School Trips to Granada

Set against the stunning backdrop of Sierra Nevada, Granada is a beautiful city steeped in history with a mix of traditional whitewashed houses and both Islamic and Catholic architecture. No school trip to Granada would be complete without an excursion to the majestic Moorish Alhambra Palace, one of most spectacular Islamic structures in Europe. There are plenty of highlights to enjoy whilst in Granada such as Generalife or take a stroll through the Albaicin (Granada’s old Muslim quarter). Students can also watch an authentic Flamenco performance and practice their Spanish language skills by asking for some mouth-watering tapas.

Granada is a great alternative to Madrid or Barcelona for a Spanish Language trip. Granada offers an alluring charm, with a majestic collection of different architectural types, fantastic food, friendly hospitality and its own UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Alhambra Palace.

Why choose Granada?

  • Explore beautiful cobbled lanes, flower-covered houses and secret little plazas
  • Visit the '‘'Prettiest Street in Granada'’'
  • Generous Tapas portions
  • Abadía del Sacromonte - Granada's beautiful 17th-century abbey

Alhambra Palace & Generalife

Science Museum

Parque de las Ciencias is an interactive museum spanning over 70000m2, just a few minutes on foot from the historic centre. There are a wide variety of exhibitions to choose from including: the human body, risk perception, innovations, eco systems and the universe.

Cooking Lessons

Students can try their hands at creating and tasting traditional Spanish dishes – from paella, to tortilla and gazpacho. The lessons are usually delivered in Spanish giving students the opportunity to test their understanding of the language, although groups can request a translator if required.

Flamenco Lessons

Students can learn some simple dance steps of the expressive Spanish originated dance form. They can then put into practice their learning with an atmospheric guitar accompaniment.

Art Workshops

Inspired by the art of the Alhambra, students can have a go at creating their own glazed tiles or Arabic plaster embossing.

La Cartuja Monastery

Once the home of Carthusian monks and described as "the grandest and most outrageously decorated Carthusian monastery in Spain”, the current monastery dates back to the 14th century and is designed in a Baroque style.

Interactive Language Activities

Language students can engage in a variety of activities with a focus on learning Spanish. There are guided city and cathedral tours, a treasure hunt with ‘churros’ and an evening tapas tour to choose from.

Granada Cathedral

Granada’s cathedral is an impressive structure on the site of a former mosque. The building is a fine example of Spanish renaissance and Gothic architecture, where the works of famed Spanish Renaissance artists can be found.

Granada bullring

Popularly known as the Monumental del Frascuelo, groups can visit one of Granada’s architectural marvels – the Bullring of Granada. Groups can enjoy a guided tour of its bull pens and chapel, as well as learn about the history of bullfighting at the Granada Bullfighting Museum.
