Night visit to Medina Azahara

Would you like to visit Medina Azahara at night, under the light of the stars?

Welcome to our guided night tour of Medina Azahara. A unique experience in which you will be able to contemplate the Caliphate citadel in a unique way, and you will be able to enjoy its beautiful night lighting.

If you are from Córdoba or come to do tourism, you cannot miss this experience in which culture, history and architecture go hand in hand.

This is our night route through Medina Azahara

The night visit to Medina Azahara is an opportunity to delight in the myth of the shining city and its legends, dodging the high temperatures of Córdoba, and discovering that the nights of Córdoba deserve a setting like Medina Azahara

The visit takes place mainly in the archaeological site, ruins of the ancient city, where the guide will explain each of the rooms and locations that we visit. This tour will be linked with information regarding the organization of that caliphate that for almost a century dominated almost the entire Iberian Peninsula.

The Medina Azahara site is located 7 km from the city of Córdoba. Upon arrival, we find the visitor reception center, museum where some of the most relevant pieces of Caliphate art are exhibited, but can only be visited during daytime.

The archaeological site and the visitor center are connected by a shuttle bus (cost €2.5) that leaves every 15 – 20 minutes. The use of this shuttle is compulsory as the site cannot be accessed by private car. On the other hand, the entrance to the site is free.

The visit lasts approximately 1 and a half hours. Always depending on the pace of the visitors.

Last night I was with my friends visiting Madinat Al Zahra and it was wonderful. Our guide, Antonio, knew how to liven up the visit all the time with touches of humor. In addition, I found him to be a great professional and very attentive. We learned a lot and I was able to visualize in my mind perfectly what he was explaining. I would definitely repeat.
