Without any doubt, those two cities are the essentials in any visit to what one day was called Al-Andalus. Full of labyrinthine streets, you can let your mind drift away and imagine how they were more than ten centuries ago, when the bargaining was the common practice among the bustle and hustle of their markets.
Cordoba is really nice to be discovered on foot, with all its streets beautifully decorated with colorful pots and with hidden courtyards that won't leave you indifferent once you step inside of them. Not to mention La Mezquita, one of the most impressive mosques in the world that once was home to a great variety of religions. You could spend a whole day admiring its reddish arches that fill the interior.
And, if La Mezquita is the symbol of Cordoba, La Alhambra is the symbol of Granada. A palace and fortress unique in the world and so powerful that everything in the city gravitates around it. Every stay in the palace has a delicate balance between majesty and good taste, it's a masterpiece and one of the wonders of the world. But you cannot say you have known Granada until you have walked the surrounding streets, placed all over the hills, and entered one of the tea shops that will make you travel to a past time when the city was home to a great diversity of cultures.
