What To Expect
Explore the main cultural symbols of Cordoba, and discover the richness of an heritage that mixes the history of each population that left its trace.
We will meet in front of the monumental Alcazar of the Caholic Kings, to start our guided tour through the main monuments. The Alcazar is actually an ancient fortress, which served as residence for the Catholic Kings during 8 years. Marvel at the charm of the perfectlly designed gardens decorated by beautiful fountains. Don't miss the amazing view of Cordoba from an ancient lookspot that served once to defend the city.
Later, we will visit Cordoba's Synagogue, located in the Jewish quarter and built in 1350. Its architecture stands out paradoxically by its Moorish style. Historically the Synagogue is really important as it is one of the three remaining synagogues from the pre-expulsion of Jewish population in Spain during the Inquisition period. It is a National Monument since the 19th century.
Then, we will explore the Juderia, the Jewish quarter, an outstanding old quarter with cobbled stone streets, incrediblly well-preserved buildings that date back to the middle ages and houses with the typical patios!
The tour finishes with, probably, the most impressive monument of Cordoba: the Cathedral inside a Mosque, or the Great Mosque-Cathedral. The typical Moorish building dates back to the middle age, but it has been reappropiated by the Catholics since 1236, and nowadays it is officially the Cathedral of Cordoba. Lear about the history of a religious war that left a jewel of the cultural heritage and which is now protected by the UNESCO.
