After Granada and Alhambra, we drove to our last destination in Andalucia, Cordoba. Originally a Roman settlement, in the eight century, Cordoba was conquered by the Moors and become the capital of the Calipahte of Cordoba. Today, the old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is most famous for the Mosque of Cordoba, known as the Mezquita.

The Alhambra was originally constructed as a small fortress in AD 889 on the remains of Roman fortifications, and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-13th century by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls.
