Cordoba Tourism

Cordoba is a sepia coloured Spanish town, drenched in iconic history and a celebration of everything Spanish.  A glorious example of religious harmony, monuments like the Mezquita transport you to times when religions co-existed and collectively influenced an incredible marriage of architectural designs and cultural pot pourri.

Situated beside the Rio Guadalquivir River, Cordoba exists in narrow cobblestone alleys and flower-lined patios that will soothe your soul and make you fall in love with this wonderland the minute you set foot here. Travel to Cordoba is truly a travel back in time where life was laid back and people were friendly.

The old Jewish quarter is where you will lose yourself in the labyrinth of plazas with their extraordinary setting; fountains adorned with mythical statues and surrounded by picturesque Spanish balconies. What your Cordoba tourist guide will not be able to explain to you is that Cordoba is really a feeling; it makes you imagine how it would have been to live in an equal world and leaves you feeling warm and hopeful.

Cordoba has handled its touristic fame with much class and humility, it makes you feel right at home with its warm sunshine and old world charm. The tapas bars and restaurants are typically Andalusian, serving some of the best Spanish fare that your mouth would have ever tasted.

There’s so much to look forward to in this Spanish fiesta; like a page out of a medieval fairytale, Cordoba is truly a traveller’s dream come true. Your Cordoba trip is sure to be one of your most memorable journeys of a lifetime!
