Our second meeting took place in Granada from Sunday 18 March 2018 to Saturday 24 March 2018. Lucia – one of the Spanish students – made a diary that recaps this amazing week:
On Monday morning, the Spanish students from IES Padre Manjón organised an opening ceremony during which we discovered a little about the Spanish folklore – songs, flamenco performances, the making of mosaics…
It ended with an ice-breaking game based on some of the Alhambra’s mosaics.
The students learned more about the environment thanks to a conference about the environmental impact of mining activities that took place at La Facultad de Ciencias – Faculty of Sciences of the UGR.
They also visited El Museo Preindustrial de la caña de azúcar de Motril – Motril’s Sugar Cane Museum – and Isla Verde in Alhendin, which is one of the biggest recycling facilities in Andalusia.
We couldn’t spend a week in Granada without going to its most iconic places – la Alhambra and el Albaicín.
The Alhambra is a fortified Moorish palace while the Albaicín is famous for its narrow winding streets and both were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1984.
