Rick Steves: Cordoba: Magnificent Mezquita

“Tucked into a bend of its river, Córdoba is rich in Roman, Moorish and Christian history. The heart of the city is dominated by the glorious Mezquita, a mosque/cathedral complex that epitomizes a turbulent past.”

Rick Steves: Granada: The Exquisite Alhambra

“Granada's dominant sight is the Alhambra, the last and greatest Moorish palace. For two centuries, until 1492, Granada reigned as the capital of a dwindling Moorish empire. As Christian forces pushed the Moors farther and farther south, this palace was the last hurrah of a sophisticated civilization.”

Anthony Bourdain, Parts Unknown, Spain
