For this, we will study the great monuments such as the Romanesque churches, the Gothic cathedrals or the modernist buildings as well as the main painters and sculptors, from El Greco, Velázquez or Murillo to Goya, Picasso or Dalí.
Each session will consist of a presentation of the theme from a power point. The active participation of the students is expected. The class will be complemented with visits to the main monuments and museums of the city.
