In the first of the Spain series, let me take you to Andalusia in southern Spain.
Southern Spain has lots of Moorish influences, having been invaded and ruled by Islamic armies for years. And Córdoba is no exception. The evidence is everwhere - from its architecture to its food.
In the 10th century Córdoba was said to be the most populous city in the world. However, today you'd be hard pressed to imagine it, especially if you come from a city like Mumbai! Córdoba truly caught my fancy for its quaintness and beauty - its whitewashed walls decorated with pots of flowers, its winding alleys leading to quiet courtyards, and its numerous churches of all shapes and sizes.
