  4. 4. 4<br />La Mezquita<br /><ul><li>Apart from having the highest maximum and minimum summer temperatures in Europe (often over 40º during the day and 27º at night), the city is most famous for the golden age of Al Andalus, when most of the Iberian peninsula was Islamic. When the Catholics took control of Cordoba they saw the incredible beauty of the central mosque and instead of destroying it they converted it into a cathedral. It is an incredible mix of medieval Christian and Islamic architecture and a must-see for anyone visiting Córdoba.</li></ul>Insider Facts: Try the salmorejo and tortilla at bar Santos (Magistral González Francés). Sit on the wall of the Mezquita and watch the world go by!<br />Copyright 2011 FUJITSU<br />4<br />
  5. 5. 5<br />El Museo Julio Romero de Torres<br /><ul><li>Julio Romero de Torres was an artist who was born and died in Cordoba. The influence of the city is unmistakable in his work. The museum is small but well worth a visit.</li></ul>Insider Facts: Even if you can‘t make it to the museum you will not miss his work. If you see any paintings of beautiful women in Cordoban souvenir shops you‘re probably looking at the work of Romero de Torres.<br />Copyright 2011 FUJITSU<br />5<br />
  6. 6. 6<br />El Puente Romano<br /><ul><li>The Roman bridge possibly dates back to the first century B.C. and the large building you can see in the background is the Mezquita. It is mindblowing to think of the different civilizations evident in this image.</li></ul>Insider Facts: <br />The riverside has a few good options for lunch that go beyond the standard tourist fare. Time to eat!!<br />Copyright 2011 FUJITSU<br />6<br />
  7. 7. 7<br />La Judería<br /><ul><li>Tiny winding streets with interesting sights around every corner, the Jewish quarter is another unmissable part of a trip to this city. If you need to buy some souvenirs then this is the time and the place.</li></ul>Insider Facts: <br />Don‘t worry about getting lost. Although it is easy to lose your way, you will have fun finding your way out again!<br />Copyright 2011 FUJITSU<br />7<br />
  8. 8. 8<br />UnaCervecita<br /><ul><li>Plaza de la Corredera is a large square surrounded by a building constructed in the 17th century. It is a good location for a beer or for a cold glass of fino (a dry white wine). Occasionally you‘ll be lucky enough to catch some live music ! This brings your day-trip to an end... Come again soon!</li></ul>Insider Facts: <br />Order a small beer (una caña) or a large beer (una jarra) with the typical Cordoban cold soup (salmorejo) and Spanish omelette (tortilla de patatas).<br />Copyright 2011 FUJITSU<br />8<br />
