Excursions

API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Cádiz programs. All excursions are subject to change.

Spring

GRANADA

Granada is one of the most enchanting cities in Spain. With more than a thousand years of recorded history, Granada enjoys one of Spain’s most important cultural and architectural patrimonies. Granada sites include the Alhambra and the historical Moorish Albaicín quarter, both designated as World Heritage by the UNESCO.

LISBON, PORTUGAL
INTERNATIONAL EXCURSION

Lisbon is a European city like no other. It boasts as grand a cultural and historical heritage as many other European cities, but also has an earthier side that sets it apart. An impressive Gothic cathedral, the Hieronymites Monastery, St. George’s Castle and Torre de Belém are all part of the colourful cityscape. Another side of LIsbon is discovered wandering around the narrow lanes of Alfama, Rossio and Barrio Alto Quarters, and taking in the sounds and rhythm of the city. One experiences a step back in time through visits to the cultural sites in Lisbon, while also gaining an impression of the differences between Portugal and Spain.

MADRID

Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage. Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

TARIFA

Reaching out into the sea, the southernmost point in Europe and the closest point to Africa, Tarifa is one of the most renowned cosatal towns in southern Spain, and a Mecca for windsurfers. Besides its numerous prehistoric remains (such as the paintings in the Moro Cave and the necropolis at Los Algarbes), Phoenician and Roman remains dot the site as well.

TOLEDO

Toledo, located south of Madrid, was declared ‘City of Mankind’s Heritage’ by UNESCO in 1986. It was capital of Spain from mid-6th to the mid-16th centuries, as evidenced by its impressive medieval architecture. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” it served as a hub for Jews, Moors and Christians and has today become a symbol of religious tolerance. Walking through Toledo is like taking a magic journey into the past.

Fall

GIBRALTAR

Situated on the southern tip of Spain, and famous for its Rock and monkeys, Gibraltar is a small, British Overseas Territory located 9 miles from the coast of Morocco.

MADRID

Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage. Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

PARIS, FRANCE
INTERNATIONAL EXCURSION

One of the most intriguing cities in the world, Paris is full of amazing museums, architecture, music, fashion and beauty. One of the great cultural and intellectual centers of the West, it is felt by many to be the heart, soul, and imagination of France. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history. The Louvre, a former palace and current home to the world’s largest art collection; Notre Dame, a grandiose jewel of the gothic era; the Eiffel Tower, a turn of the century masterpiece; and Montmartre, an artist’s haven, are only a few examples of Paris’ highlights.

SEVILLE

Seville, capital of the Andalucía region of southern Spain, is a unique example where history, tradition and modernity merge in an incomparable city. Fascinating sites include the area on the East Bank of the Guadalquivir where the Cathedral, the Christian Alcázar, and the medieval quarter are located.

TOLEDO

Toledo, located south of Madrid, was declared ‘City of Mankind’s Heritage’ by UNESCO in 1986. It was capital of Spain from mid-6th to the mid-16th centuries, as evidenced by its impressive medieval architecture. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” it served as a hub for Jews, Moors and Christians and has today become a symbol of religious tolerance. Walking through Toledo is like taking a magic journey into the past.
