Cordoba, City of the Caliphs

Culture and History tour in Malaga

Tour Price : upon request Duration : approx 2 hours Languages: English, German

It is believed that Cordoba is the place where the Moorish page of history in Spain began. At the beginning of the 8th century thousands of Moors came from the northern part of Africa and within quite a short period of time they managed to conquer almost the whole Iberian Peninsula. Cordoba used to be the capital of their huge empire and the heart of the Islamic World in Spain. It is worth noting that the Moors were not the only ones to influence the formation and development of Cordova. It used to be a Roman and Iberian city as well, till the Middle Ages when the Moors came.

Any private guide in Spain would definitely advice you to visit this wonderful place! The Old Town of Cordoba contains countless traces of the times when the city was the capital during the Roman Republic, and then during the Roman Empire, and finally during the Islamic Caliphate of Cordoba. You would be surprised, but according to the statistics Cordoba was the most populous city in the world in the 10th-11th centuries. During those times Cordoba was the intellectual center of the whole Europe.

As your private guide in Malaga I will share with the most interesting stories linked to the history and culture of this ancient city. This private tour in Spain is designed especially for the history connoisseurs and devotees. It is worth noting that the old town of Cordoba was added to the UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites. We will definitely visit the Great Mosque of Cordoba, which is considered to be the symbol of the whole city and its most important building.

We will also take a look at what is left from the times of the Roman Empire: the Roman Temple, Mausoleum, the Theatre, the Colonial Forum, an amphitheater and other sites. In the end of the tour we will make a stop in the Jewish Quarter and take a look at its most popular attractions.
