POST CONGRESS ROUTE: 19, 20, 21 september

Visite to Seville, Cordoba and Granada: Ceramics in Andalusia and in ancient Islamic art

The post tour will begin after the weekend of 17th and 18th September in order to allow the participants of the meeting to have free time for visiting galleries, exhibitions and many places of Barcelona that could not be included in our program.

 The tour will include one of the most beautiful and interesting places of the Andalusia region in Southern Spain and will encompass the cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. This region has some of the richest and most important examples of Islamic art and architecture dating to Medieval times.

This tour is outside of the basic program of the Congress and is to be paid for separately by each participant. All transport, meals and accommodation are included in the price of the tour (to be determined). We expect the tour will average between 30 – 50 participants.
