Cordoba has much more to offer than the great monuments that it hosts…When I was in the city located in the depression on the Guadalquivir and at the foot of the Sierra Morena I has been impressed very much by the profusion of details that a less attentive look can lose.
The rich facets of the façades; the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious signs; and the shields and heraldic badge which are records of a great past. The architecture of the Andalusian patios of Roman and Muslim tradition with its rich gardens adorned by fountains to enliven the strong heat of the Andalusian summers are proof of the diversity of cultures. The plates of the innumerable restaurants, hotels and hostels are an invitation to enjoy the Andalusian hospitality and savor the rich and diverse gastronomy of different shades.
The impressive Caballerizas Reales with their ample courtyards are witness to the tradition and the magic of the pure Spanish race of the Andalusian horse. The colors of the flower beds of the gardens and the Calleja de las Flores embellish the city. The statues give the tone of the legacy of the great personalities who have lived in the narrow streets of the city.
All these details are part of the compendium of past and modernity of this city of the richest Andalusian tradition.
