What You Can Expect

Cordoba Day Trip from Seville

Alcazar Reyes Cristianos Fortress, Cordoba

A highlight of your tour of Cordoba is a visit to the Catholic cathedral, converted from a mosque when the Christians conquered Cordoba in 1236. With nearly 1,000 pillars, the cathedral's original Gothic architecture is combined with Baroque and Renaissance elements. You'll see the remarkable Cardinal's Chapel and its treasures, including an ivory crucifix and important sculptures and paintings.

Next, you'll visit the old Jewish quarter, stepping back in time to the era of the Romans and Goths. You will see one of the few synagogues existing today in Spain, built in 1315, as well as many important monuments to Cordoba's most important sons, including the Roman philosopher Seneca, Arabian philosopher Averroes and the Jewish philosopher Maimonides.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Cordoba was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip through Spain and our Viator tour enabled us to see its highlights in one day. The tour began with our on time pick up in Seville and within 90 minutes, including one rest stop on the way ( which we thought was unnecessary ) we arrived in Cordoba. And yes there was no commentary on the way but with an early morning pick up most folks we snoozing.
Our 1st visit was to the Alcazar, which in our opinion, is not as impressive as it's counterpart in Seville so we found it dull and uninteresting. From there we took a walk through the Jewish Quarter and the Street of Flowers ( not to be missed) and then the highlight of the tour - the Mesquita. Based on previous comments Viator seems to have listen to its clients complaints. Our guide Carmen was knowledgeable, thoughtful and only gave the tour in English. And while we were initially put off by the size of the tour - we picked up 10 folks in Cordoba in addition to the 20-24 we arrived on the bus with - Carmen did an outstanding job of herding us through the sites. So bottom line - take the Viator if you don't want the hassle of driving/parking yourself and you do want a well paced, informative tour of a most beautiful mosque/cathedral.
