Welcome to Granada!

Located in the center of the city, the Escuela de Arte y Superior de Diseño José Val del Omar is part of the vibrant life of Granada. Our students are a step away from the cathedral, the historical districts of Albaycín (declared World Heritage Site), the Realejo besides the amazing Alhambra palace, and the commercial area.
The geographical location, together with the excellent climatic conditions, make it possible to spend a morning skiing in Sierra Nevada, and take a swim in the beach in the afternoon. All this less than an hour from the city center.
Around 3000 Erasmus+ students come to Granada every year. They found, not only the multicultural exchange that the Erasmus+ program offers, but also the hospitality of our institutions and people.
