I   had   never   been   to   Córdoba   before   my   memorable   visit   to   the   city   on Thursday   24th   November 2016. Take   the   toolbar   links   below   to   read   about   my   experiences   whilst   there   in   “My Andalucia”, and also general information contained in the Cordoba” document from the lower toolbar below. This   was   a   breathtaking   and   remarkable   city   -   The   Mosque-Cathedral   of   Cordoba   is   the   most important   monument   of   all   the   Western   Islamic   world,   and   one   of   the   most   amazing   in   all   the world. The buildings date back to the 10th century when Córdoba reached its zenith.

T he   Roman   Bridge   reflects   little   of   its   Roman   roots,   owing   to   frequent   reconstruction   over   many decades.   In   the   centre   of   the   eastern   side's   stone   handrails   there   is   a   little   shrine   to   St   Raphael,   at whose   feet   the   devout   burn   candles.   It   is,   of   course,   unlikely   that   much   of   the   original   structure stands.   The   present   structure   is   a   medieval   reconstruction,   though   the   19th-century   cobbled   paving does   give   a   Roman   feel.   There   is   an   irregular   pattern   to   the   16   arches   in   size   and   abutment protections.   You   can   walk   over   the   Roman   Bridge   in   either   direction.   The   Roman   Bridge   is   close   to the great Mosque and leads to Torre de Calahorra at south end.
