Cordoba offers a powerful multi-cultural sampler. Founded by the Romans, Cordoba's glory peaked under Moorish rule, who built the beautiful Grand Mosque, or "Mezquita". The Christian rulers decided to leave it standing and built a cathedral in the midst of its rows of arches and columns. Cordoba's treasures also include the Alcazar, built by the Christians in 1328; the Calahorra Fort, originally built by the Arabs, which guards the Roman Bridge, and the ancient Jewish Synagogue, now a museum.
