Cordoba is located in a depression on the banks of the Guadalquivir and at the foot of the Sierra Morena. It is the third largest and most populated city in Andalusia after Seville and Malaga. In its old town we can still contemplate buildings with architectural elements from when Cordoba was the capital of Hispania Ulterior in times of the Roman Republic, or the province of Betica during the Roman Empire and the Caliphate of Cordoba during the Muslim era, whose leaders ruled much of the Iberian Peninsula.
We will make a panoramic visit, starting by crossing the Roman Bridge and admiring the Tower of Calahorra before reaching the Old Town. Its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. Ten years earlier, in 1984, it had been the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba. We will visit this monument (entrance fees and local guide included), which was undoubtedly the most important monument in the Islamic West and one of the most amazing in the world. It is an ancient city with the second largest historic center in Europe. It is precisely here where most of the historic buildings of the city are located.
