Accommodation during the exchange

Residence outside

Thanks to an agreement between Canary Islands Government and La Laguna city council, we can use this residence to host the project participants, from 2nd to 11th of July 2012.

The school residence “Pedro García Cabrera” is an educational center that houses those students without ordinary means of communication because they live in scattered populations or lack of a school publicly funded in its area of influence, no access to those levels of study they wish to undertake, or socio-economic conditions make it appropriate to ensure their level of education or their maturing conditions.

Residence Yard

This school residence aims the full development of personality of the student through an integral human formation and respect for democratic principles of coexistence and the rights and fundamental freedoms, and promoting actions to help students in their training for the exercise future professional activities.

Pedro García Cabrera (1905-1981), was one of the great canarian poets of the twentieth century. He was born in Vallehermoso (La Gomera) on August 19, 1905. In his teens he moved to Tenerife to study in high school and enroll in the School of Education at the University of La Laguna, and very young, joined in the nucleus of writers demanding and dissatisfied, that were fertilized by poetry and the plastic of the historical vanguards.
