Travel to Cordoba to enrich yourself in history.
Cordoba is absolutely loved by many people for the vibes of the city and its people who are so laid back and happy.
You’ll feel that they really carry on the Andalusian way of life. Walking through the streets of Cordoba is like going from one period in history to another. This city in Andalucia has a unique wealth of monuments.
Cordoba was founded by the Romans, and due to its strategic importance as the highest navigable point of the Guadalquivir River, it became a port city of great importance, used for shipping Spanish olive oil, wine and wheat back to Ancient Rome. In the Middle Ages it became the capital of an Islamic caliphate. Here you’ll find the 3-rd largest mosque in the world, that is now a catholic cathedral, beautifully preserved, very impressive in scale and unusual in its incorporation of different cultures and religions. La Mezquita is the largest temple to be built in Muslim Spain. Nearby the Mezquita is the old Jewish quarter. Here you can visit a synagogue or stroll through the narrow streets lined by whitewashed houses with flowered balconies. Getting lost in the old town of Córdoba is a true pleasure because it has retained its charm despite the growing number of tourist shops. Walk through the Jewish quarter and you will catch tantalizing glimpses of flower-filled patios with tiled fountains.
