Cordoba - 20th century

Cordoba - 20th century

It was not until the mid 20th century that Cordoba started to recover some of its lost splendour and importance. The population grew, the economy picked up, and the University was founded, thus enriching the city both artistically and culturally. New building projects started, and at the same time, the city of Cordoba finally came to terms with its historical legacy. It was one of the city’s proudest moments when the historic quarter of the city was declared World Heritage Site, thus helping to make the citizens fully aware of the importance of preserving and letting others know about the history of Cordoba.
