These buildings are more colorfully and elaborately decorated than sober tradition in Cordoba calls for, but have nevertheless long been part of the scenery in this key tourist area between the Mezquita and the river. The use of strong reds and yellows over large surfaces, delicate decorative elements and abundant painted tiles is generally typical of Seville, whereas Cordoba prides itself on its stoic Roman traditions.
