MADRID, May 18 (KUNA) -- The Spanish city of Cordoba represents the country's rich heritage, culture and history, with distinctive houses designed with fountains and wells, much like those in Damascus.
The city celebrates beauty in May of every year through the "Courtyards Festival of Cordoba", where houses are decorated with flowers and roses in a contest to choose the most beautiful designs and architecture.
