As capital of the vast Caliphate of Cordoba the city was Europe's most populous and also its greatest centre of learning. Prior to that Cordoba was chosen by the Romans as capital of Hispania Uterior. Understandable then that the whole central area is now declared a UNESCO World Heritage site!
The Great Mosque, the largest Islamic edifice in the western world, is undoubtedly the main attraction. Truly breathtaking in both style and scale, here you can see the passing of empires with vestiges of Visigothic and Moorish times as well as the stamp of the Reconquista in the form of the Renaissance cathedral nave built in the heart of the original Islamic mosque.
But there's plenty more besides; get lost in the labyrinth lanes of the Jewish Quarter and don't miss the beautiful patios literally festooned with potted geraniums. Visit the Roman walls and bridge or the archaeological remains at Medina Azahara
