People stroll near the former Mosque of Cordoba in Cordoba, southern Spain in this December 29, 2006 file photo. If you enjoy combining cultural history, good food and good wine with a stroll through pretty old streets and some olive groves, then the province of Cordoba in Spain's southern region of Andalusia offers the perfect itinerary. The Cathedral/Mosque, indisputably Cordoba's main attraction, is stunningly preserved, a forest of 850 columns of granite and marble connected by arches of red stone and red-and-white brick, typical of Cordoba's Caliph architecture.
