1st ESO students listening to the guide's explanation

On Monday the 6th and on the Tuesday the 7th, our students from the first of ESO and second of ESO, carried out an activity to learn about the history of their village.
At 11:30 am, the tour guide came to our school and from there we started our visit.
First of all, our guide took us to "the Loma" where he explained the battles between the Christians and Muslims which took place in this part of the village, which was a real battlefield.
From this point we could observe the structure of the original village as well as the medieval wall.  We also discussed "the cube," the only one of the four towers which still remains.
After going into the historic area through the arc of the Malena, we visited the church of "La Asunción ".
Then we went to"Water Square" where we learnt about the importance of its fountain for the inhabitants of this village.
2nd ESO students in San Roque hermitage
The visit continued through the village until we arrived at San Roque hermitage.
Finally we visited "La Glorieta", which was formerly a bullring.  From this beautiful square we were able to enjoy some impressive sightseeing. Here the tour guide explained the main characteristics of the landscape in "La Sierra de Segura." He also taught us how to identify the different species of pines by examining their size.
We would like to thank our tour guide Enrique for making our visit enjoyable!
