Visit the Mezquita

Walk Across the Roman Bridge

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.

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.

Lose Yourself in the Jewish Quarter (Judería)

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