Know More about this tour

Complete two hours guided tour around Crdoba's monumental and historic centre.

Meeting point: Calahorra Tower at the Roman bridge, wich was originally a fortified roman gate controlling access to the bridge and altered during the Islamic and Christian periods.

The Bridge Gate: Roman Crdoba was a walled town that expanded out to the river during the 1st century AD when the first emperors reconstructed the city. Crdoba has many entrances, but the main one stood in the same place as the Puerta del puente or the bridge gate (16th century) stands today.

The famous Jewish quarter and the monuments of historical Cordoba in which Jews, Muslims and Christians lived together, including The Synagogue, one of three old synagogues that remain in Spain; The impressive walls of the islamic Omeyan Alczar and the Christian Monarchs' Alczar; Calle Judos, the street at the centre of the Jewish quarter that gets to Plaza Tiberades, wich pays homage to Maimonides, a great Jewish philosopher, theologian and doctor; Crdoba's municipal souq, or zoco in Spanish, an open-air market established in the 1950s inside a 16th century Renaissance-Mudejar palace.

The maze of narrow streets around The Great Mosque and Cathedral, visiting Calleja de la Hoguera where the mosque named the Mezquita de los Andaluses is found; Calle de las Flores, where we can enjoy one of Crdoba's most typical images with the Cathedral tower popping up between the city's walls; The narrow Callejn del Pauelo, one of the narrowest streets in Europe that is another perfect example of Medieval Islamic town planning.
