Stopping to smell the roses in Córdoba, Spain

Hidden in the twisting old Arab streets of Córdoba, Spain is a small patio. The courtyard is surrounded by the typical Andalusian pueblos blancos with their whitewashed facades. But here you barely notice the usual bright whiteness of these typical houses. Instead, the colors of green, red and pink pop out at you. The sweet, fresh scent of flowers is all around on the Calle de Flores. Another narrow alleyway leads out from the patio and a closer look reveals the ancient mosque-cum-cathedral, the great Mezquita. Beauty and history meet in this most charming of Spanish towns.

    • I have a personal connection to Granada, as I lived there for 6 months and it’s where I met my husband. 🙂 But I love Cordoba too. The Mezquita is one of the most beautiful buildings in southern Spain.
