Cordoba

What you need to know before you go

    Cordoba is situated within southern Spain's Andalusia region. Steeped in history, the picturesque city served as both a Roman city and major Islamic hub in the Middle Ages, and much of its historic architecture remains intact. A stroll through the city's ancient cobblestone streets it a must. In among the bustle you'll discover hidden plazas, flower-adorned patios, and pretty, tiled fountains.

    While the modern part of the city brims with excellent restaurants, bars, and accommodations, for most visitors there's one place that matters more than all else: La Mezquita. Dating back to 784 AD, the sprawling mosque-church boasts a breathtaking mix of Moorish and Renaissance architecture.
