Project description:

Would you like to get lost in one of the most emblematic neighborhoods in the city of Granada? A rich Muslim, Jewish and Christian heritage is present in the streets of the Albaicin. This district is part of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage, together with the Alhambra and the Generalife.
The cultural diversity present in this neighborhood over the centuries, make this a unique setting to promote respect for different cultures, equality, eliminate xenophobia and racism among European youth, among other aspects …
We will know the most emblematic streets of this neighborhood where very illustrious people from different cultures walked, such as Washington Irving, Lorca, the different Muslim Kings or Catholic Kings among others …

Also to approach the importance of taking care of natural resources to youngsters and build an environmental consciousness.
To ensure the above, we will have some wonderful environments such as the classroom of the nature of Bérchules in full Alpujarra, in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, one of the most iconic landscapes of Spain.
