Cordoba (1 Day)

It will take about 1h40 from Seville to Córdoba. Córdoba shows majestically the signs of its golden age when, under the Umayyad Caliphate in the 10th century, it emerged as the most powerful and populated metropolis of the West empire. The testimony of its greatness is visible when arriving through the majestic Roman pedestrian bridge, which crosses the wide Guadalquivir river, and the magnificent Mosque, one of the largest in the world. Next to the temple, La Judería (the old Jewish quarter) preserves its synagogue and a wonderful network of white narrow streets and flourishing courtyards, which reveal the discreet elegance of the old capital.

Travel back in time with our local guide, when Córdoba was the most prosperous metropolis of the West during the Umayyad Caliphate more than a thousand years ago. The main witness of this golden age is the Great Mosque. The prayer room is composed of a spectacular forest of more than a thousand columns of marble, jasper and granite. This masterpiece of Islamic architecture, the result of successive extensions and adornments for more than two centuries, shows the evolution of Umayyad Cordoba art. In the heart of the prayer room rises the vertical cathedral, which combines remarkable works of Renaissance and Baroque art. Outside the sacred space, the grace of Cordoba lives in the Jewish quarter (the old Jewish quarter), which protects the labyrinthine medieval structure, elegant mansions with courtyards in flower and a synagogue of the 14th century.

After the visit, our driver will take you back to Seville.
