Cordoba is one of the jewels of Spain and part of the “golden triangle” of Andalucia with Sevilla and Granada.
Although founded by the Romans, whose bridge still crosses the Guadalcavir River, it was the Moors who made the city one of the most important in medieval Europe.
Indeed from their arrival in the 8th their impact was – and has been profound. In its day this city of Al Andalus rivalred even the mighty Constantinople in spendour and grandeur reflected in the innumerable palaces and public buildings as well as some 300 mosques.
The arrival of the Christians in the 13th century, under Ferdinand III, brought a new era for the city turning Cordoba’s Great Mosque into a cathedral building the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos and the Torre Fortaleza de la Calahorra.
