Today I spent together with Felix and Nacho a fantastic day in Cordoba.

From the railway station in Cordoba we first walked to the Mezquita.

The Mesquita

The Cathedral and former Great Mosque of Córdoba is World Heritage Site. Originally, it was a pagan temple and later a Visigothic Christian church. The Umayyad Moors then used the building as a mosque and later built a new mosque on this site. After the reconquest in 1236 the mosque was christianised. However, alterations were only made about 200 years later when Bishop Alonso Manrique let a cathedral to be built inside the mosque.

The Romand Bridge

Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos

Domestic courtyards like the ones displayed below are very typical for Cordoba.

During our day in Cordoba we enjoyed some great food (like tortillas and raciones) and drinks at several different very nice places.

Cristo de los Faroles (the christ of the streetlamps)
