Highlights
  • Journey back to the days of the Caliphate and explore the city of Córdoba
  • Get access to the breathtaking Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba
  • Take a stroll through the Jewish Quarter and visit the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos
Full description
Depart Seville and take a scenic 1.5-hour drive to Córdoba, passing beautiful sights along the way. Arrive in the city, once considered the light of the world for its cultural treasures and many libraries, medical schools and universities. Conquered by Muslim armies in the eighth century, it became the capital of the Islamic Emirate and then the Caliphate of Córdoba, flourishing under the second Caliph, Al-Hakam II.

Admire the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba with a priority access pass, and see the golden mosaics and endless row of red and white striped arches. Stroll past hundreds of striped sugarcane columns and absorb the ecclesiastical elegance of the Moorish mosque. Gaze at elegant domes as your guide offers a captivating commentary about Córdoba’s most alluring attraction

Next, go to the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos and learn its terrible history as the seat of the Spanish Inquisition as you marvel at the beautiful gardens. Enter the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter and see whitewashed houses full of flowers. Discover the only synagogue in Andalusia, and stroll along Calle de las Flores to experience one of the most beautiful streets in Córdoba.

Benefit from some free time to walk around on your own, do some shopping and enjoy a traditional lunch. Then, journey back to Seville and get dropped off at your hotel.

Picked up at a location a few hundred yards away from our hotel ina a comfortable minibus with a fabulous, friendly, multilingual guide, Roman, and an excellent driver. The drive is about 1.5 hours but Roman kept us informed on the way with little gems of information. Met at Cordoba by a guide who specialised in your language. 2.5-3 hour guide of the palace mosque and jewish quarter at a fast pace, but very informative.

A very nice discovery but fast closing Mosque-Cathedral 11am

Visit of the Mosque-Cathedral a bit fast because it closes at 11 a.m. (Good Friday), but the guide was fascinating and still gave us a full tour. No visit to the synagogue as planned because under construction. Visit the old town with the guide. On the way back, our guide Abby throughout the Seville / Cordoba return trip, which was very interesting, made us quickly visit the village of Carmona.
