The Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens, bequeathed to the city during the Muslim period of the south of Spain, are some of the most beautiful monuments in the world. Later the Renaissance left its mark with the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel, La Cartuja and numerous churches and palaces.

The Albayzín, the oldest quarter of Granada, spreads over the hill opposite the Alhambra. Narrow, paved streets rise and fall, leading to small squares, white houses with patios or gardens, to cisterns, or to a vantage viewpoint of the Alhambra. The caves of Sacromonte, inhabited by gypsies, are the centre of Flamenco, and the Realejo the old Jewish quarter.

With its 280.000 inhabitants Granada is the seat of one of the most important universities in Spain, founded by Charles V in 1526. Around 60.000 university students make an exciting contribution to the city, especially to its night-life. Don't forget that tapas in Granada are served free with a glass of beer, wine or soft drink.

Granada has an ideal geographical location. One may contemplate the snow-covered summits of Sierra Nevada (the sky resort of Pradollano is just 33 km. from Granada), wander the footpaths of the Alpujarras, go to the cave-houses of Guadix, pay a visit to Sevilla or Córdoba, or enjoy Granada's Costa Tropical (70 km away).

The school is situated in the heart of Granada, very close to the Cathedral, beside Plaza Nueva, at the foot of the Albaycín.
