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.
Our teacher and guide Nizar Liemlahi will accompany you during the whole week. In the afternoons you will visit the Alhambra, the old Arabic quarter Albaicín and the Arabic bath. He will complement the guided visits with workshops about Arabic art, music and cooking.
