are some of my favorite pics from a trip to Cordoba and
Southern/Central Spain. Cordoba was once the capital of
the Western Umayyad Caliphate. In the 10th century it
was one of the largest cities in the world and one of
the world's major centres for advanced learning and
studies. Historically, Cordoba is seen as one of the key
cities that enabled knowledge transfer to Western
Europe, ushering in the Renaissance.
