CORDOBA AT A GLIMPSE
Cordoba is a city with unique and multicultural heritage. Its history falls far back on the timeline. The city was founded by the Romans due to its strategic location on the Guadalquivir River and over time it became an important port town. One of the main landmarks today are the mighty bridge crossing the river built by the Romans, now called "El Puente Romano".

Not many people know that Cordoba was one of the most important European capitals in 11th century. People of the most different cultures and religions - Jews, Muslims and Christians - lived here together in peace for centuries.

Fortunately, many remnants of the city’s golden age, the time when it became the capital of the Moorish kingdom of El-Andalus, still stand today. During that time the construction of the Great Mosque began. When the city was reconquered by the Christians in 1236, the new rulers of the city were so delighted by the mosque’s beauty that they didn’t destroy it, instead they built a cathedral among the mosque’s rows of arches and columns, creating the extraordinary church-mosque we see today.

What is more, the city’s whole historic center was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and to immerse yourself in the extraordinary culture and sights of Cordoba don’t miss the following highlights:
  • Cordoba's Great Mosque and Cathedral (third-biggest mosque in the world, construction started in the year 785)
  • Puente Romano (the Roman bridge)
  • Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos (1328 Palace of the Christian Kings)
  • La Judería (The Jewish medieval quarter)
  • La Plaza del Potro (a picturesque square)
Dive into the culturally diverse legacy of a city that has one of the most warmest summers in Spain.
