Cordoba Travel Guide
Cordoba was famous for its leather workers in Moorish times. In the 15th century it was very valuable, the leather was studded with gold and silver ornaments, and painted with embossed designs.
If you're looking to get some of these types of leathers and other Cordoban handicrafts, the place to go is Artesanía Andaluza - Tomas Conde 3. The shop offers a wide range of handicrafts, especially filigree silver from the mines of Sierra Morena and some brilliantly crafted embossed leather.
