A Brief History of Cordoba Carpets

Halls in Mosque of Cordoba SpainCordoba is a city located in south central Spain and steeped in over 2,000 years of rich history - the Romans, the Visigoths, Jewish peoples, the Moors and then the Spanish all left their distinct imprint on Cordoba, making it one of the most interesting cities in Spain. This very fine wool rug is made up of 100% Turkish or Ghiordes knots and represents the influence of the Moors in Spain. Some of the palaces built in Spain by the Moors between the 8th and 11th century display this design on their interior walls. This design can be seen in the tile walls of the Alhambra royal palace, the fortress in Granada and the Alcazar of Seville Palace, originally a Moorish fort.
