Córdoba - In ‘La Juderia’

While sometimes TE members are struggling to get some people on their pictures, this time I had no idea how I could avoid them 

La Juderia is Córdoba’s old Jewish quarter and an amazing network of lanes, patios and little gardens with fountains. It’s really very beautiful to see. However, this part of town is highly commercialized resulting in a lot of visitors.

The picture in the workshop is almost an exception with no one who has suddenly jumped in front of the camera. Only a group of tourists a few meters further. I know, if I want to travel I have to accept that the rest of mankind also travels.
The only thing I could do was pointing my camera above all heads and then just have a higher portion of the labyrinth of streets. Well, I think the result is also a bit maze-like.

From Wikipedia (Spanish page):

The Jewish Quarter in Córdoba is built between the 10th and 15th century. This was the neighbourhood where Jews lived. It is located northwest of the Mezquita Catedral.

La Juderia is part of the historic center and one of the most visited areas by tourists in this ‘City of Three Cultures’. In 1994 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
