Getting from Cordoba to Toledo

by KokeAC

I am trying to plan out our trip to Spain for the end of May. As I start to finalize our trip details I have run into a snag. We plan on going south and staying a night in Cordoba and want to travel from Cordoba to Toledo for our last night before flying out of Madrid. I cannot find any direct train routes or trains that appear to travel from Cordoba to Toledo. I would think that there has to be a way to do it without going all the way back to Madrid. Any suggestions?

I take it you were on the www.renfe.es site for the trains. I looked up some bus routes but couldn't find a direct route between Cordoba and Toledo. If you don't want to go back to Madrid, you could do: Toledo-Sevilla-Corboba by train.

You don't have to go back to Madrid. There's a Highway between Cordoba and Toledo.
I'll mail to your VTadress with a road map of Spain. You may use zoom tool to enlarge it. It will be a *.jpg file.

Of course there is a road hehe!!!! But I think the Forum question writer was meaning bus and train routes... I take it the they won't be travelling by car though of course renting one is an option.

Do you know anything about the buses... I had a look but couldn't find any direct routes?

Re: Getting from Cordoba to Toledo

by RAINBOWWINGS

Ive just rung the bus company and No there are no buses to Toledo! I have driven by car from Cordoba to Toledo...took a couple of hours, and its a very straight road thru. Might be the best option. You could get a train from Cordoba to Ciudad Real but you would then have to change to a bus up to Toledo..if there is one!.Too much hassle for a short journey.
As suggested you could go to Madrid and then back down to Toledo...its a very short trip, and propbably the quickest.

I think the best option is to return to ATOCHE station in Madrid and switch to the AVANT fast train to Toledo. this train only takes 30 minutes. I think it is important to book because if you are for example coming vack on certain trains they are used by workers in Toledo living in Madrid.
At least if you return to Madrid from Cordoba on the train you are using the correct rail terminus.

Travel Tips for Córdoba

Plaza las Tendillas

by Martin_S.

Plaza las Tendillas is a large open square in the old city of Cordova, not too far from the hostel where we stayed. We found the statue of Gonzalo de Cordova there and YES, I did have to look up the name to learn who this was. I got the following from the The Columbia Encyclopedia.....
Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba , 1453-1515, Spanish general, called the Great Captain. He fought in the civil wars preceding and following the accession of Isabella I and in the conquest of Granada. He commanded the army aiding Naples against Charles VIII of France. After expeditions against the rebellious Moriscos of Granada and the Turks, he returned to Italy as an ally of Louis XII of France, who had joined with Ferdinand II of Aragón to partition Naples. When Naples had been conquered, he expelled (1502-4) the French and served as governor until 1507. He greatly improved the Spanish infantry by specializing the use of weapons.

The Alcázar of the Christians Kings

It is a building of military character that was built following gothic style by order of King Alfons XI. Here the Catholic Kings resided approximately 8 years, during the period of the Spanish Reconquest. It was here were they received Columbus prior to his voyage to the Americas. Its elegant gardens and its contents are magnificent and priceless, with Roman mosaics and sarcophaguses of the 2nd and 3rd centuries. It also offers an excellent view to the rover and the Roman Bridge, that crosses the Guadalquivir River. As part of the complex, it has several towers with lodgings that are covered with pointed arches, such as the Tower of the Homage or the Lions’ Tower facing the garden of the Martyred Saints. It also maintains the baths, of the caliph tradition, located under the Mosaics’ Hall, which nowadays is used to celebrate weddings.

Packing List

by Krystynn

DO plan your wardrobe in such a way that you'll have no problem mixing and matching your outfits and it should bring you from day to night. Actually, (if you ask me) you really DON'T NEED to pack too many clothings because dresses/ clothes are pretty INEXPENSIVE here in Spain! Yes, you heard me correctly . Go there with a half-filled luggage and you WON'T be disappointed. If you choose to go in October, better still. It's SALE time in Spain! Ole! DON'T forget to transfer your precious Clarifying toners and astringent, foaming cleanser, Advanced Night Repair/ Vibrant night creams et al into small plastic containers - to save luggage space. I ALWAYS, ALWAYS bring along at least 2 camaras with me... just in case one breaks down. My friends used to laugh at me.... until their one and only camera broke down. Then when they had to RELY SOLELY on me and my amateurish photographic skills, they somehow stopped laughing. Yes, immediately. Serve them right! :-)) DON'T forget to bring along your much-treasured ATM card to withdraw cash. Yes, no need to rush to the money-changers to change all your currencies into Spanish Pesetas before your trip.

And DON'T use your Visa or Mastercard to withdraw cash. This is considered a CASH ADVANCE and you'd be slapped with a HEFTY fee whereas if you were to use YOUR own ATM card, you will NOT be charged for any fees. In fact, you WILL benefit and enjoy from the low interbank exchange rates. Trust me (I used to work for an American bank).

Just ensure that you adhere to the following steps:

(1) Flip to the back of your local ATM card, do you see the logos 'Cirrus', 'Plus', 'The Exchange', 'Star' etc on it?

(2) If the answer is 'yes', then you have absolutely nothing to worry about!

(3) Why? Because you can withdraw cash from any ATM machines in U.S.A., no matter how obscure the town you're at is.

(4) If you use this method, you'd also save alot from the interbank exchange rates. Money changers will charge you much, much more compared to a bank.

I've been using this method countless of times before and so far, no ATM machines in this world have failed me. Yet. Yes, even at the remotest village in Africa or China! Have a great trip!

There is not an airport in Cordoba, but fast links to Madrid and Seville are assured thanks to the fast speed train called AVE.
Simply walk, enjoy the windling streets of the old Jewish quarter and the fasade of the mosque.

Very disappointing

by NedHopkins about Restaurante Almudaina

The restaurant has two dining rooms, a small one for smokers, a large one for more virtuous people. The menu is the same in both rooms.

The ambience was better in the non-smoking section; the service, in the smoking room, was satisfactory.

The food wasn't. My Rabo de Toro a la Cordobesa (bull's tale, Cordoba style) was tasteless. My guess is that it was prepared in a pressure cooker.

All other courses, for both my wife and me, were just edible. None. Though we'd go back to Cordoba just to feast at Restaurante El Churrasco, we wouldn't go back to Almudaina even if they paid us.
