Founded by the Muslims in 711, Granada has become one of the most visited Andalusian capitals thanks to its sheer beauty and rich cultural heritage. Offering great architectural richness, cultural diversity and an incredible atmosphere, Granada is a truly unforgettable city.
When night falls Granada turns into a warm and dazzling city. Every night, young people meet on top of the city walls, looking over Granada and the Alhambra, to play guitar and sing flamenco. Such a magic feeling arises from these impromptu fiestas!
- It is impossible to talk about Granada without mentioning its pearl: the Alhambra. You will never forget the momentous image of the Alhambra set against the mountainous background of the Sierra Nevada. A true wonder of the world.
- The magic of the city, sung by hundreds of writers and poets from time immemorial, will seduce you to strolls through its ancient, historic quarters – like the “Albaicín” or the “Sacromonte” – and encounter quaint squares, gorgeous landscapes and wonderful people.
- In Spring and in Summer, Granada hosts countless festivals. The ceremonies, Easter processions and “corridas” at “Corpus Christi” are famous. In May, there is the International Theatre festival; in June, the International Music and Dance Festival.
At Academia Contacto we open our door for you to share our love for Granada and Spanish culture. Come and we promise that you will be far from disappointed!
