The Venue


Alqueria de Rosales is perfectly suited to the contemplative work of making Islamic geometric art. Set in the remote countryside of Andalucia, in the municipality of La Puebla de Don Fadrique, north of the province of Granada. The site is located at the foot of the Sierra de La Sagra, with beautiful mountains and woodland as well as great biodiversity. The region also has some of the clearest night skies in Western Europe. It offers a calm haven for studying and sharing this art form.

All accommodation is on site, and all meals are prepared in the kitchens of the venue. All food is prepared according to the requirements of Islamic law. We have a set menu but we are also happy to cater for pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan diets, and can accommodate some food allergies.

The cafe serves a selection of reasonably priced drinks and snacks from morning to late evening every day. Free wi-fi is available in the restaurant and cafe.

Alqueria de Rosales has a private pool for use by guests. As an Islamic cultural centre, the pool has separate scheduled times for men and women. These scheduled times will take account of the schedule of the classes.

A laundry service is available for an additional cost.


The course is suitable for anyone aged 16 and over, however, minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult who is also attending the course. In the event that the accompanying adult is not a parent or legally registered guardian, we may require formal written permission confirming permission for their attendance from a parent or guardian.

We are very happy to welcome additional family members of course attendees who wish to stay at Alqueria de Rosales without attending the sessions. However, guests are responsible for the care of any minors and we are not able to offer childcare services during the course.
