Very few places in the world can brag 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.
The Mosque of Cordoba or Cathedral of Cordoba is a building that was begun to be built in the year 785/786. It is considered one of the most important monuments of the Islamic and Christian world. After the Reconquest, in 1238, the mosque became a Renaissance cathedral, merging it with the Muslim temple. From its history, one can observe several constructive phases influenced by the reign of the different caliphs of each moment. Abderraman I, Abderraman II, Abderraman III, Alhaken II and Almanzor. Declared a World Heritage Site, today it is one of the most important monuments in Spain and in all Andalusian architecture.
