Granada city, Andalusia

A Spanish course in Spain: Learn Spanish in Granada, one of the most beautiful university cities in southern Spain.

Blanco, verde y rojo
«Hay en el paisaje de Granada un diálogo de blancos, verdes y rojos. La mirada del viajero quedará polarizada, si la estación lo permite, por la nieve de Sierra Nevada y en la cercanía, siempre, por el blanco más compartimentado de las geometrías del Albaicín. Los verdes llegan unas veces en ángulo rasante desde los regadíos y las choperas de la vega; otra, desde las hileras de olivos de los secanos; otras, desde los encinares residuales o desde el artificio romántico de los bosques de la Alhambra. En otras ocasiones, en fin, la percepción se satura con los rojos encendidos del atardecer y de su reflejo en las colinas y en las torres - ambas bermejas - de la Alhambra»
Francisco Ortega Alba

Granada, the birthplace of the poet Federico García Lorca, is without a doubt one of the most fascinating cities in southern Spain. It is also an important University town with almost 300,000 inhabitants and more than 60,000 students. With its world-famous Alhambra, rich culture and lively nightlife, it is the ideal place for both studying and taking a holiday. Enjoy a weekend on the Mediterranean coast; participate in winter sports, horse-riding or trekking in the Sierra Nevada; organise a trip to the marvellous villages of the Alpujarra mountains; watch gypsy flamenco in Sacromonte or dance salsa and tango in one of Granada's many exciting bars; visit the Arabic baths; stroll through the narrow streets of the old Moorish quarter, Albaicín: these are just a few of the many possibilities. At the end of the day, enjoy a glass of red wine with a tapa in one of the small squares looking over the Alhambra and the beautiful snow-covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
A tapa is a type of appetizer which is served when you order a drink. Serving tapas to customers is a typical Spanish tradition preserved through the whole of Spain. In some cities, such as Granada, the tapas are free. They can vary from just a few peanuts or a small dish of olives, to almost a mini meal in itself. One of the most enjoyable pleasures of the Spanish culture, is to go out with your friends for tapas. You usually only stay in each tapas bar for one or two drinks, so that you can go to a series of different bars in one evening. In some tapas bars you can choose your tapa, whereas in others, there is a set list of tapas that you get according to the type which is being served.
