About the City

Granada

From the majestic courtyards and mosaics of the Alhambra to the lush gardens of the Palacio del Generalife, Granada’s cultural, artistic, and historic heritage has been shaped by centuries of diverse influences. Today, Granada´s culture reflects its Christian, Arabic, Romani, and Jewish roots in a model of mutually respectful, multicultural living. Often described as a fairytale city, Granada offers one of the most prestigious universities in Europe, a contrasting mix of tradition and modernity, vibrant nightlife, and countless cultural and recreational activities. The city is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, just 44 miles from the warm waters of the Mediterranean. CEA Granada integrates local resources and cross-cultural learning, helping you engage and immerse with the host culture while experiencing aspects of local life that most visitors to this welcoming city don’t see.

Local Highlights

Free Tapas

Granada is the capital of free tapas. These tasty appetizer-sized eats are served everywhere with each drink. Get ready for some tasty bites as you follow one of the city’s many tapas routes.


Flamenco

Granada is one of the main centers for flamenco in Spain, especially in the Romani district of Sacromonte, where the Roma settled in the 15th century. Many flamenco shows are performed in the zambras, or caves carved in the mountain, making them unique in the world.


Arab Heritage

Journey through the daily life of an Arab city by bargaining in a shop in the Calderería or Alcaicería quarters, tasting delicious tea and pastries, or enjoying traditional Arabic bathing rituals at one of Granada’s many hammans.


Sierra Nevada Natural Park

The ski resort of Sierra Nevada, Spain’s highest mountain range, is just half an hour from Granada. A paradise for mountain sports, the resort offers over 62 miles of slopes and more sunny days per year than any other European ski destination. It is the perfect place to practice all your favorite winter sports, including beautiful routes for walking, hiking, and trekking.


Beaches

Enjoy beautiful Mediterranean beaches, easily accessible through public transportation. Bus rides take about an hour and cost about $13 round trip. The region gets more than 300 days of sun per year, so take advantage of the amazing weather!

An Interesting Cultural Perspective  
Not only is Granada a smaller, centralized college town (you can walk everywhere!), it also provides a very interesting cultural perspective. Granada does not give you exposure to only Spanish culture, but also the Arabic culture that is so prominent in the city.
