Carmen's Madinat al-Zahra tour was excellent. A friend recommended we visit this archeological site and we were thankful we did. Carmen has extensive knowledge of the history of the various Moslem groups who ruled in Andalusia and, in particular, of this palace city built in the 10th century. She was enthusiastic and engaging. In our drive to and from the site provided further history of Córdoba, i.e. the Roman coliseum discovered in the building of the AVE train station and built over.
