Córdoba was a quick trip! Just enough time to grab some gelato and see one of my favorite architectural pieces of the trip.
El Mezquita-Cathedral de Córdoba es uno de los monumentos mas singulares del mundo! la arquitectura islamica, con helenisticos, romanos y bizantinos, se funde con la cristiana es una de las expresiones mas impresionante.
After our short visit to Cordoba, we got to Sevilla. It was everything that I imagined and more. The river that flowed through the middle of the city was so cool. We got there late that night so we all just got dinner and went straight to bed.
Thursday we saw the Cathedral de Sevilla.
They say that Christopher colobus is buried in this cathedral.
Los castillos son construcciones hechas de piedra, sin presunción y sólo se preocupaban de la seguridad de sus habitantes y una alcazar realmente preocupaban de la armonía, estética y belleza arquitectónica.
Our last stop was Granada! My favorite city we’ve been to in the program. Theres just something about it. The streets felt different with the vendors coming from northern Africa and the influence of the muslim culture. AND THE ALHAMBRA – the most magical place ever. The Conquest of Granada really highlighted the the impact of the Muslims on Spanish life, traditions and the colonial legislation.
It was interesting to analyze the difference and similarities between the muslim religion and my own. The one thing that we have in common and both put at the foundation of our testimonies is that God is real, He is present, He leads and guides us and is all powerful.
