The archaeological site of Medina Azahara is located under the mountains of Sierra Morena and the wide terrain that flows to the city of Córdoba. This was built by Abderramán III, as a symbol of power and prestige. It was one of the most amazing constructions of the time, which he named The shining city (Medina Azahara).
Medina Azahara was the capital of Umayyad Caliphate, it enjoyed grandeur and splendour during the heyday. The capital was destroyed because of power struggles, which leaves us with the ruins that we find today in our guide tour.
