The Plaza de Espana
The Plaza de España, is a principal building built on the edge of Maria Luisa Park to display Spain’s industry and technology exhibits and combines a mix of 1920s Art Deco and Spanish Renaissance Revival, Spanish Baroque Revival and Neo-Mudéjar styles. Your students will see that this complex is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge which they can access by crossing the moat on the bridges that represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. You will see the many tiled alcoves by the walls of the Plaza which are flanked by a pair of covered bookshelves. The grandest mansions have been adapted as museums which include the city’s archaeology collections and exhibits of Roman mosaics and artefacts.
The Seville Cathedral is the third-largest church in the world as well as the largest Gothic church. The interior has the longest nave of any cathedral in Spain and is famous for its great boxlike choir loft and the vast Gothic carved scenes from the life of Christ. The Giralda, or bell tower, is the former minaret of the mosque that stood on the site under Muslim rule and was one of the most important symbols in the medieval city. The mosque’s ‘sahn’ is the courtyard which contains a fountain and orange trees and was used for the faithful to conduct their ritual cleansing before entering the prayer hall. It is known today as the Patio de los Naranjos. Seville Cathedral is also famous for its fifteen doors which are elaborately decorated, such as the Door of the Nativity and the Door of the Lizard.
Puertas de Tirerra
Puertas de Tierra sits at the entrance of the city of Cadiz. It is a bastion-monument built around remnants of the old defensive wall and its cover is carved in marble and was intended more as a religious altarpiece than as a military fortification. It separates the Old Town and the modern area from the city.
Córdoba is a city in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia and was an important Roman city and a major Islamic centre in the Middle Ages. It’s best known for the Great Mosque of Córdoba and the Mezquita, which is an immense mosque dating from 784 A.D., and features a columned prayer hall and older Byzantine mosaics. Cordoba is world renowned for its leather manufacturing sites and silversmiths plus the world’s largest olive plantations on the outskirts.
Costa del Sol
Puerto José Banús, is a marina which was built in 1970 by José Banús, a local property developer, as a luxury marina and shopping complex. It is known as Costa del Sol’s playground for the rich and wealthy who visit for the beaches, the beach clubs, the buzzing nightlife, the expensive shops and restaurants.
