Madinat al-Zahra

September 13, 2004

Madinat al-Zahra, a city a few kilmeters outside Cordoba that the Moors built and used for only about 70 years before it was abandoned. The place is now partially excavated, and sections have been restored to show how it probably looked during is heyday - think life-size museum, with great views of Cordoba and the surrounding plains.
