Hola a todos! Granada is a hub of cultural activity, be it Spanish or Andalusian, this city has plenty to offer. The month of June is a very big month of cultural activities and celebrations as it is the month when the Corpus Christi Festival takes place. Here are some activities taking place in the first half of June that you can be a part of.
Cines Del Sur – Festival De Granada
This is a big film festival which showcases films and dramas from all around the world. It is more of a global cultural experience as opposed to a typically Spanish tradition; however, it is still very interesting and can open your mind to new things. There are two venues which are hosting open screenings so you can check out what’s on offer. They are in: Plaza De Las Pasiegas (pictured above, outside the Cathedral entrance) and Corral Del Carbon. There are also venues with exclusive screenings that charge a small entrance fee. You can check out what’s on here: http://www.juntadeandalucia.es/culturaydeporte/cinesurgranada/?lang=en
