On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition “Al-Andalus Mathematics Tour,” on Friday, April 12 we will be hosting a guided tour of the emblematic monument of Cordoba, from a different viewpoint. SOLD OUT.

The tour will be guided by the Scientific Director of the project “Paseo Matemático al Ándalus” and researcher at the University of Granada’s Andalusian Institute of Data Science and Computational Intelligence, Álvaro Martínez Sevilla, who will be offering his unique viewpoint of the World Heritage monument, combining history, art, science and technology. 

The symmetry of the arches, the changes in its domes across time, the Cordovan proportion and the very orientation of the Mosque of Cordoba will all lead us on a unique journey through the history, art and scientific knowledge of Andalusia.
