  • Address: Cordoba, Spain
A heady mix of Roman, Moorish, Jewish, and Christian influence make Cordoba one of Andalucia’s most fascinating cities. Perfect for wandering, the UNESCO World Heritage–listed medieval old city is a winding network of lanes, squares, and whitewashed courtyards that take visitors on a journey back in time to the days when the city was the center of the Iberian Islamic world. Highlights include Cordoba’s 14th-century synagogue, which sits in the heart of the Old City’s maze of backstreets and is one of only a few medieval synagogues remaining in Spain. There’s also Roman history to seek out, including a Roman-era bridge, temple, and theater.

The Basics
A top destination in Andalucia, Cordoba is often visited on day trips and as a stop on multi-day itineraries through southern Spain that also include visits to areas such as Seville, Granada, Ronda, and the Costa del Sol. While there’s enough to see and experience to warrant a few days in Cordoba, travelers pressed for time can catch the highlights—the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, the Mezquita, the Jewish Quarter with the Cordoba Synagogue, and Calleja de las Flores—on a convenient day trip from Seville.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Cordoba is a must for lovers of architecture, history, and culture.
  • Choose to visit Cordoba on a day trip or as part of a multi-day guided tour through Spain.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on uneven surfaces.
  • Day trips from Seville typically last upwards of nine hours.

How to Get There
The closest commercial airports to Cordoba are in Seville, Malaga, and Madrid, so the vast majority of visitors arrive on a guided tour or by high-speed AVE train, which runs hourly from Madrid, Seville, and Malaga. From the train station, it’s about a 25-minute walk to the Old City and the Mezquita.

When to Get There
While winters in Cordoba are quite mild, the best times to visit for optimal weather are during the spring and autumn months. In summer, this is one of the hottest places in Spain, so expect temperatures around 100°F (38­°C) in July and August.

Getting Around Cordoba
Cordoba is divided into two main sections: the Old City and the modern, commercial section. Most of the major points of interest are in the Old City, which comprises the Jewish Quarter and the area surrounding the Mezquita. This historic core is small and easily navigable on foot, but horse and carriages (coches de caballo) are also available for rent to see the city the old-fashioned way.
