Cordoba is not only the city with the most World Heritage Sites in the world, with four declarations for its Mezquita, the Judería, the Patios and Medina Azahara. But it is also a city full of history due to its millenary populations. To discover its monuments through its history is to enter fully into the exciting world of the History of Humanity. The birthplace of many great figures in this history, such as Seneca, Maimonides, Lucan, Góngora, Julio Romero de Torres, Juan de Mesa, Rafael Botí and Manolete. During the Caliphate of Cordoba it became the most inhabited, cultured and opulent city in Europe. So much so that since that time it has never ceased to be a cultural and artistic reference point on the old continent. Eternal Cordoba. And, of course, Cordoba is the ideal city for hosting exhibitions, for holding congresses or simply to get lost in its thousands of culinary delights, represented in its multitude of bars and restaurants. It has a gastronomy that has produced dishes such as salmorejo, flamenquín, rabo de toro or berenjenas fritas con miel. Cordoba’s most typical dishes reflect the christian, arab and jewish culinary inspiration. And it is in bars and restaurants where you can also taste the marvellous wines produced by the land, wines with the depth of nuances offered by Montilla and Moriles, which undoubtedly enrich the most exquisite palates with their exclusivity.
Its hypnotic effect rivals the placidity that its vision provokes and the spiritual intimacy that it brings to those who visit this UNESCO World Heritage monument.
Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos
In addition to its Mudejar-style halls and rooms, its numerous flowering gardens and fountains are outstanding, which gave rise to a unique and beautiful light and sound show that takes place on warm nights at Cordoba.
The Mudejar-style church is accessed through a courtyard that leads to the vestibule that precedes the highly decorated hall. Going up of stairs you can find a gallery, which was the place reserved for women and which is connected to the hall by three beautifully decorated balconies.
For more than a century, and coinciding with the city’s festivities in May, Cordoba has held its Festival de los Patios. In this festival, the Patios are open and exhibited to the public and the different houses that hold Patios compete to win the prizes. Even though the season of Patios is the spring, the City Council’s organises some visits to the Patios during the rest of the year.
It is made up of many rooms and buildings, including its mosque and the so-called “rich hall”. But there are also many aristocratic residences, military areas, fountains and gardens. Everything was built with a quality of materials and an overwhelming luxury. That was due the aim of Abderramán III to show his city as the sign of his power.
