The teacher training will take place in Granada in southern Spain (Andalusia). The city is known for its medieval architecture, especially the Alhambra. During the teacher training, we will use this unique atmosphere for the combination of outdoor mathematics and cultural experiences.
The teacher training takes place at the University of Granada. The accomodation and meals will be paid by the MoMaTrE project. We booked the following accommodations. Both belong to the University of Granada.
It is possible to reach Granada by plane, either via the local airport in Granada, or a bigger airport in Malaga or Madrid.
The airport Federico García Lorca at Granada is weekly connected via several direct flights from the main international airports: Berlin/Tegel (TXL), Burdeos (BOD), Paris/Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Nantes/Atlantique (NTE), Londres/Gatwick (LGW), Manchester (MAN), Milan/Malpensa (MXP) and Napoles (NAP). Granada also has daily connecting flights with several national Spanish airports (Madrid, Bilbao, Tenerife, Barcelona, etc …).
Otherwise you can fly to the main international Spanish airports located in Madrid/Barajas (MAD) 430 km North of Granada, or to Malaga/Pablo Picasso international airport (AGP) located 135 km Southwest of Granada.
For the trip from Malaga or Madrid to Granada, it is possible to go by train or bus. Below, we prepared more detailed recommendations for your travel.
From Málaga to Granada
The most easy and comfortable way to reach Granada, if not directly by plain, is through Málaga international airport, daily served by hundreds of flights from the main European airports. From Málaga airport you can (best option) transfer directly to Granada by bus from the airport (8.00, 8.30, 9.00, 10.00, 10.45, 11.00, 11.30, 13.30, 15.00, 17.00, 18.30, 19.30, 20.45), or via the main bus station at Málaga with services every half an hour. Follow the link for the bus transfer.
Since April 2019, there also three daily services of fast AVE train from the Maria Zambrano Railway Station at Málaga to the main Railway Station at Granada.
From Madrid to Granada
From Madrid you can transfer with a local train from the airport to the Atocha Railway Station and them from here to the Granada Railway Station by high-speed train (AVE) served three times a day (about 3 h duration), or you can do it by bus with more consuming time (5,30 h) from the Méndez Álvaro bus station in Madrid.
From Granada Bus Station or Railway Station the easier way to reach your destination (Carmen de la Victoria or Corrala de Santiago) is by taxi. It’s a short ride (about 4 km). The Residences are located in traffic-restricted areas, so is possible, but more difficult, to reach it by public transport.
Walking distance from the Corrala de Santiago to the Carmen de la Victoria where takes place the Workshop is about 18 min. It`s an amazing walk along the Alhambra hill and close to the Darro river and the historical scenery of Granada.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Granada!
