The pleasures of Al-Andalus
Cordoba is an open door to Spain’s past and the world of Al-Andalus. In other words, the rich legacy of the Islamic society of 10th-century Spain. As well as its wonderful architectural heritage, the lifestyle of Al-Andalus with its appreciation of sensory pleasures is still intensely felt in many cities of Andalusia, such as Cordoba, Seville and Granada.Look up to see the impressive decorative mosaics on many of the historic buildings. Breathe in the floral fragrances of every corner of the city. Enjoy the mix of Andalusian flavours with the spices, nuts, orange blossom water and dates typical of Arab cuisine. Relax in the clouds of a steam bath. Purify mind and body with a mint tea after a massage. All of this is possible in Cordoba.
