Full description
Join your guide at the meeting point and head to Calleja de la Hoguera, a narrow street from the Arabic era and see a historic mosque. Historians believe Cordoba once hosted over a thousand mosques in the 10th-century. From Calleja de la Hoquera you will head to the Jewish Quarter with origins from the 14th-century. 

Starting in Plaza Cardenal Salazar, see the statue of Algafequi, the first doctor to operate on eyes in Europe in the 12th-century. An old hospital from the 18th-century stands there now as a university as well. Walk to Capilla Mudejar de San Bartolomé, an old arabesque style Christian chapel built by a Jewish convert. Learn about the building's hidden history from your guide who will share its secrets.

Head to the souk, a craft work market with the local products typical of Cordoba. After time in the souk see a breathtaking medieval synagogue. The synagogue was built in the 14th-century and is one of the few Jewish monuments that has survived a tumultuous history. 

Your tour ends at the Alcazar of the Catholic Monarchs. Learn about the history of the Catholic Monarchs and the role the Alcazar played in the city's past.
