Golden Age Of Cordoba

Golden Age Of Cordoba



Was Andalusia merely a long dream spanning eight centuries, or was it a great civilization that brought knowledge, science, and art to the dark Middle Ages of Europe? Rather than shedding tears and lamenting the lost paradise of Andalusia, our real duty is to introduce this great civilization to the whole world in all its aspects. It is to showcase the era when Andalusia was at the pinnacle in every field. While the people of Paris, Vienna, and Rome could only venture out into the streets at night with torches, the people of Cordoba roamed the brightly lit streets in safety until late hours. While Europe was unfamiliar with cleanliness, Cordoba boasted a staggering 800 public baths. Clean water networks reached into people’s homes. While European palaces had only around 70-80 books, the library of Caliph Al-Hakam II contained a whopping 400,000 volumes. The first paper factory in Europe was established in Xàtiva, producing paper in bulk and exporting it worldwide. When you learn about the lifestyle of Cordoba, not only Europe’s but one of the world’s most important centers of knowledge a millennium ago, you will be amazed.
