The culture of Al-Andalus in Granada

We offer a special programme related to Arabic history, art and culture in Granada!

Granada exudes a mystical sense of beauty that not many Spanish cities can compare to. The city is very elegantly poised with Arabic-influenced architecture, gypsy-inhabited caves and Iberian culture.


As the last city to be returned to the Christian conquistadors after several hundred centuries of Muslim ruling, Granada still bears evidence to its Arabic influence to this day. The Alhambra Palace was built during the Moorish reign in the 15th century, and still stands proud and majestic on the hills of Granada.


Other signs of Arabic influence can be seen in the Albaicín, one of the oldest areas in Granada. Perched on a hilltop it consists of steep cobblestoned paths and white-washed houses. Arabic teahouses and Moroccan shops line the narrow street that leads up to the hilltop. The perfect way to relax after a day, is to have a glass of sweet tea in one of the Arabic teahouses (teterías) or relax in the Arabic baths.


In the afternoons you will visit the Alhambra, the old Arabic quarter Albaicín and the Arabic bath. You will complement the visits with workshops about calligraphy and cooking.
