(105 mins) In 711 A.D. the Moroccan Islamic army crossed the strait of Gibraltar and reached Tarifa, a port at the edge of the European continent, and began a rule of more than 800 years.

Cordoba became a symbolic city mixing the various influences and now has a culture unique to Spain. Does that cultural development continue today?
