Cordoba in Spain

Visit Cordoba

Introduction

The Moors made Cordoba the capital of al-Andalus. And in the tenth century, Cordoba was considered to be one of the great cities of the world for its culture and its amazing architecture. Although Cordoba has seen many twists and turns of fortune since then, the architecture casts its spell still and there's culture enough to satisfy even the most avid academic.

The main draw is the Mezquita, an extraordinary combination of mosque and cathedral - the cultural history of this region embodied in the building. First a mosque, founded in 785, all arches and intricacy, the building then had a rather remarkable cathedral placed right in the middle of it in the 16th century. It really is Cordoba's must-see.

Cordoba is also the only city in Andalusia that has a surviving medieval synagogue, located in the picturesque Juderia, the old Jewish quarter to the north of the Mezquita. This maze of medieval lanes is full of distinctive whitewashed buildings with flower-filled window boxes. Alongside the myriad historical treasures, Cordoba offers much modern fun in the way of its numerous notable restaurants, busy bars and vibrant nightlife.
