Seville, Cordoba & Granada

The region of Andalusia in the South of Spain is rich in history and is the source of many iconic elements of Spanish culture, such as bullfighting, flamenco dancing, and Moorish architecture.

Our exploration of Andalusia begins in Seville, the seat of economic power during Spain’s colonization of the Americas. Students will visit the Alcázar and the Cathedral of Seville – the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. Travel by train to Cordoba, once the capital of the Moorish Caliphate of Córdoba, then to Granada, site of the impressive Alhambra palace complex, as well as the burial place of the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand & Isabella.
