Stroll, together with us, along the most impressive highlights, small streets, alleys, and patios in this cozy typical Andalusian town. Your English-speaking guide meets you at your accommodation in Cordoba, from where you will start your walking/rolling tour. Your guide tells you everything about the history, the locals, and the architecture you see.
During this tour, you visit the Jewish neighborhood, Plaza Corredera, and the Synagogue. Plaza Corredera is the most famous square in the city. Here you find several terraces, many restaurants, and galleries around the square. This Synagogue is one of the three remaining Jewish Prayer houses in Spain.
You also visit the Roman bridge across the Guadalquivir river, built by Romans in the first century. However, over time, the bridge is often reconstructed and expanded. The current architecture is primarily a medieval reconstruction. The bridge has 16 arches and is 247 meters long.
The next stop is the charming Alcazar, the Alcazar served as a court, fortress and a palace. Today it is a historical monument. Furthermore, the castle has two courtyards with ponds, and inside, you see the Roman mosaic walls. Walk through the gardens, which are inspired by the Moorish gardens and patios.
Your tour continues with a visit to Plaza Tendillas, a bustling square in the center of the city, where you admire the several fountains and beautiful architecture around the square. Moreover, Plaza Tendillas is a popular place to recover after a busy day. There are many shops, restaurants, and cafés. Furthermore, we visit Corredera square, a magnificent square that covers about 67,000 square feet. And, the last square we see is Plaza del Potro, a small square but definitely worth a visit. Here you find a little souvenir shop, a fountain, and several restaurants.
Furthermore, you see Baños Califales, an Arabian bathhouse, and you visit several patios in the city.
At the end of the tour, you walk by the famous Mezquita, a huge, elegant cathedral in the historical city center of Cordoba, built between 756 and 788. Before the Mezquita became a cathedral in 1236, it functioned as a mosque. Therefore it carries the name Mezquita, which means Mosque in Spanish. The Mezquita is a unique monument with a bell tower, 860 marble pillars, and a beautiful dome inside the cathedral. During several renovations over the past centuries, Moorish and Christian elements were added. To find more information about the Mezquita and its accessibility, read this blog post.
After the walking/rolling tour, you can include a private guided tour of the Mezquita with English speaking guide. By adding this visit, your tour takes approximately one hour longer.
