The group will be staying at the Posada de Zorita, a 5- minute walk from the excavation site. The posada is a small, rustic inn in the center of the medieval village Zorita de los Canes. Students will be sharing rooms, each with en- suite bathrooms and air conditioning. We can use the hotel’s laundry machine. Towels are provided. The hotel includes a general room with a television and a dining area where meals will be served. Wifi is also available.
Meals will be eaten at the hotel, and an arrangement will be made to provide us with a mid- workday snack. Lunch in Spain is the main meal, with breakfast and dinner being lighter. Please let us know if you are a vegetarian or if you require a special diet so that we may discuss the best way to accommodate your needs.
