Córdoba and its mighty Mezquita

One stifling August day, like the mad English folk that we are, we set off to the ancient Moorish city of Córdoba, to see if La Mezquita, Córdoba's C8th mosque, was all it’s cracked up to be. I don’t mean to sound philistine but we have been to the Alhambra several times and it could hardly be a match for... (read more...)

Ronda’s Barrio San Francisco has its own special flavour, perhaps because it is on the edge of town surrounded by open countryside, it has an intimate, village feel and is incredibly laid back, even by Andalucian standards.
