Day 325 – Cordoba, Spain

Today we took a day trip to Cordoba, an absolutely charming Spanish city with a rich history. Awaking super early this morning to catch our 9:05am train, we were a bit tired but excited to explore this UNESCO World Heritage city. Upon arriving in Cordoba, we began our walking tour. A major highlight of the day was visiting Mezquita Catedral (also known as the Mosque Cathedral). This majestic structure displays a beautiful fusion of Islamic and Christian architectural elements. The building is simply stunning!
