The Cathedral of Valladolid - known as "La Inconclusa", is perhaps not the most famous in #CyL , but it is one of the most curious, due to its sober aesthetic, differing from other contemporary cathedrals. Its construction is a succession of frustrated projects that could never be finished, resulting in a half-built cathedral and a collegiate church that aspired to more than it became. Without a doubt, an essential monument to visit on any trip to #Valladolid #cathedrals #spain #castillayleĆ³n #catedraldevalladolid #lainconclusaā›Ŗļø #pucela #valladolidespaƱa #valladolidspain (en Catedral de Nuestra SeƱora de la AsunciĆ³n de Valladolid) https://www.instagram.com/p/CcKoWQatgGc/?igshid=NGJjMDIxMWI=

Acorn-fed Iberian ham is considered a #gourmet food, one that conquers the taste buds of anyone trying it for first time! It should be eaten in wafer-thin slices to appreciate the fragrant, delicate flesh, flecked with fat from the pigā€™s acorn diet. Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which contribute to good health, the fat melts in the mouth, flooding the palate with its intense, unmatched long lasting flavor! #jamonlovers #jamĆ³ndebellota #acorns #torrencinas #worldsfinestham #hearthealthyfood #productazo #disfrutones #gourmet #delicatessen #jamondeguijuelo (en Barcelona, Spain) https://www.instagram.com/p/CYANCz0t1Bd/?utm_medium=tumblr

El origen del ā€˜Steak Tartarā€™ no estĆ” del todo claro! Muchas culturas han consumido carne cruda desde hace siglos, por lo que resulta difĆ­cil atribuirle un inventor al filete de solomillo crudo cortado a cuchillo. Esta tĆ©cnica culinaria aparece en grandes clĆ”sicos de la literatura occidental, como en el Libro de viajes de Marco Polo, un famoso mercader veneciano del siglo XIII que viajĆ³ por el mundo y recogiĆ³ sus vivencias en una extensa obra. En uno de sus cuadernos, nos relata que en la provincia de Caragian, en China, el consumo de carne cruda era muy habitual en todos los estratos sociales. No obstante, una de las teorĆ­as mĆ”s famosas sobre el origen del steak tartar apuntarĆ­a a que fueron los jinetes tĆ”rtaros, en Mongolia, los primeros en consumirlo. Este pueblo nĆ³mada viajaba siempre a caballo: se dice que almacenaban la carne bajo las sillas de montar, para ablandarla hasta que llegaba al punto perfecto para ser degustado en crudo, lo que diĆ³ origen al ā€˜Steak tartarā€™. Lo que sĆ­ que estĆ” claro es que el steak tartar tal como lo conocemos (la receta actual, especiada y con yema de huevo) es de origen francĆ©s, ya que este plato aparece mencionado en novelas de autores franceses del siglo XIX, como Jules Verne y Victor Hugo. De hecho, ya en pleno siglo XX, el steak tartar se convirtiĆ³ en un plato de moda en todos los hoteles franceses. Cuentan que el reconocido chef Auguste Escoffier (1846-1935), considerado el creador de la cocina francesa moderna, aƱadiĆ³ salsa tĆ”rtara a la receta, y por eso pasaron a llamarlo steak tartar. Esta historia es mĆ”s fiable que la que remonta el origen del steak tartar a los jinetes tĆ”rtaros, pero que cada cual elija su versiĆ³n favorita! #guijuelo #salamanca (en VIRƓ Gastrobar) https://www.instagram.com/p/CX9Bcnbt6Pv/?utm_medium=tumblr

The oldest district of CĆ³rdoba and one of its essential visits is undoubtedly ā€˜La JuderĆ­aā€™. Located in the heart of the city, the Jewish quarter is a labyrinth of narrow and cobbled streets where you can review the history of CĆ³rdoba and understand the lifestyle of the three cultures that coexisted for centuries: Christians, Jews and Muslims. #cĆ³rdoba #cordobaespaƱa #cordobaesp #cordobaspain #visitcordoba #cordobacapital #lajuderiacordoba #jewishquarter #cordobaturismo #cordobacity #cĆ³rdobaentretodos #cordobazo #cordobaver (en Barrio de La JuderĆ­a- CĆ³rdoba, EspaƱa) https://www.instagram.com/p/CXtlIrfNaH-/?utm_medium=tumblr

Gastronomy of CĆ³rdoba

Due to its geographical position, Cordovan cuisine is based on the products of both the Sierra (the hilly region to the north) as well as the CampiƱa (the river valley). The Sierra region provides game and livestock, whereas the Guadalquivir river valley area provides olive oil, vegetables and Montilla-Moriles wine, all essential ingredients in the local cuisine.

Mosque-Cathedral of CĆ³rdoba šŸ•Œ: Perhaps the most iconic monument in the entire city. Built in 785, this temple became one of the most beautiful examples of Islamic art. And it is that, with its cultural mix, it has become a unique piece of architectural art; since, its arches and columns shelter inside the vestiges of a Christian cathedral in the center. A truly impressive monument, which overwhelms us with the amount of detail around it. www.cyndivision.com #cĆ³rdoba #cordobaespaƱa #mezquitadecordoba #espaƱa #andalucĆ­a #spain #surdeespaƱa #visitcordoba #cordobaesp #cordobaspain #cordobaarchitecture #romanoscordobeses #juderia (en Mezquita-catedral de CĆ³rdoba) https://www.instagram.com/p/CXrXtzQtwzu/?utm_medium=tumblr
