Cordoba is one of Andalucia’s most atmospheric cities, with its low-rise white-washed buildings, famous flower-filled patios and multicultural heritage – a melting pot of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. As well as the famous Mezquita, once the largest mosque in the world, you can wander the maze of streets in the Juderia.

The options are a tour of the famous Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral, a tour of the Juderia, the old Jewish Quarter in Cordoba, a tour around Roman Cordoba, a Sephardic tour of Jewish Heritage in Cordoba, and a cool night time Cordoba walking tour.

Andalucia is justifiably famous for its excellent gastronomic scene. Using first-class ingredients grown throughout the region and caught along its extensive coastline, such as jamon iberico, tomatoes and prawns, cutting-edge dishes are prepared and presented with typically Spanish flair and innovation, although the simple produce - cheese, olives, almonds - are delicious enough to provide superb simple snacks too.

In Cordoba you can enjoy doing many activities: tapas, gardens, parks, golf, water parks, shopping, zoo, guided tours, arab baths, art galleries and more.

Cordoba´s Mezquita, once the largest mosque in the world, is the most well-known and outstanding monument in Cordoba. In order to truly experience the mezquita and its surroundings, we think that the best thing to do is to stay in a hotel nearby, possibly with spectacular views of this terrific building.

There is not usually much difficulty in finding a taxi when you need it. They are always white and have a logo on the door which displays their official number. Learn enough Spanish to explain where you are going as most drivers won't speak English. The meter marks up the basic fare, however a supplement may be added after midnight and during fiestas or public holidays.

Madinat al-Zahra was declared a UNESCO world heratige site on 1st July 2018. We are in the year 400 of the Hegira, 1010 AD of our era. On the southern slopes of Jebel al-Arus, the Bride's Mountain, the marble, jasper and precious metals of the city of Madinat al-Zahra gleam in the morning sun among silver-leafed olive groves.
