Tour Cordoba's impressive historical city center, home of the Jewish community in medieval times and therefore called La Judería. It consists of a beautiful network of small streets and squares all arranged around the city’s impressive Mezquita, one of the largest mosques in the world. When the city was reconquered by the Christians in 1236 they were so awed by its beauty that they left it standing and built their cathedral in the midst of its rows of arches and columns, creating an extraordinary church-mosque. Modifications took 234 years, so the original Gothic style is combined with Baroque and Renaissance elements. Cordoba’s other treasures include El Puente Romano or old Roman bridge, the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, with its remarkable Arabian baths and Roman mosaics and an ancient Jewish synagogue, one of the few synagogues in Spain today.
You can perfectly visit Cordoba on foot with your guide from the hotel.
If you prefer we can add on a private car & driver for you to be more comfortable or to include an excursion to the nearby ruins of Medina Azahara:
Madinat al-Zahra was a magnificent, enigmatic city palace built by Abd-al Rahman III, Caliph of al-Andalus in the 10th century, one of the strongest, most powerful kingdoms in Medieval Europe. Rich marbles, gold, precious stones and the skilled work of expert artisans made his palace take on its full glory. Unfortunately the site was completely destroyed by a succession of Civil Wars after only 70 years, too short life for the beautiful fantasy city which according to popular belief was built by the Caliph to honor the love of his life, the beautiful Azahara.
