The Andalusian cities of Seville and Cordoba are famous for Flamenco. Separated by less than 100 miles, they are often compared to two beautiful sisters, one daring and cosmopolitan, the other modest and solemn. Their histories and origins are connected, yet at some point they grew to be quite different in temperament and appearance.
How did history cause two cities less than 100 miles away from each other evolve such different personalities?
