The Faculty of Architecture of University of Granada is a leading school in Spain. We are thankful for their implication in the organization CERE 2020
The University has restored an ancient building in the Realejo, one of the historical neighbourhoods in Granada, which holds the new Faculty of Architecture. Combining the old architectural style of the historical neighbourhood with new advances in education and research, the Faculty will become an emblematic feature of the city.
The University of Granada (UGR) is a public university situated in the historical city of Granada, which lies just 35 km from the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountain range and 65 km from the tropical Mediterranean coast. The University was officially founded by the Emperor Charles V in the year 1531, and built on a centuries-old teaching tradition dating back to the madrasahs of the Nasrid dynasty of Granada. Accordingly, it is one of the most significant universities in Europe in terms of its historical importance.
Since its founding, the UGR has expanded on a par with the city, with its faculties and schools distributed throughout the metropolitan area. Five of the UGR’s seven campuses are spread out across the city of Granada, giving it an unmistakable university atmosphere. Meanwhile, the University’s campuses in the North African cities of Ceuta and Melilla make it one of the few genuinely intercontinental universities in the world. It also maintains strong historical ties with institutions and universities in Latin American, leaving it perfectly placed to fulfil the role of a bridge between Europe and Latin America on the one hand, and between Europe and North Africa on the other.
