Study Abroad


Sevilla, Spain Spring 2015


TTU students studying abroad at the TTU Center in Sevilla, Spain participated in several excursions during the semester. One being a day trip to places of interest in the neighboring province of Huelva where the main focus was on Christopher Columbus and his voyage to America. Visits included Palos de la Frontera, where Christopher Columbus set sail on his famous journey westward; La Rábida where the monastery where Columbus convinced the confessor of Queen Isabel, who was later instrumental in convincing the queen, that Columbus' journey was a worthwhile project; the shore where the life-size replicas of the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa María provided everyone with fun climbing all over the ships; Matalascañas, a local beach in Huelva where students dipped their toes in the Atlantic before the return trip to Sevilla.
