Description of Learn Spanish & photography in Granada, Spain
Photography is often as large a part of a holiday as experiencing new cultures which is why it seems only natural to include a couple of tutored photography sessions as part of this week-long Spanish language course in Granada.
From the Islamic mosaics and intricate detail of the Alhambra to the white-washed villages of the Alpujarras, Andalucía has become one of Spain's most photographic regions and certain to provide an endless array of opportunities to practise newfound skills.
Morning Spanish language lessons, free afternoons to explore at leisure and two afternoons enjoying a guided photography workshop – if you're looking to discover Spain from a whole new perspective then this is most definitely the holiday for you.
This tailor made holiday is open to learners of all levels and the duration can be lengthened if you're looking to spend more time learning Spanish and practising photography in Andalucía. We also offer an excellent choice of accommodation styles too with everything from homestays to self-catering apartments allowing students to make the most of their time in the most comfortable way possible. Please get in touch for more details.
1 Reviews of Learn Spanish & photography in Granada, Spain
Reviewed on 14 Oct 2018 by Peter Martin
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
I mainly went for a short crash course in Spanish and I was not disappointed. The school caters for all levels and is extremely expert. I joined a lovely small group only one of whom was British although everyone spoke perfect English. I left wanting more.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
I opted for photography workshops as well and they were one to one in my case. The hiking involved was testing for an older person although the teaching was good. This was my first trip to mainland Spain having visited the Balearic Islands many times with package holidays, so negotiating the travel arrangements by myself was something new and needed concentration. The Alhambra is of course something outstanding and not to be missed on a first trip to Granada but it would be a mistake to try to walk up to it or the visitor might be quite tired before even starting to enjoy the experience.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I used public transport but apart from that I'm afraid not.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
I had a good time and the holiday finished much too soon.
PlanetWe love nature. And we believe that connecting with it is a powerful way of inspiring solutions to preserve it. That is why we want to explore landscapes in Granada province and its urban corners, such as the old arabic quarter of Albaicín or the Alhambra aerea, through a camera.
To inspire you with its beauty and to make you an active part of the green, silent revolution that is taking place nowadays in Spain, in cities, towns and rural territories. Our goal is to deliver you an outstanding experience and insight into the local environment and culture.
We organise this package in collaboration with local photographers.
One of our destination is the protected area of the Gorafe desert:
We will show you a strange semi-desert lunar landscape with unique light, known as the “badlands”. Here you will find a plethora of sandy riverbeds that form a labyrinth, home to aromatic plants. Beyond this you come to an immense high plateau, dotted with large holm-oak trees and fields of cereals.
Here you begin to come across megalithic dolmens, the silent witnesses to the beliefs and customs of our prehistoric ancestors - this was one of the first parts of Europe to be settled by man.
Our guides will inform participants during the whole tour about the protection politics of the area and how to behave during the tour:
- it is not possible to enter into the area by car; participantes have to walk the trails which lead to specific places.
- visitors have to maintain silence near the dolmens
- visitos are not allowed to pick up any minerals or stones they may find on their way.
- visitors should avoid to use artificial light and should leave the area before darkness.
PeopleWe partner with local professional photographers. Also other local businesses such as public transport or restaurants where we are going to have a short break are involved in the organization of the tour. During one afternoon per week our photographers will lead the participants through the beautiful landscapes of the Sierra Nevada National Park situated in the surrounding of the city. Thanks to this type of program there’s an incentive of the tourism, that gives the possibility to discover new places and permits the inhabitants of the area to obtain an economic benefit. The guides contact also with environmental NGOs in order to gather the knowledge, expertise and resources that make a difference in your travel and in the places that you visit. Another session will take place in different city areas such as the old Arabic quarter Albaicin or the Sacromonte gypsie quarter. Here our guides will inform participants about the different cultural activities in the city (such as Flamenco shows, guided visits to museums and the Alhambra) which improves local tourism.
