Cordoba City Center, Spain The historic Calleja de las Flores Street is a popular walking spot for visitors to the city. Beautiful medieval houses have been preserved on this street. The street got its name due to the beautiful national tradition. Locals have been decorating house facades and balconies with pots of fresh flowers for hundreds of years. This ancient street is one of the most photographed places in the city. The millennial Palace of Medina Azahara is the most important point of the excursion program. It was built for Caliph Abd al-Raḥmān III in the 10th century.

The historical monument has a difficult fate. It lasted less than a hundred years after the construction was completed. The palace was destroyed. Its restoration began only in the 19th century in the course of large-scale archaeological research. Many unique elements of the building have been restored to date. Restoration work of the palace continues. The Viana Palace is a historical monument of a later period. It was built in the 17th century. The palace belonged to a noble family. The beautiful Renaissance palace has retained its unique exterior and interior design. 12 charming courtyards are also preserved in it. A collection of works of art and decorative ornaments, as well as more than 7,000 ancient books, are stored in the palace. Next - Santiago de Compostela
