowboats at Retiro Park.
