  2. 2. Let’s take a tour of Spain and visit some of the places that Miss Lake and the students visited . We will see the Pyrenees Mountains and travel to Toledo and Madrid. We will visit the Toledo Cathedral, the Prado Museum, and Plaza Puerto de Sol. We will look at paintings of El Greco, Goya and Picasso. We will go to a bullfight. Finally, we will learn some Spanish words and customs and sample some Spanish foods. Then you’ll make a travel postcard about Spain using Microsoft Publisher.
  3. 3. Pyrenees Mountains The Pyrenees Mountains form the natural border between France and Spain, and completely engulf the tiny nation of Andorra. The mountains extend for about 270 miles from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean Sea. The highest point is Pico de Aneto at 11,168 ft. (3,404m) Additional mountain ranges found on the Iberian Peninsula include the Cantabrian, Sierra De Gata and Sierra Guadarrama in the north and central, and the Sierra Morena and Sierra Nevada in the south of Spain .

  4. 4. Toledo is located in the Castille region of central Spain, 42 miles southwest of Madrid and 85 miles southeast of Avila. It has a population of about 75,000 and is a very popular tourist destination, especially as a day trip from Madrid. The Alcazar and Cathedral dominate the picturesque skyline of Toledo.

  7. 7. Prado Museum Prado Play is a fun site on the Museo Nacional del Prado home website. Play the games to learn more about the paintings on display at the museum. The Prado Museum is the largest art gallery in the world. It also has sculptures, drawings, coins and other works of arts, but its large collection of paintings has given it fame worldwide. It houses more than 8,600 paintings, of which less than 2,000 are shown because of lack of space. Many museums throughout the world have less art in their halls than the Prado Museum has in storage.
