Our GAP students got the opportunity to explore two of the most important towns in the province of Seville: Alcalá de Guadaira and Utrera.

Alcalá’s castle is the result of almost 4500 years of human history on the Hill of the castle.

Students enjoyed the landscape and the history. 

After Alcalá, students went to another town, Utrera, just 25 km from Seville.  Utrera is one of the most important towns of the province due to its economic prosperity and its rich history and heritage. The noble residences, churches and convents are all imposing.

The city is also the birthplace of FLAMENCO
