Córdoba Spain in a quick stop

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 “Andalucía” 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 Córdoba Spain. 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.

Córdoba 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 “tiendas” (stores).

We highlight a few things that were more impressive to us during our quick visit while we were exploring Córdoba Spain.

Plaza de las Tendillas – Córdoba Spain

The square “de las Tendillas” is the most majestic plaza of Córdoba 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.

Córdoba’s Mosque-Cathedral

The orange trees are everywhere but they look even more majestic in the interior plaza shared by the mosque and the Cathedral, both with such monumentality!

Puente Romano – Córdoba Spain

From the Roman Bridge, we have one of the most impressive images over Córdoba: the bridge, the river, the Door of the Bridge, the Mosque-Cathedral, the palaces and the Alcázar – 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.

Jewish neighbourhood – Córdoba Spain

The tight streets we go walking by and many magical corners, where we can also find courtyards full of life and inviting coffee shops.

Here we can also visit the Synagogue.

Every corner in Córdoba Spain 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.

“Hasta Pronto” Córdoba!
