[Trip] Spain – One Day trip at Córdoba

Wanted to explore out of the Seville? We went on a short one day trip to the nearby city Córdoba, which is only a 45 minutes train ride away.

What to see?

Overall:

It was a beautiful and meaningful trip. Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba is indeed showing the evolution of a city, where different religion is in one building. Even though we are staying in Singapore, a multiracial country, we do not have a place where different religion or deities are housed in a building. Therefore, this place has definitely left us a deep impression.
