The ninth European School on Molecular Nanoscience (ESMolNa2016) will take place in Tordesillas, a town in the province of Valladolid, Castile and León, central Spain. It is located 25 km southwest of the provincial capital, Valladolid at an elevation of 704 meters and 198 km northeast of Madrid.

The School will take place on the historic Treaty House where the Catholic Monarchs signed the Treaty of Tordesillas with the Portuguese crown in 1494, which established the line dividing the globe between Spain and Portugal for colonization purposes. This especially affected the Portuguese and Spanish colonization of the Americas, and placed the name Tordesillas in history worldwide ever since.
