Cordoba can boast that became capital of Hispania Ulterior during the Roman Empire and, later, the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate, when Muslims controlled the Iberian peninsula. This makes the city have a great prestige. In addition, if you join the folklore typical of the area, it makes a unique center for tourism, in relation to this we should mention that, as in all the country there is a bullfighting tradition that displays its history in a museum dedicated to this practice.
