University of Cordoba
Cordoba, Spain

The province of Cordoba, with a population of over 750,000 inhabitants, is one of eight that make up the Autonomous Community of Andalusia. The province covers 13,723.20 square kilometres, accounting for 2.7% of the total area of Spain.
Cordoba is a city immersed in history. Thanks to its cultural and monumental legacy, Cordoba was designated World Heritage City by the UNESCO in 1984 and is a leading candidate for the European Capital of Culture title in 2016. A crossroads of diverse cultures throughout the city’s history, the splendour it achieved under the Romans and Visigoths grew with the arrival of the Muslims at the beginning of the 8th century when Cordoba became the capital of Al-Andalus; the largest and most developed city in the West. The Mosque, one of the most emblematic monuments of the city, was the greatest in the Western world under Muslim rule. Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, the Mosque houses a Christian cathedral. The nearby Jewish Quarter, where the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters is located, stands out for its narrow, winding streets.

Located in the Guadalquivir River Valley, the city is bordered to the north by the Sierra Morena mountain range and to the south by the Campiña, one of the most traditional farming areas of Andalusia.
