Our first stop was at the famed Mezquita, a cathedral that has maintained its Moorish mosque architecture and beauty since the 10th century! We met this charming little old man in the garden (filled with the scent of lovely orange trees) who told us the history of the place; he didn't even work there, just wanted to talk to us.

We also went to the roman bridge and Puerta del Puente, a Renaissance gate at the foot of the bridge. The effect was beautiful.

Cordoba was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Spain. I think the photos speak for themselves. It was just beautiful, and we bought some great ceramic souvenirs there. Dad really enjoyed it too. I will never forget it!
