Cultural Discovery

Enjoy hands-on art workshops & activities in Granada!

Art permeates all aspects of Granada, from the Alhambra palace to the edgy graffiti found in the Realejo neighborhood. The city has a deep tradition of artisanry based on Moorish practices such as plaster, tile work, and marquetry and Christian influences such as stained glass and Renaissance architecture. Walking through the enchanting streets of Granada yields a visual experience like no other. Visit Malaga, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and a burgeoning European art center, and further your explorations in the city's most attractive art museums. Complement morning workshops with engaging cultural activities and tours in the afternoons. Put on your artist's hat and head to Spain!
