WHAT IS IT LIKE?
The Córdoba Parador is a light, airy; modern building in the residential neighbourhood of Brillante, 5km from the Mezquita. Guest rooms are spacious and stylish, with marble floors and sophisticated shades of olive green and beige. All have beautiful views of the city, while suites and some superior doubles have balconies.
The restaurant offers excellent versions of the best regional dishes. Don’t miss the salmorejo cordobés, a thicker local version of gazpacho (chilled tomato soup), almond gazpacho, and churrasco in salsa verde. It has a large terrace with beautiful panoramic views over the city.
The hotel has a charging point for electric cars, as well as meeting rooms for private family or business functions.
WHAT IS ITS HISTORY?
The Parador is built upon the site of the summer palace of Abderramán I (also known as Abd al-Rahman I), the eighth-century Caliph of Cordoba, from the Umayyad dynasty. Under his reign the construction of the Great Mosque of Cordoba was started, as well as roads and aqueducts being built.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
The Parador has a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, children's play area, and padel and tennis courts. Members have free use of the Gym Sierra, close to the hotel.
Next to the Parador is the Arruzafa Golf Academy, offering a nine-hole pitch & putt with lengths between 41 and 56m, and a total of 21,000 m2. There is also a 6,633 m2 practice fairway, a 585 m2 putting green, and a 140m-practice tee with 20 positions.
For those who prefer a round of golf, Club de Golf Los Villares is 8km away.
The hotel is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area, including the Parque Natural Sierra de Hornachuelos, by bike.
