 Huma’s Travel Guide to Islamic Spain

A unique, dynamic, sophisticated Muslim culture flourished in Spain between 711 and 1492 CE, leaving us with some of the world’s most breathtaking works of architecture, such as Cordoba’s Mezquita and the Alhambra of Granada. But Islamic Spain is not merely a historical fact: many thousands of Muslims remained secretly after the fall of al-Andalus, and we can trace their influence through Spanish food, language, arts and traditions. Join us on a fascinating journey through the lost land of al-Andalus, visiting its major towns and meeting modern-day Muslims in this beautiful, friendly country.
