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.

Cordoba was founded by the Romans and due to its strategic importance as the highest navigable point of the Guadalquivir River, it became a port city of great importance, used for shipping Spanish olive oil, wine and wheat back to Ancient Rome. The Romans built the mighty bridge crossing the river, now called "El Puente Romano".

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.

Enjoy 1.5 hours of ultimate relaxation at Cordoba’s alluring Arabian baths, Hammam Al Ándalus! The tranquil haven exudes understated Arabian opulence at its finest, with features like candle-lit walkways, thermal plunge pools and a steam room.

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.
