From the picturesque allies of its historic quarter to the vestiges of Islamic splendor its stunning Mezquita (Mosque), Córdoba is an intriguing city that deserves every bit of its World Heritage Site status.
Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River and in the heart of Andalucía, Córdoba boasts all the luxuries of a modern, forward-looking metropolis: nightlife, shopping, restaurants, transportation. However, this gem of a city manages to find the perfect balance between embracing the future and celebrating the cultures and civilizations of its history. Under the Roman Empire, Córdoba was the capital of Hispania Ulterior before going on to become the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate under the Muslim Empire that ruled Spain for hundreds of years.
You'll find the majority of the cultural and tourist attractions in Córdoba's Judería, the city's historic Jewish neighborhood. A maze of tiny, winding lanes will have you discovering typical Andalucían white-washed homes, the aroma of orange blossoms, flowers spilling out from their bright flower pots and a mix of Christian and Islamic sights.
This old quarter fans out from the stunning Mezquita, which served as the Great Mosque under Córdoba's time as the Muslim caliphate capital. Once Córdoba eventually succumbed to the forces of the Christian Reconquest back in the 15th century, a full cathedral was plopped right in the middle of the mosque's characteristic sea of red and white striped arches. How's that for an indication of its size?
