  • Length of course: 1 term. Spring (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 30
  • Start date: 18 January 2022
  • Description:

    Dress in your finest coloured silks while you sip lemon sherbet. Nibble fresh almonds and apricots to the sound of a seductive lute, with no other distraction than a pulsating water-wheel irrigating a paradise garden. Open your eyes, for you are in Al-Andalus, that wide area of the Iberian Peninsula which over 2000 generations of Muslims called home in a golden age which endowed not only Spain but the whole world with new tastes in music, architecture, medicine, philosophy and of course food.

  • I have spent 20 years following Santiago Matamoros to Galicia. On the way I have met many interesting Moors whose story deserves to be told.
