Since La Mezquita, one of the most magnificent Islamic structures in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this intriguing Andalusian city continues to be a sort of western Mecca.
Plan A Trip To Cordoba
Cordoba is an Andalusian city with a magnificent history. When the Moors took control of it in the eighth century, it was the most populous city in the world and in the tenth century it developed into a major hub for learning. The Mezquita, a mosque-cathedral that dominates the skyline from all angles, is one of the many magnificent examples of Islamic architecture that can be found throughout the city. Several Roman-era buildings are among the top attractions in Cordoba Tour Packages. The city is renowned for its exquisite flowers and skillfully designed patios, which are highlighted by a patio festival in May.
Must Visit Places in Cordoba
The Calahorra Tower is another Cordoban structure that reflects Islamic architecture. The horseshoe-shaped tower, which can be found at the southern end of the Roman Bridge, is Cordoba's oldest fortification. The Moors constructed it to defend the city from invaders. An arched gate and two towers were its original structure; King Henry of Castile erected the third tower in the fourteenth century.
One of Cordoba's busiest streets is the charming Calleja de las, Flores. However, it passes through the city's Jewish Quarter, it resembles a tiny alley more than a street. Visitors entering the lane are greeted by colorful pots, window boxes and elaborate balconies that swing from homes on Cordoba Packages. A modest plaza marks the Calleja de las Flores' conclusion. Not only are the brightly colored flowers a terrific backdrop for photos, but the Mezquita also makes an amazing foreground.
The Mezquita's final product is a consequence of economical efforts by several religions that at one point dominated Cordoba. A Visigoth cathedral was built to replace the old Roman temple. When Moors took over the city in the eighth century, it was turned into a mosque. This revered Muslim pilgrimage site once housed an authentic copy of the Koran as well as a bone from Mohammed.
What to Buy in Cordoba
It is very possible that you will want to purchase at least one or two souvenirs to give to your loved ones if you choose to visit this lovely town. But keep in mind, not all mementos are created equal. Choose something more distinctive and genuine rather than the typical T-shirts and fridge magnets.
Since the Middle Ages, Cordoba has been a leader in the manufacture of silver, even on a European scale. At the moment, the so-called "Parque Joyero de Cordoba" (Cordoba Jewellery Park-Business Area), where 70 percent of Spanish jewelry is created and exported around the world, is home to more than 1,000 businesses and 15,000 workers employed in the jewellery sector.

Travel Tips For Travelers
