Córdoba and Sevilla
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage City, Córdoba has the second largest Old Town in Europe. This Andalusian city was the capital of an Islamic caliphate and the center for education in the 10th century. That influence is still visible in its architecture, most famously in the Great Mosque-Cathedral, considered the most important Islamic monument built in the West.
After the discovery of the Americas, Sevilla became one of the economic centers of the Spanish Empire, heralding a Golden Age of arts and literature. With more winding, medieval lanes than half of Andalucia’s cities put together and home to flamenco and bullfighting, Sevilla’s heritage of art and architecture is without rival in southern Spain.
Located in the Castile y Leon region west of Madrid, Salamanca is an ancient town and home to one of the oldest universities in Europe. The historic center of Salamanca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its important Romanesque, Gothic, Moorish, Renaissance and Baroque monuments.
