The beautiful city of Cordoba was once the largest metropolis in Western Europe. Remarkably, during its history the city has been capital of a Roman Province (Hispana Ulterior), an Arab state (Al-Andalus) and an Islamic state (Caliphate of Cordoba).
Cordoba is world-renowned today for its magnificent mosque, or Mezquita, which was first built in the 8th century and re-consecrated as a cathedral in the 13th century. The Old Town, which surrounds the Mezquita, is a narrow maze of haphazardly winding medieval streets. Within the Old Town are many of the city's main attractions, including the beautiful Roman Bridge and the fascinating Jewish Quarter.
