From the top of the wall, you can see the town and the rest of the region as a point of dominion of the region. Within the city churches are of great historical and monumental value, such as the Church of our Assumption of the thirteenth century, the Church of San Juan de Dios of the seventeenth century or the oldest temple in the city, that of San Juan Bautista, century VII with a pilaster dated in 688 and that constitutes the oldest Marian invocation of the Diocese of Córdoba. Legend has it that it was here that El Cid acquired the name.
The next town bordering the natural park of the Sierras Subbeticas is Baena after passing through Doña Mecía. Baena is a meeting area with the other part of the Mozarabic route coming from Granada and Jaén. The religious monuments also stand out in this penultimate place before reaching the Caliphate capital, such as the Church of Santa María la Mayor or the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, without forgetting the castle of Baena, from the 9th century.
After leaving Baena and touring the countryside, we arrive in Cordoba, crossing the Roman bridge to meet the mosque, now converted into a cathedral and representing the power of the Umayyad dynasty.
Cordoba is a point and apart in the Mozarabic route since in this case we have spoken since its origin in Malaga, however, the other two routes that depart from Almería and Jaén, also reach the capital of the Caliphate.
