Cordoba in pictures!

Are you looking for a sun-kissed holiday, devouring tapas & sangria while driving through varying landscapes? Then it’s about time you plan a road-trip to Andalusia.

Cordoba, is a city in the Andalucian province of Spain, founded by Romans. It was significant under the Roman province and later went on to play an important part in the Byzantine empire. Soon after, it fell under the Islamic rule. This has led to extensive historic heritage in Cordoba with a flavor of different empires. The historic center is a UNESCO declared World Heritage Site. The most important sights are the Great Mosque of Cordoba, the Roman bridge built on River Guadalquivir river, the Roman Wall, Remains of the Roman Temple, the Forum, Amphiteatre, Alcazar’s palace and the Jewish quarter.

Cordoba is best described through pictures and we hope the below photos will definitely get you packing.
