On this one-day excursion to Cordoba (the third largest city in Andalusia that sits along the Guadalquivir river) students will tour the Mezquita, an impressive 10th-century mosque, famous for its red and white candy cane style arches, that curiously houses a 16th-century Renaissance cathedral. They will explore the historic Jewish quarter, which has been preserved for centuries, and visit one of three original synagogues remaining in Spain. As Cordoba was once home to populations of Romans, Muslims, Christians and Jews, often in overlapping combinations. Each of these groups left visible imprints upon the city, and students will be able to identify their respective influences by the end of the excursion.
