Córdoba


Walking through the streets of Cordoba is like going from one period in history to another. This city in Andalusia has a unique wealth of monuments. Its historic centre has the UNESCO World Heritage designation, and this is not only on account of the Great Mosque. Why don't you come and discover it for yourself?

Over the centuries, the different peoples and cultures who settled in Cordoba left a priceless legacy of monuments in the streets of the city. If you come to southern Spain, then make a note to visit this destination. This city in Andalusia had all of Europe in awe during the Middle Ages. When you see its stunning heritage, you will understand why.

The most important monument in Cordoba is its Great Mosque. It is considered the most important Islamic monument in the West, and is doubtless one of the world's most fascinating works of art. Its "forest" of columns, its two-tone arches and its decor, along with the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements of the Christian cathedral built within it make this a unique, stunning architectural site.

Besides the Great Mosque you will find other magnificent buildings in this city. A gentle stroll around the historic centre will take you to the Alcázar (Palace) of the Christian Monarchs, with its beautiful gardens, its Moorish baths, and the Mosaic Room, where you can see the wonderful collection of Roman mosaics found beneath Plaza de la Corredera Square. Head for the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter where you can admire the beautiful plasterwork of its Synagogue. Also worth visiting are the Medina Azahara archaeological site, the typical Cordoba patios at Viana Palace, the Potro Inn, mentioned in Don Quixote, the Baroque Merced Convent, Calahorra Tower...

The list of monuments is long, so it is a good idea to head for one of Cordoba's Tourist Offices to make sure you don't get lost. You can also discover Cordoba in an unusual, attractive way, with two special tourist programmes. The first, Cordoba Walks, is a nocturnal guided tour, exploring the old town on foot. It also includes something to eat in a traditional tavern and dramatised scenes where illustrious figures will tell you historic stories about the city.

The second, The Secrets of Cordoba, is an original idea that all the family will love. Here you have fun pretending to be a detective as you discover Cordoba's cultural heritage: the aim is to answer six questions related to the city's monuments, museums, streets and squares in 48 hours. To solve the mysteries you have to visit each place. If your answers are correct, then a prize awaits you at the Tourist Office.

In Spain, enjoying art and culture is an unforgettable experience. In Cordoba too: start planning your holiday and come and see for yourself.
