Promote actions that foster intercultural dialogue.


Founded in spring 2009 in Geneva by pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela, Jerusalem and Mecca, Compostela-Córdoba aims to promote new ways of 'convivencia' (living together). The name refers to two cities with a strong symbolic resonance: Compostela, which represents the values ​​of faithfulness to oneself and openness to the other, and Córdoba, which recalls the fruitful coexistence of the three Abrahamic traditions in the Middle Ages.
