The Royal College of St. Alban, Valladolid was founded in 1589 for the training of Catholic priests for the English and Welsh Mission.

Candidates for the Priesthood live in a community environment and are exposed to spiritual-human formation. This training prepares them for seminary formation and roots their faith in Jesus Christ.

Valladolid is the ancient Spanish Capital of Old Castile in the heart of the country. Columbas and Cervantes lived in the city.

The region, rich in culture and history, is also the spiritual home of Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross.

The college, as well as hosting numerous cultural events, is ideally suited to experience the past and become immersed in the present, to see something of the wider Church, a Church which is in every sense "Catholic".



Prayer to Our Lady
May Our Lady Vulnerata and

all our Martyr Saints

intercede for us with the Lord,

that our students and benefactors,

past and present,

may be helped and saved

by Him.
