Mini guide to Cordoba


Cordóba's long and glamorous history has left behind a wealth of fine buildings and an old quarter of enormous charm. This atmospheric city was made for wandering, and the fine selection of shops, restaurants and bars bring welcome relief to a day's sightseeing.

The most outstanding building and principal attraction is the glorious mosque, or Mezquita, reputed to be the best Islamic mosque in the world. It is flanked by courtyards of orange trees and is superbly decorated inside with horseshoe arches and rich mosaics.

Near the Mezquita lies the Judería, or Jewish quarter, a picturesque maze of white houses with flower- or fountain-filled patios. Among many other sights, the 15th century Palacio de los Marquéses de Viana and the Alcázar de los Reyes Católicos particularly deserve a visit. The Municipal Museum of Bullfighting commemorates the local hero, Manolete, and the bull which killed him.

The town's gardens are popular spots for resting and strolling, especially on the weekends, and include: Diego de Rivas Gardens, Alcazar Gardens and the Gardens of Vallellano, together with the Paseo de la Victoria, the main city park. They are beautifully designed with a Moorish flavour, containing ponds, fountains and aromatic plants. La Corredera Square is a picturesque, rectangular square where the first bullfights took place, and is the place to go for a taste of the local fare in one of the tapas bars or many restaurants.

If you have a car and enjoy mountain vistas and breathtaking scenery, head for the southern region of Cordóba. The whole area is scattered with tiny towns and villages set against beautiful landscapes, offering visitors an insight into local culture and history.

Cordóba Airport is only suitable for light aircraft, so the main point of entry is Seville Airport. Alternatively, AVE and Talgo 200 trains leave Madrid's Atocha and Chamartin stations about twice an hour and take about two hours to reach Cordóba.
