Spain 4: Seville, Cordoba and Granada

Spain  4: Seville, Cordoba and Granada

This exciting tour takes us to three of southern Spain's most interesting and beautiful cities: Granada, Cordoba, and Seville. Granada we discover is an ancient city of cathedrals, mosques, and palaces that date back over 3,000 years. One of the greatest sights of Europe and the focal point of Granada is Alhambra, a complex of palaces, fortresses and gardens built by the Moors high above the city. Cordoba we learn was once the largest city of Roman Spain and later formed the heart of the western Islamic empire. The Mosque of Cordoba, founded in 1785 by Abd ar-Rahman, has expanded over 200 years to become the 3rd largest structure in the Islamic world. Seville is not only one of the most beautiful cities in the world; it is the cultural, artistic, and financial center of southern Spain. Its most famous landmark is the Gothic-styled Cathedral and Belltower, "La Giralda," which was built in the 15th and 16th centuries on the grounds of a former Arab mosque. 03/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
