City of Caliphs: Self Guided Tour of Córdoba’s History

2. City of Caliphs: Self Guided Tour of Córdoba’s History

Córdoba’s long and rich history lives on in its labyrinth of streets and, although people have occupied this city for about 7,000 years, its layout has hardly changed since Medieval times. It’s UNESCO-listed for its beautiful and fascinating historic centre, and its exuberant Festival de los Patios Cordobeses, held annually in May. On this walking tour, tour producer, Ben Barclay, tells you about the history that unfolded on these winding streets and picturesque patios, in what was once by far the largest city in Western Europe. The tour starts at the Mirador Mezquita de Córdoba, a viewpoint overlooking the stunning Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. You’ll enter the old town through Puerta del Puente, the old city gate, after crossing the Roman Bridge of Córdoba. As you wind your way through the maze of medieval streets, you’ll be immersed in the city’s richly interwoven Roman, Muslim, Christian and Jewish heritage. You’ll see several important structures and lesser-known treasures including the Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs (an ancient fortress), the Baños del Alcázar Califal (the Caliphal Baths), and the Córdoba Synagogue. In the middle of the tour, you’ll briefly step into the modern city before returning to the charming alleys of the Jewish Quarter. After walking along the famous flower-filled Patios Cordobeses, you’ll wrap up the tour in front of the Puerta de Sevilla.

Cordoba Private Guided Walking Tour

4. Cordoba Private Guided Walking Tour

Cordoba is a city away from the stresses of time, with its flowering gardens and white-washed walls, but it also bears witness to a unique historical heritage. Once the capital of the Moorish domain in the Iberian peninsula, it was once home to one million people and where multicultural and multiethnic artisans and scholars flourished. See the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, built along the city’s old Roman Walls of 206 BC. Arabic for “palace”, the Alcázar was a medieval fortress that was expanded to a larger palace with baths, gardens and one of the largest libraries in the West. After the conquest of Cordoba, it became the primary residence of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella and was the site where they met Christopher Columbus before his first voyage to the Americas. Pass the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, a 6th-century Islamic mosque that was built on the site of a Christian temple dating back to the Visigoths, turned back into a Catholic cathedral in 1236 after the Reconquista. Walk through the most picturesque street, the Calleja de las Flores, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994 and chosen as the most beautiful Spanish street by the magazine “Trendencias”.

Sensational, a very complete visit where you learn and have fun at the same time. Great to do with the family

Nice to get to know Córdoba, but 1 or 2 translation errors.
