Cordoba: City Exploring
Settled during Roman times and a regional capital for the Moors, Cordoba is a delightful town with a few key sites including the Alcazar and Mezquita, a 1000 year old mosque, turned Catholic church. We spent two days here which was plenty of time to take in the sites, see a Flamenco show, stroll the streets and enjoy a few parades. For a hidden gem, walk the back alleyways where we found beautiful gardens and very proud owners willing to share their knowledge.here.
The church/mosque is an interesting juxtaposition of decorative styles, belief systems, ideas of what makes a house of God and how one honors Him there. Click here for ticketing information and hours.
This bell tower is built over a minaret which belted out the call to prayer during Moorish rule.
