Description of Learn Spanish and rock climb in Granada, Spain
Rock climbing in and around Sierra Nevada National Park in Andalucía is an absolute pleasure with limestone landscapes and tempting crags opening up before your very eyes in addition to some of the best sport climbing sites in the whole of southern Spain.
This province of southern Spain encapsulates the area’s natural beauty and rock climbing is certainly one of the best ways to get to grips with the physical geography as well as discovering the social and cultural landscape too as you study Spanish in its country of origin – the only way to learn.
Our rock climbing programmes run all year round, thanks to the climate, and, of course, our Spanish classes do too. Why not tailor a week or more of language learning and rock climbing? Not only will you get to meet new people in a choice of accommodation but you’ll also be located in Granada with plenty of free time to explore the city of an afternoon or evening.
Our main rock climbing zone is Los Cahorros which is just a short stroll from the village of Monachil, just on the outskirts of Granada. Other recommended sites for climbing include the crags of Alfacar, Loja, Diezma, Los Vados and Malaga's El Chorro which can all be reached by car.
If you need any more information relating to our climbing, language or accommodation programmes please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
