Cordoba

Qurtuba was the most important city of Al Andalus (756-1010), the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate. In those days it became the most cultured, sophisticated and splendid city in Europe and, with Baghdad, the main center of knowledge of the Muslim world. Qurtuba remains alive in the streets, buildings and culture of present-day Cordoba, an essential destination for Muslims around the world.
