Córdoba in Andalusia, Spain

What a whirlwind fortnight we've had; trips to Belgium and Italy with hardly any breathing time in between and a seemingly-never-ending list of tasks to work through. Life has become very busy! 

Continuing our series from the south of Spain and as promised in our snapshot post of Iznájar, here's a round-up of our trip to the city of Córdoba.

On our first full day in Andalusia we negotiated the unsealed roads in our (hired) Alfa Romeo, wiggled around Lake Iznájar and headed towards the motorway just north of the caseria towards Córdoba.
