Description

Córdoba, also known as Cordova, is a city in Andalusia, Spain. Formerly one of the world's most populated countries, after a sharp decrease in population during the Renaissance, it is now a moderately sized city and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Human inhabitation of Córdoba can be traced back to 42 000 BCE.

It was taken over by the Roman Empire and then became the capital of an Islamic Kingdom during the Middle Ages. Due to this, strong Muslim influence is clearly seen throughout the city. Córdoba became a centre of education under the Muslim rulers, who built countless libraries, schools and universities. Today, Córdoba is considered one of Europe’s Intellectual Centres.

Córdoba offers a number of attractions to fascinate first-time visitors. Popular places-of-interest include the Great Cordoba Mosque, Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, Roman Bridge, Medina Azahara, Jewish Quarter, Palacio de Viana, Museo de Bellas Artes, Julio Romero de Torres Museum, Palacio de la Merced and the Archaeological Museum. 

Nearby Airports

Though the Córdoba Airport is the main airport in Córdoba, it currently does not serve any commercial flights. Instead, travellers should opt for flying via some of the airports in near-by cities such as Seville, Málaga or Madrid.

Halal Restaurants

Córdoba is home to a fair share of Halal restaurants. Popular spots include Hammam Restaurante Teteria, El Patio Andaluz, El Sultán, Laorkebab and KebabHut. However it is recommended that you enquire with the restaurant owners about the preparation of food and the availability of Halal menus prior to dining.

Mosques

In addition to the Great Mosque of Cordoba (which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Córdoba is home to a few mosques. Visitors may also go to a few of the more prominent mosques in the country that are located at the near-by towns of Seville, Granada or Malaga.
