Roman bridge

Looking across Cordoba’s Roman bridge to the old town from the top of the Calahorra Tower, a paraglider buzzing overhead, and the river running low.

As well as great views from the top, the tower has a small museum including a room full of beautiful models of  life in Moorish Cordoba; here’s a close up sketch, peeping into  one of them (the figures are about 3 inches high).
