Very few places in the world can boast about having been the capital of a Roman province (Hispania Ulterior), the capital of an Arab State (Al-Andalus) and a Caliphate. Such splendor is palpable in the intellectual wealth of this city, that was the birthplace of many outstanding figures such as Seneca, Averroes, and Maimonides. The historic quarter of Cordoba is incredibly fascinating and full of narrow streets, alleys, squares and whitewashed courtyards arranged around the Mezquita, which reflects the city’s prominent place in the Islamic world during medieval times.
The Mosque of Cordoba or Cathedral of Cordoba is a building of Cordoba that was begun to be built in the year 785/786. It is considered one of the most important monuments of the Islamic and Christian world. After the Reconquest, in 1238, the mosque became a Renaissance cathedral, merging it with the Muslim temple.
