Situated deep in the Andalusian Autonomous Region, Cordoba is a compendium of history and modernity. Very few places in the world can boast of having been the capital of Hispania Ulterior under the Roman Empire, and the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate. Such splendour is palpable in the intellectual wealth of this centre of wisdom and knowledge, that has seen the birth of figures like Seneca, Averroes and Maimonides.To take a stroll through the historic quarter of Cordoba is to discover a beautiful network of small streets, alleys, squares and whitewashed courtyards arranged around the Mosque-Cathedral, which reflects the importance of the city during medieval times and which is a real symbol of the capital.
Olive oil, being produced in big quantities around Cordoba, is an important ingredient of many typical dishes.Gazpacho and Salmorejo, delicious and refreshing cold soups made mainly of mashed vegetables and olive oil, are the indispensable first dish during the hot season. Equally indispensable is Jamon, cured ham, which is produced in Valle de los Pedroches. Salchichon de Pozo Blanco, a typical sausage, Caña de Lomo and Morcilla, blood sausage, are more specialities.Despite of the hot climate, there are of course as well warm dishes: the ragouts of oxtail and of lamb, Cordero en Caldereta.
The typical desserts: Alfajores, made of almonds and honey and a Pastel Cordobes.
