A woman stands in the former Mosque of Cordoba in Cordoba in this January 20, 2007 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.
