Pre-Conference Tour: Religions and Cultures in Granada

About the Tour

Islam, Judaism, and Christianity: three different religions that have so much in common that they managed to find a space within the Kingdom of Granada to make it one of the most prosperous of its time. In this tour, we will visit places where these three cultures are prominent in the city of Granada to get into their religion, culture, and tradition:

The Realejo, center of the Garnata Al-Yahud (the grenade of the Jews) is one of the centers of power and wealth of the city, with notable people like Samuel Negrella and Saúl Ibn Tibon.

El Albayzín, the ancient Muslim Granada, where today the best influence of the Muslim past and present in Spain can be observed.

The historical Center of the Christian Life of Granada has an imposing cathedral and squares for the celebration of the religious acts that mark the calendar of the city.

In this tour, we will discover how these three cultures coexisted in different time periods, and how they survived a convulsive period that was common in this small kingdom in southern Europe.
