We have experience...
Castila was founded in 1988 by a group of 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.

A school in an unbeatable setting...
Castila is located in the Albaicn area, the famous Arabic quarter in the centre of Granada facing the Alhambra. Plazas, green spaces, narrow, traffic-free streets, fountains and the whitewashed walls of the houses.

... in a traditional neighbourhood.
The traditional houses of the Albaicn quarter are the famous “Carmens”*, and Castila is housed in one of them - the Carmen de los Gatos.
* A “Carmen” is the traditional Arabic house found in Granada, with a beautiful garden surrounded by a perimeter wall.

At Castila, everyone knows each other...
We have intentionally kept our school down to a medium size, allowing more personal contact between the students and everyone else at Castila. 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. a professional, yet familiar, atmosphere.
Thanks to the training, experience and dedication of our teachers, both inside and outside the classroom.

Lastly, we are proud of our students:

“Castila is not just a Spanish school, Castila is a way of living”. Aldy Ladha, (United States)

“The teachers are of the highest quality and full of passion for their language. Everyone - students as well as staff - become friends. No matter what your level, you will speak, eat, live and dream Spanish. Katherine Burns (United Kingdom)

“There is so much to say about Castila, not just about its numerous activities, but also about those little things that make up its soul: the in-jokes, breakfast at the Mirador de San Nicols, the friendship between teachers and students... How can I mention just one of all these things? Castila is a world of its own”. Agns Christeler (Switzerland)
