Medinat al-Zahara

In 936 the "Caliph of Cordoba" had built this palace for his lady "az-Zahara". From 945 on, the palace was the seat of government of "al-Andalus". In 1031 the caliphat collapsed and in 1236 the Moors were defeated by Fernando III and the palace was abandoned. But the ruins are still very impressive.
