CORDOBA CITY

The square Cordoba

 

Cordoba boasts some of Spain’s finest scenery. Flat fields covered in almonds and olive trees, rugged mountains covered in pine trees, ancient castles, major cities, small villages and medium sized towns.

All of these a reminder of how this fascinating country has willingly adopted the history and cultures of its many invaders to grow into a unique member of the European family.

Nowhere in Spain will you feel the presence of this powerful Spanish culture than in the ancient city of Cordoba.

The origins of Cordoba are lost in the mists of time. It´s position by the river and the fertile farming land of the Campiña made it a perfect place for the first prehistoric settlements.

You can see the influences left on Cordoba by it´s various invaders. Cordoba was conquered by the Romans in the 2nd century AD and left a great number of monumental buildings.

Cordoba Roman BridgeThere is a beautiful, Roman bridge right in the historic Centre of Cordoba. This was built in early 1st century BC acrross the Guadalquivir river. 

Until Granada, this was home to the western world’s most important Muslim population.

Some of the worlds first known universities and medical schools made this a desirable place to live under Moorish occupation patios. 

A huge mosque built here was later taken over by the Christians, who rather unusually allowed a large part of this rather beautiful building to merge into a cathedral which they built on the same site,giving Cordoba the gift of one of the most unusual and impressive buildings in the world, known as the Mezquita.

AlcazerNearby another beautiful building the Alcazar, graces the town.

Between these two outstanding buildings charming cobbled streets wind amongst whitewashed buildings, which are home to the famously beautiful Cordoba patios. 

More than that, however, is that Cordoba is also a world heritage site. It has such an impressive culrural and momumental patrimony,and a strategic position near the river Guadalquivir, that the legacy left by it´s many settlers meant Cordoba was always considered a Privileged place.

The world heritiage site award aims to ptotect, identify and conserve cultural or natural heritage considered to be particularly valuable.

Andalucia

 

Andalusia is an autonomous community of Spain and recognized as a nationality in the preamble of its new autonomy statute. It is the most populous (8,370,975 inhabitants in 2010) and the second largest, in terms of land area, of the 17 autonomous communities of the Kingdom of Spain. Its capital and largest city is Seville.The region is divided into eight provinces: Huelva, Seville, Cádiz, Córdoba, Málaga, Jaén, Granada and Almería.

Andalusia is in the south of the Iberian peninsula, immediately south of the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha; west of the autonomous community of Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea; east of Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean; and north of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Morocco, and the Atlantic Ocean. The small British overseas territory of Gibraltar shares a three-quarter-mile land border with the Andalusian province of Cádiz at the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Andalusia has three major geographic subregions. In the north, the mountainous Sierra Morena separates Andalusia from the plains of Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha on Spain's Meseta Central. South of that, one can distinguish Upper Andalusia, generally the Baetic System, from Lower Andalusia with its Baetic Depression of the valley of the Guadalquivir.

The name Andalusia traces back to the Arabic language Al-Andalus. As well as Muslim and Romani influences, the region's history and culture have been influenced by the earlier Iberians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths, all of whom preceded the Muslims, as well as the Castilian and other Christian North Iberian nationalities who conquered and repopulated the area in the latter phases of the Reconquista. There was also a relatively large Sephardic Jewish presence.

Since the Industrial Revolution, Andalusia has been an economically poor region in comparison with the rest of Spain and the European Union at large. However, the growth of the community especially in the sectors of industry and services was above average in Spain and higher than many communities in the eurozone. The region has, however, a rich culture and a strong cultural identity. Many cultural phenomena that are seen internationally as distinctively Spanish are largely or entirely Andalusian in origin. These include flamenco, bullfighting, and certain Moorish-influenced architectural styles.
