DESCRIPTION

 

 

Institutional history

 

For almost four hundred years the Royal Scots College in Spain has been receiving men from Scotland, training them to serve as priests and then sending them back to serve in dioceses and parishes the length and breadth of Scotland.

Founded in Madrid in 1627, the College moved to the more northern Spanish city of Valladolid in 1771 and finally, in 1988, moved to the university city of Salamanca, where it has remained ever since.
