The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Cordoba
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Cordoba is the jewel of Andalusia, an ancient city where three cultures have coexisted harmoniously for centuries: Christian, Jewish and Muslim. Founded before the arrival of the ancient Romans, Cordoba reached its heyday in the Early Middle Ages under the rule of powerful Moorish rulers. Recaptured from the Arabs by the Christians, it gradually turned from the brilliant capital of the Caliphate into a provincial, but not without charm.
Today Cordoba is a picturesque city literally drowning in the fragrance of spring flowers. Every year there is a competition for the most beautiful patio. Among the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter are hidden tablao taverns, where in the evenings dancers perform a fiery flamenco dance and guests are treated to hearty dishes of Andalusian cuisine.
