Depart from selected Granada hotels in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic journey to Cordoba. Enjoy the picturesque perimeter of the Sierra Nevada mountain range as your guide sets the historical scene of the city.
Begin your tour at the colossal Catholic Cathedral, a former mosque transformed when Christians conquered Cordoba in 1236. Marvel at 1,000 candy striped pillars as you explore the magnificent Mezquita, noting the architectural amalgamation of Baroque and Renaissance elements. See sacred objects like ivory crucifixes and religious sculptures in the consecrated Cardinal’s Chapel before venturing to the next destination.
Next, stroll the narrow alleys and cobbled streets of the Jewish quarter to gain insight into the area’s turbulent past; admire Gothic architecture and roman remains before visiting one of the few synagogues still standing in Spain. Observe impressive monuments dedicated to prominent philosophers like Seneca, Averroes and Maimonides before returning to the minivan for the relaxing journey back to Granada.
