What better place to study archaeology than in Granada, home to two UNESCO world heritage sites? Granada’s awe-inspiring and world-renowned Alhambra palace was the last remaining citadel of Moorish rule in Western Europe until its fall in 1492, while the stunning historical quarter known as the Albaicin was once home to the Moorish and Jewish communities in Granada.

Thanks to the multitude of diverse communities that settled here, Granada itself is one of the most historically and archaeologically rich cities in Western Europe. The UGR’s five campuses, libraries and centre are also spread out across the city, housed in the most emblematic buildings, many of which date back as far as the XVI century.
