Why Go on a Tour of Cordoba

The magnificent Andalusian city of Cordoba is a one-of-a-kind destination where Moorish, Arabic, and Roman cultures blend together with the noisy Spanish lifestyle.

The history of Cordoba is mixed up as in any other Andalusian city: starting with the Roman times from the 2nd century BC, followed by the creation of the independent Arabian caliphate, during which Cordoba was embellished with the iconic Grand Mosque, baths and one of the largest libraries of that time. In the 13th century, Cordoba returned back to Christians and, luckily, the city managed to preserve the treasures of the different epochs till the present days.

Coming to Cordoba, you immerse into the exceptional atmosphere of the sounds of flamenco and knocking heels, amazing scents of Andalusian tapas, and the images of the famous bullfighters hanging on bar walls coupled with the grandeur of the surrounding architecture and the charms of the cobbled quarters.

The old town of Cordoba was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 for its great architectural monuments which you definitely should discover during your Cordoba walking tour. It is for sure that for the centuries of its existence, the historical center of Cordoba has not lost its charm.

You can spend hours walking through the narrow streets and admiring the beautifully preserved medieval houses with fancy balconies and courtyards. During such a stroll you should definitely visit the impressive Roman Bridge across the Guadalquivir River, housing the Calahorra Tower at the southern part of the bridge, which is the only architectural monument of its kind in the entire world. In addition, don’t forget to check out the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, where the famous explorer Christopher Columbus first shared his travel plans with the Spanish king.
