end year trip Granada

An end-of-year trip is not just a moment of fun and relaxation. It has many objectives that make it a complete and enriching non-formal education activity. Here are some tips on how to organize your end-of-year trip to Granada in the best possible way.

The entire city of Granada is a World Heritage Site. It is a wonderful city surrounded by the Sierra Nevada, famous for its great monuments from the Arab period of Al-Andalus and for its friendly atmosphere that will make you feel at home as soon as you walk through its streets. Certainly, the jewel of this Andalusian city is the Alhambra.

This sprawling hilltop fortress includes royal palaces, courtyards and reflecting pools of the Nasrid dynasty and fountains and orchards in the gardens of the Generalife, and you can see it from almost anywhere in Granada.

Where to stay with school groups in Granada?

To stay with your school group in Granada, you will have to consider several options and select the one that best suits the needs and characteristics of the group. Despite what it may seem, accommodation is one of the keys to a successful school trip. A good location, facilities, outdoor spaces or services offered will make the difference between a mediocre trip and a TRIP with capital letters.

And what options are there within the city of Granada? Like most school trips, the accommodation options for school groups are usually reduced to two: hotels/hostels and youth hostels. Granada is famous for being a university city full of youthful atmosphere, so it is full of affordable, accessible accommodations with a cheerful and friendly atmosphere, where young people from all Spanish and international regions meet, talk and exchange information and tips about the city of a thousand wonders.

Hotels as well as hostels are a good option to get to know this city. Hostels are probably cheaper but also less comfortable in terms of facilities and services. Being a small city, you can go and visit almost any place walking or by bus, except for La Cartuja, which is a little bit far away. If you are also planning to do some multi-adventure activity in Sierra Nevada, it is probably best to stay a little bit far from the center so you have better access to your bus. Whatever your choice is, in Granada you will enjoy like never before and save money.

The Alhambra in Granada

The Alhambra is an Andalusian palatine city that dates back to Al-Andalus, when the Moorish kings reigned in Spain. A group of palaces, gardens and fortress that housed a real citadel within the city of Granada itself, which served as accommodation for the monarch and the court of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada. Its real attraction, as in other Muslim works of the time, lies not only in the interiors, decorated with some of the highest standards of Andalusian art, but also in its location and adaptation, generating a new landscape but fully integrated with the pre-existing nature. In 2016 it was the second most visited monument in Spain, behind the Sagrada Familia, receiving the historical figure of 2 615 188 visitors.
