On behalf of the inlingua Granada team, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this wonderful city. We are firm believers that Granada is the perfect location to learn Spanish.
Granada is the capital of the province of Granada in the autonomous community of Andalucía, in the south of Spain. Located in the heart of Andalucía, with its backdrop of the impressive Sierra Nevada mountains and the majestic Alhambra palace, its grand university and its stunning architecture, it is no wonder that Granada has provided inspiration for great artists, writers and thinkers throughout history. Through its fragrant spices and 14th-century buildings, soaring cathedrals and colorful flamenco dresses, you can experience the city’s heady mix of Arabic and Spanish cultures. That is to say nothing of the charming narrow streets, delicious cuisine, famed tapas, and bazaars selling aromatic teas, carpets, ceramics and more.
Granada is a city that receives many visitors, both domestic and international, thanks to its extensive artistic and monumental, cultural and ethnological heritage, including its Spring Festival (Easter and Corpus Christi). There is also a major sports tourism as a result of the existence of a major ski resort in Pradollano (Sierra Nevada). The most visited heritage site, and in turn the most visited in Spain, is the Alhambra and its surroundings, also highlighting the Albaicín and Sacromonte. There is a significant flow of travelers, especially students from all corners of Andalusia, who come to visit the Science Park of Granada as the only one of its existing style in the autonomous region.
Throughout the year cultural events of all kinds are organized throughout the city.
Granada has a wide range of museums, varied selection and quality, where collections of great artistic, ethnological and cultural interest are discussed. The Archaeological and Ethnological Museum of Granada, the Museum of Fine Arts in Granada, Centro José Guerrero, the Memory Museum of Andalusia and the House Museum of Federico Garcia Lorca are some of the best cultural events.
Gastronomy of Granada is framed within the Andalusian cuisine and you can tell it has a wide and rich cuisine, achieved by the contribution over time by all its inhabitants.
