Adventure in Andalusia 
 
All high school students are invited to participate in an amazing educational excursion to Spain this summer from May 29 to June 10. We will visit several cities, with a special emphasis on Toledo and Andalusia, areas rich with a blend of cultures-Christian, Muslim, and Jewish-and abundant physical traces from the Romans, Visigoths, Moors, and Castilians. Take Córdoba's Mezquita as a completely unique example. Imagining the sounds of a call to prayer, we will enter the courtyard and then meander around the dazzling striped arches built by the Muslim Moors on the site of a Visigothic church. Right in the center of this beautiful former mosque our eyes will be lifted up to the heights of a bright Renaissance cathedral. In one building we will experience the best of two different cultures with thousands of years of layers.

Elsewhere, we will visit Baroque Christian palaces and Medieval Muslim palaces, a bullring, castles, synagogues, and two of Europe's best museums where we will see incredible and memorable works like The Garden of Earthly Delights and Guernica by Europe's best painters-El Greco, Goya, Velázquez, and Picasso. We will walk under the two-thousand-year-old arches of the Roman aqueduct in Segovia, and we will have time to wander around and explore great cities like Granada, Seville, and Toledo, where we will spend three full days and four nights.

Over the course of two weeks, students will have an unforgettably enriching experience, immersing themselves in the history, art, and culture of a special region-all with Veritas Prep's goals in mind: to foster a sense of wonder and a great depth of understanding in every student in every place we visit. You can find more information on what is included and the price at the following link: www.explorica.com/Nydegger-5059. A $150 discount is available until October 30.
