April was a full month for our school IMSOL, as we welcomed another group from Brazil. The students came from Salvador and stayed in Granada for a week, in order to taste the different language, culture and, of course, food of Spain!
Along with the courses that they had every morning, IMSOL gave them the opportunity to enjoy other activities too during the afternoons.
Given that Granada offers you a great variety of things to do and enjoy, it’s up to you to take advantage as many as you can.
Visit at the centre and the Realejo neighbourhood
On Tuesday, we welcomed our group with a stroll in the centre of the city, taking a look at the best spots and the places with a greater historical and cultural importance.
After that, a passing through the Realejo neighbourhood couldn’t be left out. This part of the city, where the old Jewish community lived, is maybe one of the most beautiful areas in Granada.
Visit at Albaicin
This breathtaking place, only a few minutes away from the city centre, can travel you back in time and offer you the best of the views.
One of the most romantic spots in whole Europe, as it is said, is located in the heart of Albaicin. The Mirador de San Nicolas is the viewpoint with the best view, giving you a total sight of the Alhambra.
The next day we had a cultural workshop about the Moors in Andalusia in our school. We accompanied this activity with a visit to the Cuarto Real of Santo Domingo, the transformed from the Christians Moorish palace.
At night we visited a tapas bar and tasted the traditional tapas of the region of Granada.
Visita a la Cathedral
Our group also had the opportunity to see the cathedral of the city and the Capilla Real, the chapel where Isabel and Fernando are buried.
At night they enjoyed a flamenco spectacle in the heart of Sacromonte, the former gipsies’ neighbourhood, where flamenco is a way of life.
Visit at Alhambra
In their program there was of course a visit to Alhambra, where anyone notes the fusion between art and culture.
The landmark of Granada, the Alhambra and the Generalife, are a must see when visiting the city, as they offer you a clear image of the Moorish period and immerses you straight away in the past.
On Sunday we said goodbye to our friends from Brazil!
We had a wonderful time with you and we expect to see you soon!
¡Hasta la próxima!
