Christ The King students travel to Seville, Spain!
Last week of June students of Spanish from CTK St. Mary´s and Emmanuel traveled to Seville, Spain. This was an opportunity to support them in their academic studies but also to increase their cultural appreciation in a city where Muslims, Christians and Jews left their marks.
Upon arrival, they enjoyed a night of tapas in the busy streets of Seville. Next morning, they headed to Parque Maria Luisa to explore the beautiful gardens and buildings that hosted the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929.
Our students participated in a gymkhana contest. Congratulations to the winners!!
At lunch time we visited the Mercado de Abastos to cook our own paella and after some well deserved break we attended a student exchange in Centro Mundo Lengua. Our students had the opportunity to put their Spanish to the test and make some new friends while practicing the language.
On Tuesday, they visited the amazing Royal Alcázar Palace with its gardens, the Cathedral and the astonishing Giralda, the bell tower from which top they could see Seville from a bird´s eye view. In the afternoon, they joined a flamenco class and continued with a flamenco live show in an 18th century sevillian palace.
On Friday, they enjoyed a guided tour through the Sevilla Mudéjar, the architectural pos-Islamic style that remained in Spain after the Christian reconquest. Our final stop was the Baroque Revival church of La Macarena that gives name to many Sevillian girls and to a very famous song.
