Tour of Andalusia 2014
See an interactive map of the tour
The itinerary, following in the footsteps of Muhyiddin Ibn ʿArabi, started in Murcia, Ibn ʿArabi's birthplace almost 850 years ago, with a 2-day seminar. We then travelled across Andalusia visiting all the major centres of Islamic Spain, including Cordoba, Granada, Ronda and Almeria, as well as less-known places where the breath of al-Andalus can still be felt and experienced. The tour concluded in Seville, the town where he spent most of his early adult life. It included specialist guides, meetings with contemporary Sufi practitioners, hands-on classes on traditional geometry and Islamic art as well as a final evening of flamenco.
This year the tour was led by two senior research fellows of the Muhyiddin Ibn ʿArabi Society, Stephen Hirtenstein (author of The Unlimited Mercifier) and Jane Carroll (a practising architect and specialist on Islamic geometry).
