La Cuesta del Bailío fue históricamente una de las comunicaciones de Córdoba entre la ciudad alta (Medina o Villa) y la baja (Axerquía) que atravesaba la muralla de origen romano. Hasta 1711 hubo un Arco que dio nombre a esta zona (Arco o Portillo de Corbacho). La Cuesta del Bailío comienza en la calle Carbonell y Morand discurriendo hasta la calle Alfaros. De los escalones que posee, 31 tienen el firme achinado, con dibujos decorativos, llegando a la bifurcación, donde se encuentra una fuente.

Al fondo se divisa la Casa del Bailío, con bella fachada renacentista, nombrada así por el cargo que ostentaba su dueño y que da nombre a la cuesta, comunicando con la plaza de Capuchinos y con el Cristo de los Faroles.

La casa palaciega situada en la parte alta de la Cuesta, que fue de los Fernández de Córdoba, por una dignidad de esta familia (Bailío) dio nombre definitivo a esta casa. Dicha casa (portada de Hernán Ruiz II), es un buen ejemplo de la arquitectura cordobesa del siglo XVI al siglo XVIII.

Dit is een overzicht van 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.
