First founded as a Roman city, in 756 Cordoba became the capital of Moorish Spain. In the 10th century, Cordoba was the largest city in western Europe, with schools, hospitals, mansions, public baths, and a great center of learning, renowned for its scholars and libraries. The caliph of Cordoba was very tolerant of the Jewish, Christian and Islamic communities. The glory of Cordoba is far in the past, but when kids step inside La Mezquita (Great Mosque), the golden age is very much present.
