Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba
The Great Mosque was built in 785 on the orders of Abd ar-Rahman I. At that time, Cordoba was the capital of Al-Andalus and was expanded many times. The ornately decorated mosque was converted into a cathedral by 1236 after the Christians reconquered Cordoba and has well-preserved Islamic architecture and history.

Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs
This historic fortress was once the residence of Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon. It was built in 1328 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is home to iconic gardens and magnificent courtyards.

Medina Azahara
This palatial city on the outskirts of Cordoba remains an important archaeological site. It was first built in the 10th century by Abd ar-Rehman III., who declared himself caliph and built a new city as a symbol of his rule. It was the capital of the Cordoba Caliphate and served as the centre of government.

Roman bridge of Córdoba
The historic Cordoba Bridge was built in the early 1st century and has been reconstructed several times over the years. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it crosses the Guadalquivir River and offers magnificent views of the sunrise over the river.

Torre de la Calahorra
This large tower served as a defensive building and is the oldest in the city. It was built by the Muslims to protect the city from attacks and was extensively rebuilt after the reconquest. The imposing tower attracts many tourists, but also houses a museum with Jewish, Christian and Muslim artefacts from Cordoba's history. It also shows the history of Andalusia, as it was once the leading society for science and pioneering.
