In 1994, the Spanish Princess Dona Elena officially inaugurated the Instituto Cervantes in Manila. Today, with the opening of the new headquarters in Madrid, it confirms Spain's mission to strengthen its cultural presence in Southeast Asia.
In 2006, the Secretary of State for International Cooperation, Ms.Leire Pajín, presided the presentation of the new office that houses the Instituto Cervantes in Manila, a newly constructed building with a modern architectural design of 1,800 square metres with nine classrooms, a library, an auditorium and exhibition hall. The center can be found at 855 Kalaw street in the historic district of Ermita.
In the past academic year, 6,148 enrollees were registered to Instituto Cervantes in 263 courses to learn the Spanish language in Manila. Aside from our academic courses, Instituto Cervantes also promotes the dissemination of the Spanish and Latin American cultures through numerous activities and events.
