|2 Euro Commemorative Design 2010|
|The coin commemorates the first Spanish site – the historical centre of Cordoba – to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1984. It portrays the 'forest of pillars' of the Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, one of the greatest and oldest examples of Islamic art in Europe.
Built between the 8th and 10th centuries, the Mosque was later consecrated as a Christian cathedral and underwent successive transformations.
The coin is the first in a new series dedicated to the Spanish sites included in the UNESCO World Heritage list, which will be issued every year starting in 2010.
The inner part of the coin depicts the interior of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. On the left, the Mint mark. Below, the name of the issuing country followed by the year of issue ‘ESPAÑA 2010’.
The outer ring of the coin depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
