Hello friends, today I offer this souk patio of the beautiful city of Cordoba, located in the Jewish Quarter, near the Mosque-Cathedral, is a place worth visiting, hope you like it.
Jewry is known from the area of the Spanish city of Cordoba was, between the tenth and fifteenth, the neighborhood where Jews lived. It is located northwest of the Mezquita, in the area between the streets Deanes, Manríquez, Earl Thomas, Jews, Almanzor and Romero.
It is one of the most visited by tourists because, in addition to the mosque, in it you can see sights such as the Synagogue, the souk or Municipal Bullfighting Museum, among others.
Córdoba lived a splendid time when three people (Christian, Jewish and Muslim) with their respective religions coexisted peacefully, offering the world an example of tolerance and intelligent civilization. The three languages of babel they managed to coexist and each people to pray in harmony and in their own languages to their god. Walking through the Jewish quarter, the Street of the Jews are today a magnificent bronze statue dedicated to Maimonides, the great Jewish philosopher and physician Cordoba. He sought the truth, the meaning of life, seeking knowledge, the reason that allows men to be better. Maimonides rejected blind faith in creeds, in the fanaticism that overrides all freedom of thought and action. Maimonides Córdoba enjoyed the freedom, respect for others.
Most of the Jewish people lived then under rule of Islam, and it was then that began the long and brilliant period of Jewish-Arab symbiosis of Cordoba. During the four centuries of Umayyad hegemony, cultural, artistic and commercial Muslims of Al-Andalus became the most cultured country in Europe. Historians speak admiringly of Cordoba, capital of the Umayyad Caliphate, which became a great cultural center with its lakes and parks, glittering palaces and mosques. The court attracted and exercised his patronage of poets and philosophers, men of letters and science.
During the tenth century Cordoba was the largest economic and cultural center of the West and an example of coexistence between different cultures, Jews, Christians and Muslims.
In 756 Abd-al-Rahman I, Cordoba became the capital of Muslim Spain and for the next 250 years became one of the largest commercial and intellectual centers of the world. In 929, Abd-al-Rahman III proclaimed the Caliphate and the city reached its peak in rivalry with Damascus and Baghdad, centers of great economic and intellectual prosperity. From the eleventh century, with the disintegration of Muslim power in Spain, part of the cultural achievement of Córdoba was lost, but remained as a center for writers and scholars. In the twelfth century highlighted the activity of philosophers Averroes and Maimonides. In 1236 Ferdinand III captured the city and joined the Kingdom of Castile.
Córdoba was and remains today a living example of multicultural and multiethnic reality, a reflection of what has been two thousand year history, drawn from different civilizations, cultures, religions, philosophies and ideologies that have shaped, despite some periods intransigence and persecution, the image of a city in which coexistence is possible between different people belonging to different races, practice different religions and ideologies have varied.

Je rêve d'avoir une cour intérieure , mais ce n'est vraiment pas la mode chez nous. J'ai toujours trouvé les cours intérieures de toute beauté avec toutes ces fleurs et fontaines. Par contre, le ciel est un petit peu délavé.

Maravilloso patio y magnífica composicion, me falta el bonito azul de los cielos andaluces, pero no se puede tener todo.... que delicia lo bien cuidado que se ve todo y como se colocan las macetas con tanto arte, me gusta en contraste de ambas paredes, la una blanqueada y la otra con los arcos en ladrillo.
Un bonito trabajo amigo mio.
Pasa una feliz tarde y buen resto de la semana.
