Cordoba

The train from Madrid let us out on the north side of the city. Across the street from the station, we caught a local bus to el centro de la ciudad and got off at the Guadalquivir River.

Cordoba

The oldest part of Cordoba is dominated by the walls (below left) of the Mezquita, an 11th century mosque in the middle of which a cathedral was built at the turn of the 16th century by the Christians after they defeated the Moors.

Cordoba

In Cordoba, we visited the Patio de las Naranjas, where orange trees are planted within the walls of the Mezquita. Then we went to the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, another Moorish site that was converted after the fall of the empire. Then we saw the Mezquita-Cathedral itself.
