La Feria de la Fuensanta

It’s a new week and time for a new festival in Córdoba. This weekend the city will be celebrating the Feria de la Velá, or the Feria de la Fuensanta. Have a glass of Montilla  y Moriles, dance a round of sevillanas and don’t forget to check out the dead aligator on the wall of the church of Fuensanta, it’s a Cordobes tradition afterall!


Language and Culture

From September 17-30 Academia Hispanica is running our thrice yearly Language and Culture course.

This course is specially designed for adults who want to make the most of a two-week stay in Cordoba to combine learning Spanish with an in-depth knowledge of the culture, history, monuments and traditions of one of the most beautiful and best preserved historical cities in Andalucia. Cordoba has been declared a World Heritage city by the UNESCO and is competing for the title of 2016 European City of Culture.

We have arranged a complete programme of activities both inside and outside the city, with talks to prepare our students for the places they will visit. The guided tours follow the trail of the city’s historical monuments, left by the civilizations which have populated Cordoba over the centuries (Romans, Moslems, Jews and Christians) and the old Jewish Quarter (La Judería), with its fascinating network of narrow streets which take us back to bygone days. The guided excursions are to Seville, and to white villages in the province, where you will be able to visit the Montilla wine cellars, the pottery workshops in La Rambla, the museum of olive oil in Baena, the castle and village of Almodovar and the ruined city-palace of Medina Azahara.

The program includes: • three guided visits in the city • one full-day excursion (Saturday) • 2 half-day excursions • 2 talks in school about the city, its history, customs and traditions. • one evening out with the teacher

Price: Language & Culture 520 € • Spanish Course Timetable: Monday to Friday 10.00 – 13.00 • Starting Dates: September17th 2007, March 3th 2008, May 5th 2008 & September 15th 2008

Me, the person that writes this blog, is going on vacation for a bit. Just a warning in case you hate looking at un-updated pages.

I’m going to Cádiz, like lots of Spaniards! If you’ve never been, it’s definitely a lot of fun. This province hasn’t sold out to huge developers (as much) so there are still great secluded beaches to be found.

My favorites are Caños de Meca, La Caleta (Cádiz city’s beach), or Bolonia (near Tarifa) – although I don’t think anyone would call these beaches secluded.

I hope you are having a great summer! See you in September.
