The Flowery Houses of Cordoba - Beautiful!



Cordoba, the City of Flowers

Cordoba is an ancient city in the south of Spain, the capital of Moorish Spain. Cordoba is a virtual maze of winding streets, modern and antique merchandise, dotted by colorful coffee shops, that at night move to the spontaneous beat of flamenco dancing. Here visitors find the 'Calleja de las Flores' - the street of flowers!

The city is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir river, and its easy access to the mining resources of the Sierra Morena (coal, lead, zinc) satisfies the population's needs.

The city declined especially after Renaissance times. In the 18th century it was reduced to just 20,000 inhabitants. The population and economy started to increase only in the early 20th century.
