Excursion to Granada
We will meet at the School's Residence in San Juan Street from where will depart to board a coach that will take us to Granada.
In Granada we will visit the immense palace-fortress known as the Alhambra, which is inscribed in the World Heritage list, not only for its beauty, but also because it reflects an important period of Spanish history, the Arab era. We will visit the three sections of the Alhambra: the military section or Alcazaba, the luxurious Palacios Nazaríes (Nasrid Palaces), and we will also enjoy the gardens of the Generalife, where the murmur of the water and the freshness and fragrance of the plants will prepare us for the rest of our visit.
Next, to a district that forms part of the historical make-up of the Arab era: the famous Albaicín district which is characterised by its typical houses called Carmens and by the typical representative image of Granada: the spectacular view of the Alhambra from the mirador de San Nicolás (Saint Nicholas viewpoint), with the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada.
Later, we will visit the historical centre of the city, where we will find the impressive Cathedral which is considered to be the first Renaissance church in Spain. Next to the Cathedral we will see the Alcaicería, a typical Jewish market with narrow streets which will complete our impression of the influences left in the city by the three different cultures: Christian, Arab and Jewish.
Approximate duration of trip: 10 hours
