CL1099 Modern to Contemporary in the Arab World

Explore Andalusia, Spain’s southernmost region which from the eighth to fifteenth centuries was home to an Arab Muslim society that left behind a rich literary and urban heritage. Visit Cordoba, Sevilla, and Granada, sites of some of the best-preserved buildings to have survived from medieval Muslim civilization. The high point of the visit is the Alhambra, the ‘Red Palace’ of Granada, an architectural complex devoted to mystical poetry.
