The Three Cultures
Mosque-Cathedral, Jewish Quarter, Synagogue, Castle of the Catholic Monarchs & Roman Bridge.
The Mosque-Cathedral was named a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1984

The Festival of the Courtyards of Córdoba (Patios de Córdoba) was declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2012
This is perhaps the most complete tour of Córdoba, including all the major sites and taking in the lasting heritage of the three cultures which flourished here (Jewish, Muslim and Christian), with passing references to some of the great names from Córdoba, from Roman philosopher Seneca, Umayyad emirs and caliphs or Arab scholar Maimonides, to the poet Góngora, painter Julio Romero de Torres and Manolete the bullfighter.
“KEY POINTS: Learn about Córdoba’s history in depth, from its foundation in Roman times and the grandeur of the Umayyad dynasty to the changes which occurred in the Christian era and the traces of Sephardic culture.”
