We then arrived at "La Catedral Córdoba" that was once a stately mosque. The moorish design of imposing arches was on an immense scale. We had some free time to explore the beautiful city. Before making our way to Seville, we stopped at the ruins of the Madinat al Zahra, where the Caliph ruled Al Andalusia. After an informative video about the Calaphate we walked around the archeological excavation.

|Seville Futbl Game|
Then we were off to a soccer (futbol) game where the Seville won 1-0. The spirit in the stadium was exhilarating, we had the best time cheering! By the time we returned to our hotel, we were almost too tired to eat dinner. Looking forward to another great day tomorrow.
