The magnificent city of Cordoba was founded by the Romans and due to its strategic location as the highest navigable point of the Guadalquivir River, it became a port city of great importance. Cordoba is easy accessible from Malaga, with the “Ave”, the new high speed train getting you there in under an hour.
Some of the many incredible sights to see in Cordoba are, “La Mezquita” The Grand Mosque, “La Juderia” The Jewish Quarter, “La Alcazaba” the fort and “El Palacio de Viana” one of the city's most beautiful palaces.
The best time of year to visit Cordoba is in May; there's lots going on, for example:
El Concurso de Patios
Where local residents decorate their patios with hundreds of flowers and compete for the award of the best patio in Cordoba!
The town’s annual fair. Where the city is overcome with flamenco, tapas, festivities and all things colourful.
La Cata de Vinos
A wine tasting event that takes place every year in Cordoba. A great way to experience one of the town’s traditions and also indulge in a couple of glasses of the local produce!
