On Friday morning, we were joined by Concha, an English and CAS teacher from Laude, on a tour of the city. She helped us understand more about the layers of history that shape the city, including former Muslim rule. Since students spent the first part of Friday learning more about Granada for our trip on Monday and Tuesday, it was a serendipitous overlap in history!
One of the first stops was the fish market. As you’ve probably noticed from previous posts, we are right near the ocean! The seafood available in the market was as fresh as could be with all different varieties, from ones in shells to ones with fins.
We continued on through the outdoor market areas to a few different churches/former mosques and areas where we could see flamenco on a weekend night. Though a lot of places are still closed from the New Year/Three Kings holiday season, it was cool to get a sense of the cultural sites in the city.
