A beautiful city scenting with orange trees is located in Andalusia, south Spain - Cordoba (Córdoba in Spanish). The city is protected by UNESCO. Tourists are lured in for its Arabic architecture originating around the year 1000. The city was an important part of Islamic cutlure back then.
Malaga (correct Spanish spelling is Málaga) is the second largest city in Andalusia. It is situated on the Mediterranean coastline. It is a center of the famous Costa del Sol resort.
Last Friday, we got some taste of one of the best theme parks in Spain. We continue in our tour there today.
There are many large and small theme parks scattered across Europe. We spent last three weeks at Europa-Park situated on the German-French borderline. Today we move 1200 in the southwest direction and land in Catalonia, Spain.
I walk in the park around Museum Prado. It is the temple of the art. Yet even the greatest of the art enthusiasts would get tired after couple of hours.
From old fortress of San Servando I look deep down to a canyon between the rocks where the Tajo River flows. I admire the vista from the rock surrounded with the wall.
On my road from Cádiz to Toledo, I spent couple of days in Lisbon. I think I really deserve some comfort and a shower. Thus, I would live in a hostel this time.
It is time to move on in the direction to Cádiz. Everybody recommended me to see it. So why not?
Cordoba was the richest city of the West and the center of Islamic culture. First emirs resided in Seville. In the sixth year of Arab occupation (716) Emir Alhor moved his court to Cordoba. The ruled as deputies of the caliph of Damask. They were military warlords subordinated to the might of the House of Umayyad.
I believe I will visit Granada one more time at some point in the future. Yet now I head to Málaga and Córdoba.
