Our Cordoba excursion takes you back in time to the glorious kingdom of Al Andalus. Set gracefully on the edge of the legendary Guadalquivir river, Cordoba has got a lot to offer to the day traveler.
This full-day excursion from Seville will take you back in time to the glorious kingdom of Al-Andalus. Cordoba, situated on the legendary Guadalquivir River, boasts monuments to both its Islamic and Christian heritage.
See its mosque known as the Mezquita, a fine example of Islamic architecture that features intricate arches. Note the contrast with the Gothic style of the city’s World Heritage-listed cathedral.
Walk along the narrow alleys of the former Jewish quarter. As your walk continues, take a look inside any of the typical patios, known as cordobeses, and enjoy the sight of colorful pots of flowers hanging from the walls.
See the Real Caballerizas, a fortress that witnessed the grandeur of Cordoba as the kingdom´s metropolis. Take time to stop at one of the many traditional bars in the old town and reward your palate with Spanish delicacies such as flamenquin or salmorejo.
