A day in Córdoba

In my previous post I was telling you about the perfect 3-day city trip in Seville. But while you're there, why not discover Córdoba, which I experienced as the Spanish version of Disney's Agrabah! Today many parts of it are in ruin, but in the Middle Ages this was one of the greatest cities in the world. The city was ruled by several cultures over the years and had its glory days under the Islamic rule. This is when its main attraction was built: the Mezquita. Córdoba is less touristy than Seville or Granada and it is relatively small, which makes it a perfect day trip destination.

Seville Citytrip

When we booked our trip to Seville a couple of months ago, I didn't know what to expect. But boy did I fall in love with this city! The architecture and the streets are so beautiful I almost overheated my camera. The capital of Andalusia has one of the largest historical centers in Europe and is very intriguing due to the different populations that left their mark on the city, especially the Moor, which explains the "One Thousand and One Nights" feel of certain parts of it. You can easily do everything by foot and even in November the weather is great. And then there is the tapas! What more could you ask for?
