Important InfoInfo
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, Pl. Campo Santo de los Martires, 14004 Cordoba Spain

The Alcázar (castle) of Cordoba, with its thick defensive walls, served both as a fortress and a palace, and is a perfect illustration of the development of Cordoban architecture through the ages. Roman and Visigoth ruins lie side by side with Arabic remains in this magnificent building, which was once the favourite residence of the different rulers of the city. However, when Cordoba was taken by Fernando III «the Saint» in 1236, the former Caliphal Palace was in a pitiful, ruinous state. Alfonso X «the Wise» began the restoration work, which was finished off during the reign of Alfonso XI. It has fulfilled many different functions over the years, such as Headquarters of the Inquisition, or a prison (first half of the 20th century).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Mezquita Cathedral de Cordoba, Calle del Cardenal Herrero 1, 14003 Cordoba Spain

the beauty of Córdoba’s great mosque, with its remarkably serene and spacious interior. One of the world's greatest works of Islamic architecture, the Mezquita hints, with all its lustrous decoration, at a refined age when Muslims, Jews and Christians lived side by side and enriched their city with a heady interaction of diverse, vibrant cultures.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Jewish Quarter (Juderia), Cordoba Spain

Córdoba's old Jewish quarter consists of a fascinating network of narrow lanes, more atmospheric and less commercialised than in Seville although souvenir shops have emerged.

Anna was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable and personable. However, it was difficult for everyone to find the bus when it was time to leave.

Picked up from the hotel and driven to Cordoba where our tour guide Ana met our small English speaking group. Ana was a wonderful guide, very enthusiastic, lots of interesting stories, and passionate about sharing the history and culture of her home town. She was the highlight of my trip to Spain!

We started the tour with a little confusion where the pick up point was, but this was quickly solved and we spent the rest of the tour very happy. Seeing the sites in Cordoba is a must for anyone visiting this region, simply breathtaking and our tour guide was so informative. Great choice of restaurants for lunch as well.

Very much enjoyed our day trip from Seville to Cordoba. Our comfortable bus arrived as planned. Because so many of us were still sleeping, the guide on the bus told us he'd share information on the way back. After a quick stop for restrooms and some breakfast, we were greeted by Anna, a wonderful guide. She kept us on a fast pace as we walked through the Alcazar, the Jewish Quarter and the Mesquita. She was highly knowledgeable and energetic, and her English was superb and her accent was charming. Well worthwhile
