Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Saadane Benbabaali is an Algerian academic whose ancestors came from what is now the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. He has retired from teaching literature and Arabic at Paris University III. But for 15 years, Benbabaali has led groups of students on annual trips to Andalusia to share his passion and knowledge about the region and its rich history. The retired university teacher subscribes to a school of thought that considers Andalusia's golden age to have been a beacon of enlightenment for Europe and the lands around the Mediterranean Sea.
