Planning to visit Cordova in the future? It was over six month now since we visited this lovely city of Andalusia in Spain. Called as Cordoba in Spanish, this city has a lot of things to offer to all its guests and visitors.
Sad to say, it has no airport to serve for passengers who wish to fly there. If you are especially coming from England and wish to visit Cordova, you can check the airports near it. You can either fly to Seville, Malaga or Madrid. Easyjet for example are offering cheap fares from London Stansted to Malaga airport. Depending on your point of departure from the UK, you can also check British Airways flights to any destination in Spain.
Here are some of the things to do and see when in Cordova.
Visit the Mezquita
This is the most famous attraction in Cordoba and really a must-see. I was amazed by its architecture especially its interior parts. This was a mosque turned into a Catholic Cathedral. This building is full of history and beauty.You will marvel its arts and architecture once you visit it.

Called as Puente Romano in Spanish, this bridge crosses the Guadalquivir River. it was once the main crossing over the river. It was built in the early 1st century BC during the period of the Roman rule in Cordova. This is a very interesting work of engineering during those times.

Translated as "Street of the Flowers" in English, this narrow street with its beautiful tiny square is always full of flowers. From there, you can have a nice view of the tower of Mezquita.

This is not really a big building. Let's say, it is small but beautiful. It is said to be one of the three remaining synagogue in Spain. It was built in 1315. You can find lovely Mudejar decorative plaster on the walls inside this small square room with high ceilings.
Witness some of its famous events like the Semana Santa, Carnaval, Cruces de Mayo and many events that are taking place every year.
Religious structures such as the historical churches of San Miguel, San Agustin, San Andres, San Lorenzo, San Pablo and many more are also worth to visit.
