#Our Site

Our School is a beautiful Carmen (the traditional house with garden) located 30 secs away from the most emblematic site in the city, El Mirador de San Nicolás. Right in the heart of the Albaicin, UNESCO World Heritage Site, the warm community and close proximity to markets and local businesses, allow students to immerse in the local community. Our backyard is surrounded by the Alcazaba Qadima, an XI century wall from Granada’s Muslim times.
