The Multicultural Appeal of Cordoba
The ancient city of Cordoba has been rightfully recognized as a World Heritage Site as a tribute to its multi-cultural heritage. Cordoba has a rich history of being the capital of the Roman province of Hispania Ulterior and also the capital of the Arabian state Al-Andalus. Cordoba has also been the birthplace for geniuses like Seneca, Maimonides and Averroes and hence, it is also hailed as a centre of intellectual wealth. If you have a love for quaintness, you will simply adore going about the cris-crossing alleys, small streets, courtyards and squares round the Mosque-Cathedral. The splendor of the endless pillars and tunnels of this medieval structure is perfectly etched out in the silver colored metal fridge magnet depicting Cordoba. It measures 9x5.5x0.8 cm and is a must-have souvenir for all who have been to Cordoba.
