A view of Puente de San Pablo from the Hanging Houses of the Old Town @ Cuenca, Spain. The bridge of Saint Paul (Puente de San Pablo) was built from 1533 to 1589, a construction driven by the canon Juan del Pozo, over the river Huecar’s Gorge, aiming at connecting the old town with St Paul convent. The original bridge collapsed, and the current one was built in 1902, made of wood and iron according to the style dominating at the beginning of the 20th century. It is up to 40 metres high, and supported upon the remains of the old bridge. #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #natgeotravel #huffpostgram #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Cuenca)

Finding love in Cuenca, Spain on the Puente de San Pablo (Bridge of Saint Paul). These locks on bridges, fences, gates or similar public fixtures are called Love Locks, wherein the lovers’ names are inscribed on the padlocks and the keys are thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love. The history of Love Locks dates back at least 100 years to Serbia in World War 1, with a reference to the bridge Most Ljubavi (lit. The Bridge of Love) in the spa town of Vrnjačka Banja. #cuenca #spain #love #summer #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #natgeotravel #huffpostgram #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Cuenca)

2 fountains and 2 statues @ Plaza de las Tendillas, Cordoba, Spain. The Plaza is named after the small boutiques (“tiendas”) which once surrounded the square and flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries. Upscale modern and sometimes even monumental buildings have replaced these.
Lacking a Times Square, this is where Córdobans gather for the New Years’ Eve countdown under the 1961 vintage clock at the center which tolls with Flamenco soleá music. #cordoba #spain #andalusia #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #natgeotravel #huffpostgram #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Cordoba)

The facade of the great Mezquita-Catedral in Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain // The Great Mosque of Cordoba was at one time the second largest mosque in the world in Córdoba, Spain. Built in 780 upon the remains of the Basilica of San Vicente (s. VI), it became a Roman Catholic cathedral again since 1236. #cordoba #spain #andalusia #mosque #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #natgeotravel #huffpostgram #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Mezquita-Cathedral, Cordoba)

This is the Capilla Mayor at the Cordoba Mezquita-Catedral. This Chapel was constructed quite some time after the Reconquista. This Main Chapel is the main shrine of the Catedral now and started to be built in 1523. Noteworthy is that the central pillar of the left has a marble altar with a status of Santiago Matamoros - also known as Saint James Matamoros or Saint James the Moor-slayer. He is a famous mythological figure who helped Spanish Christians defeat the Muslims in battle. Legends account his appearance in The Battle of Clavijo in 844, an event that launched the Reconquista. Interestingly enough, historians agree that the battle never happened and he was a legend invented centuries after the supposed event. #cordoba #Andalucía #spain #summer #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #iphotography #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Mezquita-Cathedral, Cordoba)

These are the remains of a Roman temple in Cordoba, Spain which were discovered in the 1950s during the expansion of City Hall. It was not the only temple that the city had, but it was possibly the most important of all, and the only known by archaeological excavation. It is a Pseudoperipterus, hexastyle and of Corinthian order temple of 32 meters long and 16 wide. Its construction began during the reign of Emperor Claudius (41-54 AD) and ended some forty years later, during the reign of Emperor Domitian (81-96 CE). Presumably it was dedicated to the imperial cult. #romanruins #cordoba #andalusia #spain #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #iphotography #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Cordoba)

Calleja de las Flores @ Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain
This Alley of Flowers is one of the most picturesque places in Cordoba. It is a narrow alleyway filled with flowers hanging from whitewashed walls. It offers postcard-perfect views of the Mezquita bell tower and perfectly represents urban life in the ancient town. #cordoba #andalusia #spain #summer #instatravel #travel #instapassport #instahub #instacool #instagood #iphonesia #instadaily #iphoneonly #instamoment #bestoftheday #16oftheweek #jj_forum #jj #picoftheday #photooftheday #gang_family #architecture #design #is #dressupandtravel #theamazingadventuresofakanksha (at Cordoba)
