Another of the main attractions of the city is the Archaeological Site of Medina Al-Zahra. The remains of what was one of the most impressive Palatal-cities of Europe. Built by the first Umayyad Caliph of Al-Andalus, Abd al-Rahman III, who wanted to show everyone through this city the power of his dynasty. A selection of the richest materials were used on it construction, in order to surprise the ambassadors of distant empires of the Middle Ages who came to Medina Al-Zahra to face with the leader of Al-Andalus. Today after a great recovery work the medieval city has become the country's largest archaeological rest of the Arab Empire.
