Córdoba is the result of twenty centuries of cultural occupancy. It was the capital of the Roman province of Hispania Ulterior Baetica in Julius Caesar's time. Conquered by the Visigoths, in the 6th century, Córdoba was finally captured by an Arab/Berber Muslim army and it became the capital of the independent Arab Muslim Emirate of Al-Andalus in 776 a.d., later a califate itself. Córdoba (Qurtubah) was one of the most advanced cities in the world as well as a great cultural, political, financial and economic center. The Great Mosque of Córdoba dates back to this time.
Actually, Córdoba has the second largest Old Town in Europe and the largest urban area in the world declared World Heritage by Unesco. Nowhere else in the world do the cultures of Christianity, Islam and Judaism stand side-by-side the way they do in Córdoba. The city charm, the architecture, the Cordovan cooking, the character of its people and the beauty of its women make Córdoba a very special host.
The pleasure of walking around the Jewish quarter, one of the most charming districts of Spain, involved by the scent of orange blossom, is one of the experiences that will endure in the memory of the visitor.
Córdoba offers many cultural and entertainment events throughout the year, Horse Fair, May Crosses, Courtyard Festival, Grilles and Balconies Contest, "La Feria", Holy Week, and many others.
Unforgettable summer nights with "Old Town Flamenco Nights"; casual outdoor flamenco music performances and many other activities.
In summer, the music takes center stage with Guitar Festival, considered one of the best in Europe and always with an amazing lineup.
