Days 3, 4 and 5 of the CHAH Goes to Europe tour with Explorica Tours brought the students and staff from Lisbon to Evora, Portugal. From there, they crossed the boarder into Spain, visiting the fourth largest city in the country, Sevilla.
On Day 3, the students visited Evora, a walled city built by the Romans in the First Century.
Fittingly, they spent Easter Sunday at The Cathedral of Evora.
From there, it was a bus ride to Spain. A Spanish flamenco dancer greeted the kids upon their arrival in Sevilla!
Then, they took a cruise on the Guadalquivir River and saw The Gold Tower, so named because in the 16th Century it held gold from the newly discovered Americas. The students tried to bring some back but, alas, didn't have the Midas touch.
Day 4 brought them to Plaza de Espana, the Alcanzar Royal Palace, The Giralda, and Columbus' tomb.
After a quick bite to eat, the students took a tour of Barrio Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter, and had a tasty ice cream break.
And what trip would be complete without a little gift shopping?
Day 5 was spent traveling in the early morning, some of the students getting some much needed rest on the bus. Their first stop in Cordoba was the main entrance of the city, built in the First Century.
Their tour guide took them on a walk through the old Jewish quarter of that city as well. Different countries, cities, and cultures galore!
