Spain: Faith, Empires and the Arts and Social Changes

September 24, 2014October 11, 2014

We invite you to join Global Exchange Reality Tours, and Chabot College historian Rick Moniz for a unique 18-days tour of Spain. 

Spain enjoys a rich history. The Romans, Visigoths, Jews, Muslims and Christians have all left their mark. Today, Spain faces new challenges from the Euro debt crisis to immigration challenges. Changing Fortunes, Changing Times examines the sweep of Spanish History. The past becomes the present, as we look at the critical issues facing Spaniards at the beginning of the 21st century.

This is travel for the adventurous – intellectually and physically – as we will be exploring the Andalusian region of Southern Spain via coach and walking, and then walking about 70 miles of the Camino de Santiago. During the trip we will investigate the history and impact of faiths, empires and the arts in these regions.

At various places during the trip, Rick will talk about the dynamics that have led to violence in the past, and explore a future where violence is replaced with non-violent means resolving conflicts. The sojourning along the Camino will enable the group to engage in some profound discussions on these and other pressing topics facing global societies.

This tours starts in Madrid and ends in Santiago de Compostela.
