The Parador in Córdoba is actually outside of the city of Córdoba to the north and provides the perfect starting point for discovering the wonders of Córdoba province. It is built upon the ruins of what was once the summer palace of Abderramán I.
Nestled into the foothills of the Córdoban mountain range and surrounded by trees and greenery this location is reported to be about 4 degrees cooler than the provincial capital, thus making it the ideal place to stay while you’re exploring the “City of the Caliph’s”.
The Córdoba Parador is light and airy with a friendly dining room that regularly cooks up excellent versions of the best regional dishes. Don’t miss the salmorejo Cordobés, a hearty local version of Spanish gazpacho (a cold, tomato-based soup).
