This is a simple yet meaningful monument of two pairs of lovers hands entwined together as a testament to love. Easy to find, it is located a stones throw from the Alcazar and the old city walls.

A simple memorial set in a small park. We stumbled on it while walking to the Jewish Quarter. It is an interesting bit of history, it commemorates an event significant to the people of Cordoba, but it is not a destination attraction.
