Cordoba is a city of 315,000 that presents Spain’s long history as a Muslim and Christian country.
The old city vibrates with cafes, restaurants, museums, landmarks and narrow streets.
The ancient Mezquita (8th century Mosque, now a church) is an architectural wonder
with its cross influences of Islam and Christianity.

and later was the headquarters of the bloody Inquisition from 1490 to 1821.
Today it’s a peaceful garden with manicured trees, formal gardens and fountains.
