It’s a city, but a small one, with a population of around 240,000 people. (Pittsburgh, for context, has a population of around 300,000.) Despite Granada’s lack of international prominence, it’s an absolutely fantastic place to spend a semester.

    I’ve always loved the physical signs of history. I love that the rushing tide of human life has carved its structures and swirls into the world.

A prominent example of this exchange is the Alhambra.
