In the Middle Ages, Spain and Portugal cherished a unique model of coexistence. Muslims, Jews and Christians could live together relatively in peace for eight centuries. A beautiful Andalusian culture developed in cities such as Córdoba, Toledo, Sevilla and Granada. Al-Andalus flourished as the intellectual, cultural and political center in the West. It was a glorious intellectual period for Judaism and Islam that eventually ended tragically.
