Spain is known to have a rich cultural heritage, a majestic blend of topographies, and internationally recognized museums and cathedrals. Spain has something to offer for everyone going abroad, whether you want to experience the mountainous northern region of Cataluna, the rich beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the south, or the beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol.
Students wanting to experience Granada can expect a city which overflows with cultural and architectural remnants of an illustrious past. At the same time, the modern aspects of this vibrant city are ever-apparent. Granada was the last Muslim stronghold to be recaptured by the Christian monarchs (1492), and although never officially Spain’s capital, its symbolic importance in the creation of modern Spain has made it a familiar name to historians and tourists alike.
