Photographer's Note

On the other side of Plaza de la Corredera from the Mercado de Sánchez Peña, which featured in my previous posting, there is small flower market located under the arcades.

Plaza de la Corredera is a square in Old Cordoba in Andalusia, Spain. The present-day square is rectangular with arched porticos running around the ground floor. Designed in the style of the old city squares of Castille, it is the only one of its kind in Andalusia.

It was used in olden days as a bullring, and to this day there is a street named Toril (Bulls' enclosure). The square has a long history and has witnessed many events, from autos de fe (the ritual of public penance of condemned heretics and apostates that took place during the period of the Spanish Inquisition) and public addresses to public executions during the French Invasion. It now houses a variety of cafes and bars and small shops as well as the market.
