What is the course about?

This course gives you the extra mile to really say you know Granada more than the average. It is introduced by a short historical and socio-cultural view structured in three parts covering Granada, its province and folklore.
The most interesting aspect of the workshop is the possibility to explore unknown aspects, not only of the city but also of the province.
There will be a Q&A time for those who want to know more about certain places of interest.
The course also offers useful recommendations for those willing to travel to Granada.
