C贸rdoba in a quick stop // 馃嚨馃嚬 Uma r谩pida visita por C贸rdoba

馃嚞馃嚙 The last couple of weeks we have been in the Extremadura region of Spain. Extremadura conquered our hearts and, of course, we will speak about it in the next posts. However, seizing a full weekend off, a very rare thing, we made a road trip south to the region of 鈥淎ndaluc铆a鈥 and aiming the magnificent Ronda (that we already told you about in this post). As we wanted to get to know more of the region, on the way back to Extremadura we made a quick stop in C贸rdoba. We enjoyed walking in the city and losing ourselves through the streets, without a fixed plan, in this city considered the horse capital and World Heritage Site.

C贸rdoba is full of lively and colourful streets, with energetic stores and appealing restaurants. You are walking down the streets and you are invited to taste some sweets from one of the 鈥渢iendas鈥 (stores).

We highlight a few things that were more impressive to us during our quick visit while we were exploring C贸rdoba.

馃嚨馃嚬 As 煤ltimas semanas temos estado pela Estremadura, em Espanha, uma regi茫o que nos conquistou e de que falaremos nas pr贸ximas publica莽玫es do blog. Mas aproveitando um fim-de-semana inteiro de folga, coisa rara, rum谩mos a sul at茅 脿 regi茫o da Andaluzia com destino 脿 magn铆fica Ronda (de que j谩 vos fal谩mos neste post), e querendo conhecer um pouco mais da regi茫o, na viagem de volta, fizemos uma r谩pida paragem por C贸rdoba. Caminhando e perdendo-nos, sem rumo certo, pelas ruas desta cidade considerada a capital do cavalo e Patrim贸nio Cultural da Humanidade.

C贸rdoba 茅 repleta de ruas positivamente agitadas e coloridas, com lojas vivas e restaurantes apelativos. Passeias pelas ruas e 茅s simpaticamente convidado a provar uns torr玫es por uma das 鈥渢iendas鈥. Ao longo da nossa r谩pida visita, e percorrendo as ruas de C贸rdoba, destacamos algumas das coisas que nos chamaram mais a aten莽茫o.

Plaza de las Tendillas

馃嚞馃嚙 The square 鈥渄e las Tendillas鈥 is the most majestic plaza of C贸rdoba with its splendid buildings full of statues. The architecture surrounding the Plaza reminded us for a second of the Avenue of the Allies in Oporto.

馃嚨馃嚬 A 鈥淧laza de las Tendillas鈥 茅 a pra莽a mais imponente de C贸rdoba com os seus edif铆cios grandiosos repletos de est谩tuas. A arquitetura que a rodeia fez-nos lembrar um pouco a Avenida dos Aliados no Porto.

Puente Romano

馃嚞馃嚙 From the Roman Bridge, we have one of the most impressive images over C贸rdoba: the bridge, the river, the Door of the Bridge, the Mosque-Cathedral, the palaces and the Alc谩zar 鈥 undoubtfully a dreamy scenario!

On the side of the bridge and along the river we can catch a sight of old mills, one of them still with a big wheel that is now one of the favourite spots for cats to sunbath.

馃嚨馃嚬 Da Puente Romano temos uma das vis玫es mais impressionantes sobre C贸rdoba: a ponte, o rio, a 鈥淧uerta del Puente鈥, a Mesquita-Catedral, os pal谩cios e Alc谩zar 鈥 um cen谩rio verdadeiramente de sonhos!

Ao lado da ponte, e ao longo do rio podemos avistar velhos moinhos, um deles ainda com uma grande nora que 茅 agora um dos locais preferidos por gatos para os seus banhos de sol.

馃嚞馃嚙 Every corner in C贸rdoba has a story to tell about the many folks that there crossed their paths. It is a city that proudly shows its Arabic heritage and uses that as a tourist attraction: preserving that side in all the city, the different Moorish details, the traditional souvenirs that embrace that heritage, names written in Arabic that can be found in many places or you can ask to have your own personalized name in Arabic.
