    VT Review Summary

    by

    Hotel Gracia de Cordoba is a 2 star hotel located on Rodriguez Marin Street in the old town area. Attractions in the vicinity include Palacio Museo de Viana, Archaeological Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts. Guest who stayed said the suites on the top floor were “huge”. A reviewer mentioned this hotel was nice and appeared to have been recently renovated. A guest said that free parking is available on the street on Sunday, and so recommends reading the street signs. There were few negative comments such as it can be difficult to find without a map. Amenities include air conditioning and shower with “good pressure”.

    really nice place

    by

    We drove all over Cordoba not knowking where the main tourist atractions are (no map off course, as we don't bother with maps). We came across this hotel as soon as the streets started to get narrower and there were more "no enrty" street signs (the sign for old town, for all of you who don't use map). The hotel was located in two adjacent buildings with two elevators. It looked just renovated. My sister got a single room on 2 floor, and we got a huge suite on the top floor. We paid about 60 Euro for all 3 of us.

    Since it was Sunday we had FREE parking on the street. But be carefull, read the signs or ask locals . Hotel staff tried to sell us overnight parking in the afiliated parking garage (30 Euro for 24 hours).

    Unique Quality: Our room was giant, with huge bathroom and narrow balcony. It was clean and had strong AC and great shower/tub with plenty of hot water and good presure.

    The hotel is located about 10 min walk from main atraction - Mezquita-Catedral, but it is a nice walk.
    The staff was also very friendly and helpful, lowering the price and showing us....all the available rooms.

    I would definitely stay in this place again!

by hmfn

Hi
On 7th of Dec.we will visit Cordoba on the way to Granada.As we will be with a tour we won't have much time for ourselves but I want to see the inside of Cordoba Mosque.Do I have to get ticket before my visit?If yes, is it possible on internet?Thanks.

by hmoitta

no, no need to get the ticket before

Re: need to buy ticket for Cathedral?

by Navajorug

If you go between 9 and 10 in the morning, there are no tour groups,so there are no huge multilingual crowds, I've been told that by a reliable person. I think it is also free during that time but I won't swear on that.

Thanks to you all for your help.
Best wishes

Re: need to buy ticket for Cathedral?

by puerto_lover

I just read the above. Obviously too late but I thought I should just mention that on a Sunday morning it is not possible to visit the Mezquita because the Cathedral will hold the services. I think the Mezquita part of this wonderful structure is open to the public in the afternoon.

Travel Tips for Córdoba

Patios

by Polly74

At any time, behind any door, you can find the typical Cordobesian patio of great historical importance, where the water murmurs, the flowers seem to speckle the walls and the grates of the windows with blood, and the Crosses of May come alive between the notes sprung from the strings of a guitar or the depth of cante, that mixes the fiber of life in a laughter centered in the mixture of the cultures.

The Cordobesian patios are a reminiscence of the climate conditions of this city; they are an essential part of the housing.
Whitewash walls, fountains, columns, and flowers, they are simply comforting in such warm climate.
The houses that surround the patios acquire a communal life, sharing their chickens, galleries and backyard, laundry facilities, and of course, the patio, which through their careful upkeep led to the development of the traditional patio festivities

LA MEZQUITA - TORRE DEL ALMINAR

by LoriPori

A Minaret once stood where the Belfry TORRE DEL ALMINAR is now. The original Minaret was built in 957 and was eventually enveloped in this Barocque Belltower. It really is a beautiful tower and not surprisingly very much photographed. Along with the orange trees, it makes for a wonderful picture. I know I couldn't get enough of it and took pics at several different angles.

Guadalquibir

by solopes

The Guadalquivir, more than a river, is a reference in Spanish culture, history and poetry. Its peaceful passage by the historical Cordoba, reminds the Moorish times, well preserved in most artifacts used to retain or extract the water.

To understand all my feelings you need to:

1 - Learn Portuguese
2 - Find a record of João Villaret
3 - Listen to him asking:

"...
Antonio Torres Heredia.
Camborio de dura crin,
moreno de verde luna,
voz de clavel varonil:
¿Quién te ha quitado la vida
cerca del Guadalquivir?
..."
From "La muerte de Antonito el Camborio", by Federico Garcia Lorca.

(IF you did it... good! You may keep on listening to the magic Villaret. If you didn't, at least, try to read Lorca... in any language!)

The Best Tortilla de Espanola!

by Hopkid about Bar Santos

This little tapas bar outside the northwest corner of the Mezquita grounds is very unassuming. But once inside you might notice framed newspaper clippings that praise the homemade tortilla de espanola made here. In Spain, a tortilla is not the same as what one thinks of when one mentions tortilla. In Spain, a tortilla is more of a potato and egg pie, kind of like a quiche depending on what ingredients are included. However it is a bit heavier than a quiche. Bar Santos' version is more potato-y but it's a kind of stiff creamy texture. And I'm not sure what is in it but it is very tasty indeed. I believe one order was 2,50 euro and one is enough to fill you up along with a plate of chorizo and a nice tinto y limon.

The chap working the bar was very nice as were the locals who came in, all ordering a slice of the tortilla casera! Tortilla de espanola

Local ambience, good beer

by hojasdehierba about Bar Correo

We were taken to this bar by a local friend, who assured us that this bar is said to serve the best beer in Cordoba. Well, perhaps it is true, but you have to stay in the middle of the street while drinking it! A pedestrian street, of course. Many local people in bar with central location.
Un amigo cordobes nos llevo a este bar y nos aseguraba que era el que se decia que sirve mejor cerveza de toda la ciudad. Vale, quizas es verdad, pero tienes que estar en medio de la calle bebiendola. Una calle peatonal, claro. Mucha gente de Cordoba en un bar situado en pleno centro Well, there was hardly anything but beer... so...
Bueno, apenas habia nada mas que cerveza, asi que...
