The Triumphal Columns os San Rafael

The Triumphal Columns of San Rafael, patron saint of Cordoba, are symbols of the city.

The most notable and magnificent column in the city stands between the Puerta del Puente (better known as Triumphal Arch) and the Great Mosque, and is erected on an embossed pedestal and flanked by fluted columns.

The sculpture, carried out by Verdiguier and completed in 1781, was commissioned to pay homage to the archangel for having spared the city during a terrible earthquake.
