Córdoba Through My Eyes

Córdoba Through My Eyes

In February of this year, I took a leap and decided to live in Córdoba, Spain for a while. I fell in love with this city while traveling through Andalucía in January and just couldn't stay away. Smaller and less touristy than its Andalucían cousins Sevilla and Granada, Córdoba is a magical city. People ask me all the time why I decided to come here, and the answer is both very long and very short. The simple answer is that something clicked while I was walking through the streets here. I plan to write more about the city soon, but it's been a while since I uploaded a photo blog and I want to show you all a few glimpses of the place I'm growing to love so much. Enjoy, and don't forget to also check out my YouTube channel to see more of Córdoba!

 Inside la Mezquita-Catedral: you can see that a cathedral was literally constructed within the mosque. Christians destroyed most of the mosques in Spain with the Reconquista, but thankfully spared this one.

 There are orange trees ( naranjos ) everywhere here, which is one of my absolute favorite things about Andalucía. The oranges are too bitter to eat, so the city collects them and uses them for marmalades, perfumes, and other products.

 The sky in Spain is something else. Especially in the center and south of the country, it has an expansive; otherworldly quality.
