On the banks of the Guadalquivir, Córdoba is a city that blends Roman, Arab and Jewish cultures. The best way to explore it and take in everything it has to offer is to stroll its narrow streets. Don't forget your camera: streets and avenues, a historic centre bursting with history and hidden patios make any visit to Cordoba a delight that you will want to remember and repeat. There are countless incredible places to visit like the Mosque-Cathedral, Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, Medina-Azahara, to name just a few. Wait no more!

Tapas in the Plaza de la Corredera is unmissable if you want to sample some of the city's most typical dishes: salmorejo, aubergines with honey, flamenquines, etc. Simply delicious!

It is also worth taking the city in from a height from Torre de la Calahorra. This Islamic fortress offers unique views of the Guadalquivir and the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba.
