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.

What People Are Saying About Cordoba

Lidia was awesome: intertaining, energetic, knowledgeble

We enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. We went to the same places the day before but returning there with Lidia mad a big difference. We've also appreciated a discount for the next day tour of Jewish Quarter, Hammam, and Alcazar with Christina. This tour was also very good. Thank you GetYourGuide!

Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba History Tour Reviewed by John, 11/06/2016

Engaging, knowledgeable guides an excellent introduction to Córdoba

Our guide, Angie, from Córdoba a Pie was a pleasure to be with. We had a leisurely stroll round the main places of interest, including the Jewish quarter, the Arab Baths and the Alcazar. When talking about the Inquisition we also found out that Angie was a Monty Python fan nobody expected that !!! For the visit to the Mesquita a second guide took over. This building has to be one of the places to see before you die. Its over 1200 years of history make it unique.
