|Granada is in a privileged geographical location in southeastern Spain. The city is close to both Sierra Nevada, an excellent ski resort, and the Mediterranean coast. Granada enjoys one of Spain’s most important cultural and architectural heritage. Besides the Alhambra, the world renowned palaces and fortresses of the Nasrid dynasty, and the historical Moorish Albaicín quarter, both designated as World Heritage by the UNESCO, Granada boasts a Renaissance cathedral dating from the 16th century and many other architectural monuments of the first magnitude.
Moreover, Granada is a cultural and scientific city. Renowned as home to Federico Garcia Lorca, its prestigious University with over 60,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students has remarkable international reputation. In addition to this, there is a Health Science Technological Park where many important health companies are working in research, biological and medical industry.
