Program Description

Spain was ruled by the Nationalist dictator, Francisco Franco, from 1939 until his death in 1975.  During the post-war period, Spain did little to modernize its infrastructure.  Once a Parliamentary system of government was adopted and Spain joined the European Union, the process of modernization was accelerated.  Students will visit sites of ancient infrastructures such as the Roman Aqueducts at Segovia and Alhambra, the last Moorish stronghold in Spain.  Modern sites such as the high speed train, the Madrid Metro (the 12th longest in the world), and Bernabéu Soccer Stadium.  

-Students will also have class at the University of Granada while visiting local sites.
