The magic of Cordoba lies in the legacy of the different cultures that have inhabited this city. Each of them has had its moment of splendour, and its more difficult times, leaving a legacy that often lives on and remains to this day. It is important to know where we come from in order to know where we are going, and the city of Cordoba is perfect for recognising and understanding the roots of the West.
Founded on a great Roman period in which Cordoba becamen an important city, its history, its location and its people made it the “light of the West” during the Middle Ages. The coexistence of Christians, Muslims and Jews gives Cordoba a mixture of influences that are evident in every street, monument or tradition, sometimes in an obvious way, although sometimes, the essentials go unnoticed.
In Cordoba every traveller can discover a different city, as it is possible to discover great public buildings that recall the splendour of that capital of the province of Betica, or to travel to the ancient Caliphate capital of Medina Azahara, to lose oneself in a Jewish quarter with a clearly Muslim layout or to discover the rosetta stone of the art and history of the Mediterranean. The great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is the main character of a beautiful story that deserves to be told. Would you like to know it?

Cordoba’s cultural and historical heritage is so extensive that it requires several days in the city. It is therefore advisable to organise your time in the city.
The Mosque-Cathedral is undoubtedly our most visited and best-known monument, as its importance and beauty transcends all frontiers and serves as the main symbol for the city of Cordoba. Beyond the visual impact of its arches and columns, thi building summarises history and art, which is why it is advisable to visit it with a guide.
The city of the three cultures has a Mosque, a Cathedral and a Synagogue, all of them built within the Jewish Quarter. This old quarter of Cordoba is a delight in itself, with these and other important monuments and attractions.
The Synagogue of Cordoba is the second most visited monument in the city. This 14th century Mudejar temple reveals in its walls and its decoration the unique history of the city of Cordoba, as it was both a Hebrew oratory and also a Christian chapel.
In the vicinity you will find the Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs, home to the rulers governing the city along the centuries. Inside the building you will see Roman, Islamic and Christian vestiges. Nowadays, its beautiful gardens are its main attraction and they are the perfect setting for different public events.
The courtyards of Cordoba couldn’t be more popular. By designating them a World Heritage Site, UNESCO recognised how the people of Cordoba turned their humble dwellings into truly beautiful places, transforming them into small inland paradises.
The city of Medina Azahara is a great attraction for visitors interested in history. Built as the capital of the new Caliphate of Córdoba, the “shining city” dazzled the world with its beauty and symbolised all the Umayyad power.
Cordoba itself is an open-air museum, as you will find many attractions in its streets, squares and neighbourhoods. In addition to the Jewish quarter, the Axerquia is also a walled enclosure with great attractions, where you can visit the Fernandine churches (ancient mosques converted into Christian temples), the Plaza de la Corredera, the Cristo de los Faroles, the Plaza del Potro, the temple of Claudio Marcelo…
A weekend in Cordoba is the perfect opportunity to get to know the city. The wide range of cultural options is combined with a lively and entertaining city that offers numerous leisure and entertainment options.
After visiting the Mosque, the surrounding area, the Jewish Quarter, is an essential place to start discovering the wide range of attractions that Cordoba has to offer. In this neighbourhood and its surroundings you will find numerous attractions such as the synagogue, the Zoco square, the street of flowers, Handkerchief Alley, the Roman bridge, the tower of the Calahorra.
The courtyards of Cordoba are an original way in which you can discover important aspects of our history and customs, for far from being small botanical gardens, they are a reflection of the different cultures that inhabited the city, and which we began to embellish with so many flowers in the 20th century.
The city of Medina Azahara is an essential visit to get to know the history of our city. 7 km from the city and facing south, the ancient Caliphate capital of white walls and golden roofs was visible from Cordoba as a bright spot. Cordoba thus presented itself to the world as the “light of the West”.
Our highly qualified and accredited tour guides are university-trained and are experts in the history, monuments and culture of the city.
