Today, I want to show you the second part of my trip to Spain. We went to the Andalusian countryside and enjoyed a day at the historical Córdoba. This place has been highly influenced by the oriental settlers of the old byzantine empire. Christopher Columbus planned parts of his trip to India/America here and it shows a lot of signs how the catholic and muslime religion can co-exist next to each other. It was a really hot day and lots to see, therefore I would recommend more than one day for this city.
The famous mosque - a combination of a muslim and a catholic house of prayer. Fantastic architecture and amazing that people in the 15th century managed to incorporate both religions in one great house of prayer.
I think, Marbella could be called the St. Tropez of Spain. It is THE hotspot for the high society and you can see luxury everywhere. The area around the harbour is quite fancy and expensive (a little too posh for my taste), but worth a stroll. The actual beauty though is the old town that is just as pretty as the centre of Málaga. With the sweet little blue planters on white walls, this place is just so picturesque.
Plaza de los Naranjos
Both cities are beautiful and definitely worth a visit, but I saved my favourite spot for last. To see which place I loved the most on this trip through Andalusia, come back next week! What is your opinion on fancy hot spots like St.Tropez, the Hamptons or Marbella?
