Visit the archeological remains of a 10th century palace located just a few short kilometers from the city. This palace, whose name means “the Shining City”, was built when Cordoba was the most important city in the Western world. Only about 11% of the building has been excavated to date and the most important find up to now is The Reception hall of Abd Al-Rahman III, an exquisitely decorated room. Although the palace was built at tremendous expense and was the Caliph’s favorite, it had a short life as civil war took its toll after less than 100 years. Even so, it remains as a clear reminder of Cordoba’s power and the Caliph’s might.
