Responsible tourism: Learn Spanish and Arabic Culture in Granada


During the guided visits related to Arabic culture and legacy in Granada participants do not need any public transport to get to the monuments and the places they are going to visit. All sightseeing places are in walking distance to the school and the city center.

Not everyone is willing, or in the position, to give up air travel, despite the general awareness that this form of travel significantly contributes to the greenhouse effect. Hence, for people who are concerned with the environmental consequences of air travel, a service has now been created: atmosfair. Air-passengers can donate an amount which is equivalent to the gases emitted by their flight. The funds collected are invested in solar, hydropower, biomass, or energy-efficiency projects and thereby contribute to neutralizing greenhouse gases by an amount comparable with the aircraft's emissions. Students donation therefore helps to achieve these projects!

Our school also adopt environmentally friendly actions such as office recycling, purchasing FCS or recycled office supplies whenever possible.


In the afternoons participants will visit the Alhambra, the old Arabic quarter Albaicín and the Arabic bath. These visits are complemented with workshops about calligarphy and cooking. These workshops take place in collaboration with local teachers who had maintained their Arabic traditions.

For example: Spanish cuisine owes a large part of its typical dishes to the Arabs. You want to learn about the Arabic legacy still prevailing in the succulent gastronomy of this beautiful Eastern Andalusian region? What better way to bring to you the Arabic tastes of Andalusia than to take you directly into a kitchen. Although many cultural achievements from that period were forgotten when the Christians reconquered Spain, the art of cooking and baking has remained.

We offer this programme in collaboration with a local guides and teachers. Some of them are originally from Morocco or other Arabic countries. The incomings of the workshops are entirely forwarded to them in order to support our community.
