Calleja del Pañuelo

The Alley of the Handkerchief, just next to the Mosque-Cathedral, is a must for every visitor to Cordoba. The alleyway starts off from the square Plaza de la Concha and is in Moorish style: its most remarkable feature is that at its narrowest point it is no wider than a lady’s handkerchief. Right at the end is a tiny square - considered by some as the smallest in the world - containing a small fountain and an aromatic orange tree. The gentle trickle of water and the scent of orange blossom charm the visitor in the intimacy of this diminutive square.
