Photo: Market Stalls Plaza De La Corredera Cordoba Audalusia Spain

Market stalls and buyers mill around in the Plaza de la Corredera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the city of Cordoba, which is a province of Andalusia, Spain. Plaza de la Corredera means 'Plaza of the Ram'.

The Plaza de la Corredera is a place today where market vendors can set up their stalls, sell their goods, and residents and tourists alike come to spend their money, and spend some time in the open air. This is a square that has long been shaped by the passage of time.

It has been used for bull fights, and organized games; especially up to the fifteenth century it was mostly used for bull fighting, but has always been a place where many people would gather together. It has also been used for trading, and in 1896 a building was built in the middle to house the market supply. However, that building was torn down in 1959.

Today around the outside of the Plaza, can be found residences, offices, and little shops tucked in under the archways, as well as the stalls under the umbrellas.

Cordoba used to be the capital of the province Betica during the Roman Empire, and was one of the most affluent cities in the world around the time of the 10th century, when it had about one million inhabitants. ... continue below the picture...
