We'll lounge beneath the pomegranates

in a lofty palace built of noble stones.

Where is Cordoba, the home of the sciences, and many a scholar whose rank was once lofty in it?
(Abu al-Baqa' al-Rundi d. 1285)
Córdoba has been one of the capital cities of the European and Mediterranean culture for almost one thousand years. From the second half of VIII century, during the following 300 years, the world's greatest cities in any sense were Baghdad, Córdoba, Constantinople, and Damascus.
There you can find the roots of the scientific renaissance, that later on spread to Europe through Al Andalus. Every corner of Cordoba and surroundings is a gem. See the pictures.
