(The Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Granada)
The 2005 Learning Conference will be held at The Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Granada, one of the best known and largest education faculties in the Spanish speaking world.
Granada is a university city of approximately 300,000 people. The University of Granada is spread across a number of campuses in the heart of the city.
For several hundred years until 1492, Granada was a part of a Muslim empire that extended across north Africa and eastern and Southern Europe. Some of the best preserved Muslim architecture in the world is to be found in Granada, including the world heritage Alhambra site and the Albaicín, or the old Arabic quarter.
Catholic Monarchs Isabel and Ferdinand conquered Granada in 1492, and in the same year Christopher Columbus visited the king and queen to seek a grant to build the ships for his voyage to America. The cathedrals and museums and other important sites in Granada, reflect the grandiosity of the Spanish empire, and its iconic status as a meeting point of the great civilisations of the east and west.
Today, Granada is a thriving, modern university city, alive with students, bookstores and cafes.
