Explore the cultural wonders of Barcelona and Madrid with exciting day trips to a mountain top monastery and walled, medieval cities led by Southern Utah University Professors Jason Stinnett (Spanish), Grant Corser (Psychology) and Jean Boreen, Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Throughout this eight-day program, you will be guided by experts in Spanish history and literature, and psychological meaning to some of the most spectacular locations in Spain.

Arriving in the vibrant city of Barcelona, you’ll experience the architectural feats of Antonio Gaudi and explore areas like the Gothic district and the famous Las Ramblas. En route to Madrid, by rail, we will have an overnight stay in Zaragoza and see Spanish Inquisition sites, remnants of the ancient Roman Empire, and the famous pilgrimage site on the Ebro River.

In Madrid, be guided through the world-renowned Prado Museum, Plaza Mayor, and a host of other culturally significant areas. Leaving Madrid, we will adventure to Segovia’s ancient aqueduct, Gothic Cathedral, and former Royal Palace before going to medieval Toledo. Our program will conclude with a lively flamenco tablao and dinner.
