  • What a wonderful place! Make sure to take a stroll in this garden before going into the Mezquita!
  • After being mesmerized by the splendors inside the Mezquita, it was nice to be able to reflect on them in the peaceful gardens outside, while enjoying lunch.
  • El Patio de Los Naranjos is one of the oldest living gardens in the world. The beginnings of the peaceful garden date back to the days of Abd al-Rahman I in 784. The In the days of the Muslim’s, the garden functioned as cemetery, gathering place and simply a place to share ideas and conversation. The Renaissance fountains essential part of the Garden provide a sudden sounds to the weary travelers that come every year. You too need to come and walk the garden full of orange trees. If they are in bloom be ready to smell a sweet fragrance. You know it was not always like this. Long time ago El Patio de Los Naranjos was full pomegranate trees and palm and cypress trees. And all throughout you can see the remnants of the Christians. Make sure to spend time observing the main parts of the Garden. For example there is the entrance totally Arabic and today known as the Door of Forgiveness and the door of the Conception. Today the Patio lends itself to the Christian perimeters. But the Arab influence could not and should not be missed. This is what gives Seville a poignant flavor and you my friend travelers need to come and visit. Caution: Pickpockets are common in public area and as I say before, the beautiful ladies might come with the Rosemary leaves. They would want to tell you about your future. It can get expensive. Instead, just enjoy the present in a sacred place that speaks of a time in which Arabs and Christians built a jewel that transcends time and beliefs – enjoy life!
  • Impressive
  • Anyone who comes to Cordoba lets go through this large courtyard, part of the city's Cathedral. If light, architecture and atmosphere make it a must-see.

To experience the heart of Cordoba's old-world charm, the famous Jewish Quarter, or Judería, offers an array of family-owned pensions and boutique hotels with close proximity to the city's main attractions and lively tapas culture. A number of newer hotels surround the local train and bus stations offering more spacious accomodations, although removed from the city's historical district.
