Cordoba (Córdoba in Spanish) is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba. Claudius Marcellus founded it in ancient Roman times as Corduba.
Today a moderately sized modern city, the old town contains many impressive architectural reminders of when Cordoba was the thriving capital of the Caliphate of Cordoba that governed almost all of the Iberian Peninsula. It has been estimated that Cordoba, with up to 500,000 inhabitants in the tenth century, was the largest city in Western Europe and, perhaps, in the world.
