Trip Description
Southern Spain

Spain’s proud history and architectural legacy embrace Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Moors, and the Catholic Kings of Spain’s “Golden Age.” This spring, join CWRU for a journey into the heart and soul of Southern Spain – Andalucía! We begin in Madrid, the capital, and then head south to Toledo, Cordoba, and Granada. The ethereal beauty of the Alhambra, the gorgeous gardens of the Generalife, and the old city known as the Albaicin, make Granada one of the most historic cities in Europe. We continue to Seville, across Andalucía, through wonderfully romantic white-washed villages.
