Program Description:
Granada, in the south of Spain, has captivated poets, musicians and travelers from all around the globe with its beauty, its light and its contrasts. The city combines its historic roots with the young lifestyle of nearly seventy thousand university students. The city is exceptionally well situated, close to Sierra Nevada (where one can ski between November and April) and barely an hour from the sea. The city offers countless options for an intensive cultural experience.

The school, Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas, is in the Albaicín, the historic neighborhood of Granada. It is universally known for its charm, history and architecture. From the classrooms and terraces you will be able to enjoy impressive views of the Alhambra. A few steps from the school lies the Sacromonte neighborhood, a lush valley sprinkled with caves, cradle of flamenco in Granada.
