Travelling along the Routes of El legado andalusí

Paths that make history. An adventure for the spirit that you can explore by road, on foot or cycling

The silk from Granada

The development of sericulture in Nasrid Granada meant a great economic and therefore social growth; merchants coming from diverse places came to the city to acquire the precious silk of Granada, which, in addition to a commercial exchange, also encouraged a fertile cultural transmission

Sicily and its bequest in the Mediterranean

In the center of the Mare Nostrum, the island of Sicily is a sort of omphalos of the ancient world, where the coastal East and West lands intersect: a transit corner and, at the same time, a place of permanence.

Ibn Firnas, craving to fly

The stories of people who have tried to fly are as old as the world. The best-known account dates back to about 3.400 years, when Icarus died in his attempt.

The music of al-Andalus, a shared legacy

Thanks to the oral tradition, the Arabic-Andalusian music has lasted until today, being transmitted from generation to generation.
