7 Great Attractions In Cordoba

A visit to Cordoba is a rare opportunity to see the breathtaking results when Spanish, Islamic, and Ancient Roman architecture combines. With some of the highest temperatures in Spain, it's a great spring destination. Here's what to see when you get there.

Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba

This is Cordoba's most famous sightseeing spot, so arrive early to avoid the crowds. Once inside the huge spectacle, the many-arched interior is awe inspiring.

Alcázar of Córdoba

A pretty Spanish castle offering wonderfully manicured gardens with shimmering ponds and a Moorish bathhouse. Lovely on a warm day, you can tour the grounds and palace for 4.50€.

Roman bridge of Córdoba

Built in the early 1st century BC, this bridge across the Guadalquivir river is an impressive testament to Roman engineering. Walk across, or get a good view from the south bank.

Calahorra Tower

This fortified gate lies in the historic city and was built to protect the Roman bridge. Get access to the museum for just 4.50€, where you can bone up on Cordoban history.

Roman temple of Córdoba

Construction of this Roman temple began during the reign of Emperor Claudius and took some 40 years. Built entirely in marble, it was once one of the grandest in the empire.

San Pedro

This basilica lends its name to the surrounding barrio, where it's located within a pretty square. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and the area is bustling at night.

Palacio de la Merced

This ornate baroque building is our final sightseeing pick, but we've perhaps left the best for last. It's a real architectural gem, worth a wander around. Don't miss the gardens.

Planning Your Cordoba Visit

Football crazy

The Spanish national sport is definitely football, with Cordoba FC the favorite local team. Do a little research on the team before your visit to bond with the locals.

When should I come?

The weather is pleasant year-round, but unless you like it really hot, avoid August. You can spend a few days here living the Spanish lifestyle, but the town is also a popular day trip destination from Granada, Madrid or Seville.

Excellent tour of the core of Córdoba at night

We enjoyed the tour. The tour guide, Ana, was very knowledgeable of the history of the city and the different cultures that existed throughout the centuries. The pace of the tour was good and we saw some places which we could have never seen on our own. I highly recommend it to everyone visiting Córdoba

A local tour guide who clearly loves her city!

Elena was first class, her English was very good, her knowledge of Córdoba and its history very impressive. Her energy kept everyone alert and interested, no easy task with temperatures in the high 30's.
