What Is Included in our Cordoba Day Trip?
Private Transfer to Cordoba
Your tour begins with a comfortable private transfer from your accommodation to Cordoba. Upon arrival, meet your knowledgeable guide, who will introduce you to the city’s rich history and the day’s itinerary.
Tour of Cordoba's Jewish Quarter
Our exploration begins with a walk through the Jewish Quarter, or ‘Judería,’ a labyrinth of narrow, winding streets and whitewashed houses that transport you back to medieval times.
Visit the Synagogue, one of the best-preserved in Spain, and the statue of Maimonides, the great Jewish philosopher born in Cordoba.
Discover the Wonder of the Mezquita
Next, we delve into the city’s crowning glory – the Mezquita, or Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba.
This architectural marvel symbolizes Cordoba’s many religious changes over the centuries. Initially a Christian Visigothic church, it was transformed into a mosque during Islamic rule and later converted back into a cathedral after the Reconquista.
As you explore its seemingly endless array of candy-striped arches and exquisite mihrab, your guide will unravel the building’s rich tapestry of history.
Cordoban Cuisine & Visit the Alcazar
After a busy morning of exploration, it’s time to unwind and sample local Cordoban cuisine at one of the city’s traditional tapas bars.
Enjoy specialties such as ‘salmorejo,’ a chilled tomato soup, and ‘flamenquín,’ a pork loin dish, before we continue our journey to the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos.
This fortress, with its stunning gardens and awe-inspiring views, was the residence of the Christian Kings Ferdinand and Isabella during the Reconquista.
Stroll Across the Roman Bridge & Visit the Calahorra Tower
As the afternoon fades, we stroll across the Roman Bridge, a testament to Cordoba’s Roman past, offering spectacular views of the Mezquita and the city.
Our last stop is the Calahorra Tower. This ancient fortification at the bridge’s southern end now houses a museum dedicated to explaining the cultural legacy of Al-Andalus, the Islamic period in Spain.
