Córdoba General: 79 reviews and 122 photos
Favorite thing: After passing under the Puerta del Puente or Bridge Gate, the first thing you notice is theTRIUMPHAL COLUMN OF SAN RAFAEL which stands between the Gate and the great Mosque and is erected on an embossed pedestal. The sculpture by Verdiguier which was completed 1781, was commissioned to pay homage to the archangel Rafael, the patron saint of Cordoba, for having spared the city during a devastating earthquake.
