Medina Azahara en Cordoba
Spain
Medinat al-Zahara, la fastuosa y misteriosa ciudad que Abd-al Rahman III mandó construir a los pies de Sierra Morena, a ocho kilómetros de la capital, encierra, incluso en su nombre, historias legendarias. La tradición popular afirma que, autoproclamado Abd al-Rahman III califa en el 929 d.C., y tras ocho años de reinado, decidió edificar una ciudad palatina en honor a su favorita, Azahara. Sin embargo, recientes estudios aportan fuertes evidencias de la causa que impulsó al califa a fundar Medina Azahara. Una renovada imagen del recién creado Califato Independiente de Occidente, fuerte y poderoso, uno de los mayores reinos medievales de Europa, se acepta como el origen más probable de la nueva Medina. Se encuentra en ruinas, y con restauraciones parciales ...........

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
