See the capital city of roman Hispania and Al-Andalus.
We'll lounge beneath the pommegranates
palm trees, orange trees, under every lovely, leafy thing,
and walk along the vines, enjoy the splendid faces we will see
in a lofty palace built of noble stones.
(Ibn Gabirol, Cordoba, 11th century)
Where is Cordoba, the home of the sciences, and many a scholar whose rank was once lofty in it?
(Abu al-Baqa' al-Rundi d. 1285)
Córdoba has been one of the capital cities of the European and Mediterranean culture for almost one thousands years. From the second half of VIII century, during the following 300 years, the world's greatest cities in any sense were Baghdad, Córdoba, Constantinople and Damascus.
There you can find the roots of scientific renaissance, that later on spread to Europe through Al Andalus. Every corner of Cordoba and surroundings is a gem. See the pictures.
