Spain

Córdoba y Sevilla

Hola!

We had a great weekend! On Friday we left Conil for Córdoba where we visited the Jewish Quarter, La Mezquita whose construction started in 782, and Córdoba’s old Synagogue and one of the only three Medieval ones left in Spain. We ate at the Mercado La Victoria and after lunch, we had tea at a beautiful and traditional Moroccan tea shop. That night we left for Seville where we had time to take a quick shower at the hotel before we went out for dinner. We had dinner on la Alameda which is an avenue full of restaurants and cafes. Students chose the place they like the best and they told us they ordered 13 different dishes! I have to say we have never had a group who enjoys eating and trying new things as much as this one.

The following day we met Juan, our tour guide, at 10 am and we saw so much: the Jewish Quarter, Plaza de España, la Catedral, la Giralda and Reales Alcazares, Seville’s Royal Palace where some of Game of Thrones was filmed (for fans out there, remember Dorne? Well, we were in Dorne). After a typical long lunch, we visit las Setas monument which boasts the best views in Seville. After a bit of free time, we went back to Conil.

Tomorrow Conil celebrates the Patron saint of Fishermen: “La Virgen del Carmen”. It is a lovely fiesta where the statue of the Virgen del Carmen is taken by boat all along the coast while followed by smaller boats.

Enjoy the photos!
