Photographer's Note

Plaza de las Tendillas in Cordoba is considered as the city's main square. Set in the centre of modern Cordoba, it has existed in its present form since the 1920s as evidenced by some of its architecture.

Remodelled subsequently on various occasions, it has now become one of the favourite meeting places for Cordoban people and visitors with its many cafés and restaurants.

It’s named after the small boutiques ("tiendas") which once surrounded the square and flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries. Modern buildings since have replaced these.

In the middle of the square, surrounded by the main fountain, stands the equestrian statue of the Gran Capitán by the sculptor Mateo Inurria.
