Visit the Mezquita

It was extended through the 9th and 10th centuries until it became the largest holy building in the Muslim world. It remains the  third-largest mosque in the ancient world, even today.

Walk Across the Roman Bridge

Begun by the Romans in the first century BCE, the stunning 16-arch bridge across the Guadalquivir River has been pivotal to trade, defense, and political power in the region since it was first built.

Explore the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos

The exterior of the palace gives little clue to the opulence and elegance of the interior, or of the gardens, which are perhaps the most exquisite feature.

Judería dates mainly from the tenth to the fifteenth centuries, and today it is one of the most picturesque areas of Córdoba with its narrow streets and whitewashed buildings.

Tantalize Your Tastebuds with Local Cuisine

Flamenquin is another local dish, a deep-fried slice of serrano ham wrapped in pork and dipped in breadcrumbs. Served with fries and mayo, it will keep you going to the next stop!
