Cordoba, Spain- lovely

January 23, 2011

Last weekend we went to Cordoba and were in awe. Our hotel was directly across the street from a mosque, which contains one of the most important cathedrals in Spain (mosque + cathedral, perhaps a bit strange). The architecture of the cathedral was like nothing I have ever seen. There was a tapas restaurant outside the mosque and people brought their tapas to the wall surrounding the mosque (the wall served as a table or seat). It was a unique dining experience. The food was delicious and cheap. We ate there four times in three days. To top the trip off, the weather was spring-like and the streets were lined with lemon and orange trees. I wanted to pick one to eat but street water probably doesn’t make tasty fruit. All in all, we saw the mosque etc, a very old synagogue, a palace, and a castle of the Christian monarchs. -bl
