The old town of Cordoba extends around the Mezquita along the northern bank of the Guadalquivir river. It's an area with buildings from the Middle Ages, with narrow alleys and white-washed houses and palaces. The former Jewish quarter lies to the west of the Mezquita. Remnants of the Roman era are the Roman bridge built across the Guadalquivir river in the early first century BC and the Roman temple which was built between 41 and 96 AD. The alleys around the Mezquita are full of restaurants, hotels and souvenir shops.
