The congress will be held at the wonderful historical building of the Rectorate of the University of Córdoba, at 5 min distance from the railway station.




Cordoba, is an historical inland city located in Andalusia (at the Southern part of Spain), with a privileged climate in June and an impressive cultural and monumental patrimony. Its strategic position, near the River Guadalquivir, which was formerly navigable, and the legacy of the different peoples who settled on its rich farming lands meant that Cordoba was always considered a privileged place.

The UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) recognised in 1994 the universal importance of Cordoba’s historic legacy, and extended the title of World Heritage Site not only to the Mosque-Cathedral, but also to all the streets and buildings around it. In addition, in December 2012, Cordoba was awarded a further accolade: The Festival of the Patios (Courtyards) was added to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity sites.

Therefore, Cordoba now holds 3 inscriptions in the World Heritage List granted by the UNESCO: the Mosque-Cathedral (1984), the historical quarter surrounding it (1994) and the Festival of the Patios (Courtyards) (2012). In addition, with the rest of Spain, it shares the titles of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity awarded to Flamenco (2010) and the Mediterranean Diet (2013).
