This city's history is over 2,000 years old. The Romans made it capital of the rich province of the Baetica; with the Moslems it turned into the principal city and center of the Occidental Caliphate. Different cultures that meet in its grounds along the centuries enrich it. The Mosque Aljama, with a Christian cathedral, crowns the jewel made up by the white and mottled groups of dwellings of its historical center. This valuable setting was declared World Heritage City by the UNESCO in 1994.
