Cordoba Tourist / Tourism
Cordoba is one of Spain's premier city break destinations, attracting crowds all year round. This is largely due to it being the capital of Spain during the Moorish (Arab) occupation of the peninsular, and under their rule is thought to have been the largest and most advanced city in the world. The Caliphate of Cordoba as it came to be known produced great architectural achievements, many of which still pepper Cordoba's inner city area. The result is a heritage unique from that of other European cities, drawing crowds from all over the world. People come to see the remnants of a lost empire, many famous monuments, and to savour in the ambience, cuisine, and other delights of this beautiful city.
It is difficult to know where to begin when summarising Cordoba's attractions. However one of it's most visited attractions is the Mesquita (Cordoba's mosque); which is one of the most beautiful examples of Moorish design in all of Spain. Some of it's elements, such as it's Mihrab, are considered to be among the best in the world. Though portions of its design have been compromised by later Christian architects, the building still remains a national wonder and is well worth visiting.
