The African heritage is an important component and contribution to the cultural heritage preserved at times consciously, and at times unconsciously, by the society of Cordoba. This legacy is well used by tourist guides and the Route of the Slave Cordoba Group to develop various activities related to cultural tourism in order to strengthen local identity and, above all, to promote awareness and allow tourists and citizens to appreciate the cultural legacy of Cordoba, particularly the African heritage.
