Cultural and immersion activities

Get to know the city of Granada

To get a general idea of the city, and learn how to get around it, our teachers offer visits to the main neighborhoods of Granada during their first days of stay. They have been able to know the most important areas:

  • The center of Granada. The Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, and the Alcaicería, are part of the heritage of this city.
  • The Albaicín neighborhood and its famous San Nicolás viewpoint offer impressive views of the Alhambra and the sunset.
  • Realejo neighborhood and graffiti route. Granada has one of the most recognized graffiti artists in the country, El Niño de las Pinturas.

Flamenco dance workshop

Granada is a city with a flamenco tradition, in dance and song. And we can’t let the students walk away without experiencing this very important part. So we took them to a flamenco dance workshop!

Visit to the Carmen de Los Mártires
El Carmen de Los Mártires is a famous Carmen and garden located in the city of Granada. Visiting it is important to know the secular history of the Carmens, and also to enjoy a magnificent palace and gardens with extraordinary panoramic views of Sierra Nevada, La Vega and Granada. 

Visit to the Alhambra and the Generalife

Among the planned activities was, of course, a visit to the Alhambra and El Generalife, emblems of Granada’s culture. It is the Granada monument par excellence, and the second most visited in Spain.

Route through the Sacromonte neighborhood and flamenco show

Taking advantage of the visit to the Sacromonte neighborhood, the students attended a flamenco show at the Zambra María La Canastera. El Sacromonte is a gypsy neighborhood with a flamenco tradition. Its history is fascinating, thanks to a mix that is reminiscent of multicultural origins. In fact, a part of the Jews and Moors expelled by the Catholic Monarchs settled here.
