6 Top Things to Do in Córdoba, Cordoba, Spain (B)

Córdoba was once the Roman and Moorish capital of Spain with its roots in the banks of the Guadalquivir River in Andalusia, Spain. It has a rich cultural and architectural heritage and in medieval times it was one of the few places Jews, Muslims, and Christians lived together peacefully. Yet, it’s somewhat overshadowed by its neighbors, Granada and Seville and left out of many Spanish itineraries. I enjoyed my stay in the city so much, I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Spain and the South. Here’s my 6 Top Things to do in Córdoba I compiled after my stay.

The Mezquita is Córdoba’s most spectacular sight to behold. It was built as a mosque in 786 and turned into a cathedral after the Christians finally conquered Córdoba in the 1200s. It’s filled with a ‘forest’ of marble columns and typical Islamic red-and-white horseshoe arches, multiple domes, a mihrab (prayer niche) and various chapels. You can spend hours here admiring the detail and grandness of the construction, reminding just how important Córdoba was in ancient times. Be sure to take a look at the tranquil orange tree patio just outside the Mezquita. See all my photographs and more info about a visit to the Mezquita here. ......
