★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I visited Cordoba many times
I visited Cordoba many times but did not fully appreciate in until after reading this guide. I had bought the Approach guide to Angkor Wat and since bought their other books. Very detailed, very architectural. Not for the “lonley planet” crowd who wants to know where to go shopping.
