Cordoba in Details
Historically, Cordoba has been a capital city for the Iberian groups that originally populated the peninsula and the Roman Empire that controlled it later. Also, it was one of the capitals of the Arabs when they invaded the peninsula. At this time, Cordoba was not only the most densely populated city in the region but also the most culturally diverse. It was even the center of the latest scientific research of the time. Due to its Arabic past, Cordoba hosts the Great Mosque of Cordoba which has turned into the symbol of the city.
