Córdoba : Michelin's recommendations
Originally a Roman city, then capital of the Caliphate, Córdoba is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir, and remains an extraordinary cultural crossroads. Despite the hustle and bustle of its busy streets and its recent growth (310 000 inhabitants), it’s hard to believe that for centuries the city was the cultural and spiritual beacon of the Western world. The symbol of this lost splendour is the unforgettable Umayyad Mezquita, a masterpiece of Islamic architecture.
