Spanish vocabulary: Places and buildings

Hello there! Welcome once again to our Spanish Vocabulary section. Today we are learning something you will need for sure when studying Spanish in Quito, Cusco o Sucre. After your Spanish lessons, you will be moving around the city. Whether for shopping, going out with your friends or visiting some important historic sites, you will need to locate yourself in the city and name the buildings and places around.

To give you a hand, we have prepared this Spanish Vocabulary lesson: places and buildings. Don’t forget to check our previous one: Computer parts (hardware) and the Internet!
