The city of Córdoba will open its arms in October 2014 to offer the best of itself to all the participants in the ECWS International Watercolour Exhibition and Symposium, and  wishes of all them a most pleasant and fruitful stay among us.

Córdoba is world-wide well-known by its enormous and prodigious artistic and monumental patrimony, but we all hope that your stay among us will allow you to discover precious elements of our culture as our extensive and varied gastronomy and the reputed hospitality of the Cordoba.

As watercolourists, your visit to Córdoba will enable you to discover the infinity of shades that the city encloses for art creators. From the absolute beauty of its “encaladas” (whitewashed) streets to the chromatic variety of its “patios”, along with the pulchritude of its dusks by the Guadalquivir banks or the diversity of landscapes that offers the proximity of the mountain ranges.

As Mayor of Córdoba I wish that you have the opportunity to discover the multiple enchantments of a city that enjoys three World Heritage recognitions by UNESCO and that offers the artists a variety of extremely attractive corners to open your easels and captive their soul in a watercolour.
