Medieval Delights in Modern Spain

March 11 – March 22, 2024

This trip explores and celebrates the medieval legacies of art, music, literature, and culture that endure in modern Spain. Led by three Lawrence professors, Madera Allan (Spanish), Sara Ceballos (Musicology), and Danielle Joyner (Art History), we will spend twelve days (March 11-23, 2024) traveling through Al-Andalus, those regions of Spain once under Muslim control. The diverse Christian, Muslim, and Jewish communities who populated these lands in the Middle Ages (c. 500-1492 CE) contributed to the unique artistic and cultural traditions that make Medieval Spain fascinating and Modern Spain such an exciting destination. Travel includes visits in and around Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, and Granada!
