Cordoba's Remarkable History
Capital of the western world in the 11th century, Cordoba is not only a convenient stop in central Andalusia, but the essence of Spain. Roman, Jewish, Islamic and Castilian civilizations are captured in its streets, its monuments and its collective consciousness. Check our history section for a timeline. Intimately linked with the city's history and identity is the Mosque of Cordoba (la Mezquita), now Cordoba's Cathedral and one of Spain's most visited attractions. Both the Mosque-Cathedral and Cordoba's Historic Center are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The sights of sounds of Andalusia: A tourist's delight
But there's more to Cordoba than just the Mezquita. It is a city which is meant to be explored--its sights, its smells and its tastes savored at leisure. A little square trickling with a fountain, an open doorway revealing a peaceful courtyard or a balcony overflowing with bougainvilleas await just steps away from the hurried itineraries of coach tours.
