Cordoba, World Heritage Site
Cordoba is a city with a huge cultural and monumental legacy. Its strategic location, close to the Guadalquivir River, once navigable, and the heritage of the different peoples settled in its rich lands, have made it a privileged place.
Unesco (United Nations Cultural, Scientific and Educational Organization) recognized in 1994 the universal importance of Cordoba historical assets, extending the title of World Heritage not only to the Mosque-Cathedral, but also to the entire urban complex that surrounds it. In addition, in 2012, Córdoba received another badge: The Fiesta de Los Patios was recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Finally, in July 2018, the Califal City of Medina Azahara has also received the title of World Heritage Site.
