Summary

At number 12 Judíos street the Al-Andalus house open its doors, a luxurious 12th century dwelling annexed to the western stretch of the Cordoban wall which conserves a vaulted wall-walk. From the Roman mosaic of its cellar to the Morisco living room where the life of Cordoban Moslems is recreated, the Al-Andalus house represents the overlaying of cultures of which the city today is a product. A valuable collection of artistic objects complements the lavish decoration of the house and courtyard, the culmination of work by the French communist historian Roger Garaudy and his wife the Palestinian Salma Farouqui after the former had converted to Islam and both settled in Córdoba.
