It was the ancient Great Mosque, turned into Cordoba’s Cathedral after the Catholic Reconquest.

El Puente Romano. The Roman Bridge is one of the visual landmarks of Cordoba; situated above the river Guadalquivir, connects the city with the countryside with its 16 arches. It was built by the Romans in the first century to replace the old wooden bridge.

The Juderia. Is the medieval Jewish quarter of Cordoba, a maze of streets and lanes that converge in the quaint Plaza del Potro, is located north east of the Mezquita and is one of the most visited areas of the city.

Medina Azahara. A few kilometers outside Cordoba lie the ruins of the city palace built in the 10th century by Caliph Abd al-Rahman as witness to his greatness. It was an amazing complex made of palaces, mosques, houses and gardens.
