Day Visit to Cordoba

Cordoba, the Capital of the Caliphate. World Heritage.

☞Cordoba is a city with an impressive cultural and monumental patrimony.The origins of Cordoba are lost in the mists of time. Its position by the river and the fertile farming land of the ‘Campiña’ made it a per fect place for the first prehistoric settlements. However, it was not until the late Bronze Age (8th/9th century B.C.) when the first proper settlement was established. After the arrival of the Phoenicians and Greeks to the peninsula, the city became known as an important mining and commercial centre, since the River Guadalquivir was navigable back in those days. This facilitated to spread artistic and commercial products, and made an easier communication with the main surrounding cities.


Cordoba is a city with an impressive cultural and monumental patrimony. Its strategic position, near the River Guadalquivir, formerly navigable, and the
legacy of the different peoples who settled on its rich farming lands made Cordoba to be considered a privileged place. The UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) recognised in 1994 the universal importance of Cordoba’s historic legacy, and extended the title of World Heritage Site not only to the Mosque-Cathedral, but also to all the streets and buildings around it.

In December 2012, Cordoba was awarded a further accolade: The Festival of the Patios (Courtyards) was added to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity sites. Therefore, Cordoba now holds 3 inscriptions in the World Heritage List granted by the UNESCO: the Mosque-Cathedral (1984), the historical quarter surrounding it (1994) and the Festival of the Patios (2012). In addition, with the rest of Spain, it shares the titles of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity awarded to Flamenco (2010) and the Mediterranean Diet (2013).
