Medina Azahara, Córdoba

Medina Azahara, son unas ruinas árabes que están al lado de Córdoba capital.

La visité por primera vez hace un par de fines de semana. Fuí solo y por eso pude jugar con la cámara poniendola en la punta de un palo.
Este es el vídeo que me ha salido de aquella mañana.

Recomendación visite Medina Azahara, hágalo en horas de mañana para evitar tener que esconderse del sol, para no freirse.

Medina Azahara in Wikipedia
The Ruins of Madinat al-Zahra (in Arabic: Madinat al-Zahra, مدينة الزهراء) are located about 5 kilometers from Córdoba, Spain. The ruins were discovered about ninety years ago. Only about 10 percent of the 112 sites have been excavated and restored. The city flourished for approximately 80 years. It had been built by Abd ar-Rahman III the Caliph of Córdoba starting between 936 and 940. After Abd ar-Rahman III proclaimed himself Caliph in 929, establishing the independent Umayyad Caliphate in the west, he decided to show his subjects and the world his power by building a palace-city 5 miles from Cordoba. The largest known city built from scratch in Western Europe, Madinat al-Zahra was the forgotten Versailles of the Middle Ages. It would be described by travelers from northern Europe and from the East as a dazzling series of palaces full of treasures never seen before. Around 1010, Madinat al-Zahra was sacked during the civil war that led to the dissolution of the Caliphate of Cordoba.[1] The raid effectively wiped the city off the map for a millennium.
