The walled city of Cordoba is an important stop along the tourist trail in Spain. It is the home of one of the country’s most impressive sights, La Mezquita, a flamboyant mosque which was modified, when the Moors were driven from Spain, by the erection of a Roman Catholic Cathedral within its confines.
What remains of the mosque is still the most intriguing part of the structure. The candy-striped arches are stunning.
Other sections of the interior are equally attractive
while the exterior features a tall bell tower and a courtyard of orange trees.
But Cordoba is more than La Mezquita. Check out the lovely Plaza de Corredera
and the impressive Alcazar..
