Cordoba, following in the footsteps of Seneca



Come and discover Cordoba, a World Heritage City, in Andalusia. How? Following in the footsteps of one of the great historic thinkers - Seneca - along the Roman Cordoba Route, with tours for groups by prior appointment. Do you fancy it?

The Roman Cordoba Route unveils the historic centre of Cordoba, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, through the Roman ruins that are still preserved. An insight of what you will see on the visit:

Roman Bridge: This bridge leads to the pedestrian entrance to the walled city of Cordoba, from which we can see the Great Mosque of Cordoba.

Walls: these walls continue to remain nearly intact on the Ronda de los Tejares (North) and the Paseo de la Victoria (West). The later houses the Almodovar Gate and, behind the wall is the Synagogue. If we cross the Victory Gardens, next to the wall, we find an exhibition of the road network pertaining to the Late Roman Empire, along with the remains of the second largest amphitheatre in the Roman Empire at that time. Very nearby is the Alcázar (Fortified Palace) of the Christian Monarchs, which houses mosaics from the 2nd and 3rd centuries.

Archaeology and Ethnography Museum: the Museum is located in the Renaissance Palace of the Páez de Castillejo family and contains many of the richest testimonial objects of Cordoba during the Empire. The surroundings offer examples of the structure of noble Roman homes, such as those in the Palace of the Marquis of Carpio and the patio of the Saint Victoria School, near the Jewish Quarter.

Temples and archaeological sites: many temples were erected in Cordoba during Roman times. Today, we can see some of the columns of these temples in the area of the City Council and the Doblas Square, such as. The Roman Cordoba Route also includes two archaeological sites. Cercadilla, alongside the AVE Station, with an exhibition representing the Palace of the emperor Maximianus Herculeus. The Roman aqueduct that still carries water to this day can be seen from the exhibition. The other archaeological site is Ategua, 25 kilometres from Cordoba. It still preserves part of its wall, storage silos and remains of the urban layout, such as the columns of the temple.
