Castila in Granada Castila was founded in 1988 by a group of Spanish teachers who felt a true passion and enthusiasm for their language and culture and a vocation to teach.
Our philosophy is to transmit the real Spain, so full of contrasts, a society where cultural exchange is so important.
Castila is located in the Albaicin area, the famous Arabic quarter in the centre of Granada facing the Alhambra. Plazas, green spaces, narrow, traffic-free streets, fountains and the white-washed walls of the houses. Learn more..

We have intentionally kept our school down to a medium size, allowing more personal contact between the students and everyone else at Castila so that you can take full advantage.
We have a maximum class size of 6 students, so that the atmosphere and relationship between students and teachers cannot be bettered.
This all takes place in a professional, yet familiar atmosphere, thanks to the training, experience and dedication of our teachers, both inside and outside the classroom.
Social and Cultural Activities
To achieve cultural immersion in a foreign country, Castila considers that it is necessary to know the language (see courses), but there is much more. Castila has developed 54 different extracurricular activities that help students' integrate into the Spanish life style.
These activities are of very different types: thematic evenings, musical evenings, Spanish movies,trips, excursions, "tapas-tour", "paella in the garden", sports...
At Castila, we believe that the accommodation is a fundamental part of a satisfactory stay. Over the last twenty years, we have continually increased our accommodation offer. All our options are less than 15 minutes walking distance from the school.
