Taronja

The language school Taronja was founded in Valencia, Spain in 2004. TARONJA is a unique Boutique School located in a privileged street right in the very heart of Valencia city, Spain. The school is situated in a truly beautiful building near the City Hall and the Bullring, surrounded by all kinds of shops, cinemas and restaurants... It's in a pedestrian area, so there is no traffic noise. Inside the school, each room has been decorated by a different Valencian artist, turning the school itself into a work of art: The Kitsch room, Dr.Loco room, the Hippie room, the Chill Out room, Cooking room and more… No other school can compare to TARONJA!

The school address is: Convento Santa Clara 10 - 1ºA, 46002 - Valencia (Spain).
