7 things to do in Cordoba

1.La plaza de la corredera

This place is amazing just to stand in the middle and take a look of the view. Even if you go at day or at night, whether it is full of people or almost empty, it always creates a different way and feeling.  There are a lot of restaurants around a bit expensive, if you want something cheaper, you can find amazing places around the city with better gastronomic offers.

2. Roman Bridge (Puente Romano)

The Roman bridge of Córdoba is a bridge in the Historic centre of Córdoba, Andalusia, southern Spain, originally built in the early 1st century BC across the Guadalquivir river, though it has been reconstructed at various times since.For me this is one of the most amazing mental postcards that you will keep while visiting Cordoba.

3. Mezquita Catedral de Cordoba

The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is the most important monument of all the Western Islamic world, and one of the most amazing in the world. The evolution of the “Omeya” style in Spain is resumed in the history of the Mosque of Cordoba, as well as other styles such as the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque of the Christian architecture. It’s important to check the time you want to visit and go 30 minutes in advance, because normally they are sold out.

4. Alcazar de los reyes cristinanos

The Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos (Spanish for “Castle of the Christian Monarchs”), also known as the Alcázar of Córdoba, is a medieval Alcázar located in the historic centre of Córdoba, Spain, next to the Guadalquivir River and near the Grand Mosque. This is one of the most incredible places you will visit in Cordoba, the beauty of the big gardens, the architecture of the buildings takes you to amazing places only to look all the beautiful view, take a note if you go before 8:45 AM you have free entrance.

5. Flower Street in Cordoba

Calleja de las Flores, or the Little Street of Flowers, is a street that no Cordoba visitor will want to miss, making it one of the top attractions in this Spanish city. More of an alleyway than a street actually, but in General Cordoba’s streets are so colourful and full of charming, that you will find more than 1 street where you will fall in love.

6. I Heart Salmorejo

This is one of the most delicious dishes you will taste in your life!! (honestly). Salmorejo is a purée consisting of tomato and bread, originating from Cordoba in Andalucia, south Spain. It is made from tomatoes, bread, oil, garlic.The purée is served cold and may be garnished with diced Spanish serrano ham and diced hard-boiled eggs. You will try “differents” Salmorejos,depending on the restaurant or bar you choose, but beleive me ALWAYS is amazing!

7. Plaza de las Tendillas

The best you can do is to stay 2- 3 days in Cordoba, because the environment, the people and the city feeling is amazing everyday. One of the places that I really recommend to enjoy a nice coffee is: La Plaza de las Tendillas, one of the Central Squares of the city. Around you can find stores, restaurants and a considerable number of streets that you can explore.
