Through guided tours, the educational centers in La Zubia are able to share the history of the municipality with their visitors.

From the Department of Tourism, the City Council of La Zubia has launched yet again a series of educational itineraries for schoolchildren. It aims to bring Zubia's cultural, natural, and monumental heritage closer to students and help them understand the history of the town.

During school hours and throughout the academic year, students from Tierno Galvan and Isabel La Catolica schools as well as the Laurel de la Reina, Trevenque and Trevenque institutes take part in these guided tours. They are accompanied by technicians from La Zubia, who help to explain the rich heritage of La Zubia.

The Water Route includes the ditches. / IDEAL

Daniel Aguilera (Councilor for Tourism) explains that the initiative was started a few years back and that there are many itineraries that City Council organizes throughout the school year. The educational program is a huge success, allowing students to learn about the major monuments in the city. We visited La Zubia's Arab Baths in medieval times. Isabel La Catolica arrived in La Zubia in the same period. For that, we visited the Convent of San Luis. He explains the history of the conversion of an Arab Zubia into a Christian Zubia during the visit to the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption.

The Water Route is another option, where schoolchildren can discover elements that are related to La Zubia's water: from the Arab era ditches to the pools and crops to traditional water trades like the ditches and hemp to esparto. It also includes the Barranco de la Negra aqueducts, which are the oldest pillars of the municipality.

Daniel Aguilera explains, "Similarly, we launched from the City Council a didactic itinerary for the Natural Park, the Prehistory, and La Zubia. Through which our schoolchildren tour the ravines and caves, and learn about La Zubia's past through the local fauna, flora, and take a tour through the old farmhouses.

The City Council has included educational activities in all its itineraries. These include drawing Alpujarra rugs and weaving hemp for an Espadrille. The Councilor for Tourism explains that there are also theatrical performances, gymkhanas, poetry readings about La Zubia, a workshop of cave paintings, Argaric vases made with clay, comics, and even stamping.

Puri Lopez, La Zubia's mayor, says that there are "hundreds of schoolchildren who have gotten to understand it better through these educational itineraries." She also recalls that the Department of Tourism has launched a special itinerary to meet exceptional women in La Zubia's history or traditional trades.
