First post traveling in Spain. That is actually funny because I am half Spanish. Crazy none of the previous posts were about my second home. Well, let’s start with this one. A summer, a few years ago, we decided to drive down and visit Andalusia, southern Spain where I had never traveled to. We stopped by the most famous and well known cities such as Granada, Ronda, Cordova, Marbella,… Here is a first post of my Southern Spain series with pictures of La Mezquita cathedral in Córdoba or Cordova in English.
A piece of art. As I walked inside the immense Mezquita, I was astonished by the beauty of this cathedral. Its architecture captivated my eyes for hours. I contemplated its illustrious archs and columns and genuially couldn’t stop looking. This fascinating construction is, with the Alhambra in Granada (no,worries, more on that in a following post), are the two gems of my trip around Andalucia. Well, of course I will tell you my country is beautiful. But if you don’t believe me, have a look at these shots and dare tell me I am a liar. I like not to visit a place twice, and use my traveling opportunities to take my eyes elsewhere new. But I would be pleased to go back and rediscover the place, as a grown person with a different eye on history and art. I believe these monuments have a unique history within their walls, that where built in a different time in a very different world, and it is always so exciting for me to investigate the reason of their existence.
