????????????????????????????????????

One building alone is enough to put Córdoba high on any traveller’s itinerary: the mesmerising multiarched Mezquita. One of the world’s greatest Islamic buildings, it’s a symbol of the worldly and sophisticated Islamic culture that flourished here more than a millennium ago when Córdoba was the capital of Islamic Spain, and Western Europe’s biggest and most cultured city. Once here, you’ll find there’s much more to this city: Córdoba is a great place for exploring on foot or by bicycle, staying and eating well in old buildings centred on verdant patios, diving into old wine bars, and feeling millennia of history at every turn. The narrow streets of the old Judería (Jewish quarter) and Muslim quarter stretch out from the great mosque like capillaries (to the northwest and northeast respectively), some clogged with tourist bric-a-brac, others delightfully peaceful.
