The Andalusian Legacy
Fall, Spring. Credits: 3. Language: Spanish
The term Al-Andalus refers to the territory of the Iberian Peninsula that was under Muslim domain between 711-1492. This long tenure of nearly 800 years has confirmed a legacy that now forms a significant part of the hallmarks of Spanish culture. In this sense, the course is organized to include several subjects on the study of Muslim monuments such as the origin of Mudejar and Mozarabic art. The transformation of the city, houses and gardens, the greatest example of which is the Alhambra in Granada. The development of agriculture and the arrival of new foods that are the origin of modern Spanish cuisine. We will also emphasize on the linguistic influence, music, festivities and traditions that make Spain such a unique country.
