Cordoba, one of the most important cities in the history of Spain.
Cordoba was one of the greatest cities of the medieval world. The Mezquita is one of the wonders of Europe.
Very few places in the world can boast about having been the capital of a Roman province (Hispania Ulterior), the capital of an Arab State (Al-Andalus) and a Caliphate. Such splendor is palpable in the intellectual wealth of this city, that has seen the birth of figures like Seneca, Averroes, and Maimonides. The historic quarter of Cordoba is a beautiful network of small streets, alleys, squares and whitewashed courtyards arranged around the Mezquita, which reflects the city's prominent place in the Islamic world during medieval times.
All its attractions are accessible on foot, and it’s a joy to wander among the squares of the old town, and the alley-thin streets of the old Jewish quarter, the Juderia.
