How long do I need in Cordoba?

by ran137

I will be taking a day trip from Seville and I was just wondering how many hours I will need to see most things. I want to get an idea of the train timings so I could book the tickets.

Thanks in adavance

A.) Don't bother booking the tickets from Sevilla to Cordoba. Get them the morning or the day before. There are at least three different price points and all at different times of the days. The lowest price ticket (last year was less than 10 euro one way) is only a few minutes longer than the two faster trains. I don't think you can buy these in advance. The other two trains (I forget what they are called, but they are on the Renfe site) both take the same time, use the same cars, but one is much more than the other. B.) as to the time it takes to see things, I did the same thing, a day trip from Sevilla and got a late start and did not get to Cordoba until around 10:30. There is quite a bit to see. I should have gotten there earlier. Karl

Thanks for the tip. We plan on getting there early to take advantage of the free hours for the mosque. How did you book your tickets for the way back?

You are allowed entry intot he Cathedral / Mezquita at 08.30 when the main doors are opened for free providing you are independent traveller (i.e. no group !) and respect this place of worship. It is best to arrive when the doors open because the official; opening time for 'paid admissions' is at 10.00 and nearer that time the officials inside the fantastic building tend to cordon off areas to get prepared for the usual visitors. You can see a lot though in an hour. Also make sure you look around the outside.
A few metres away is the bridge (Puente Romano) which no longer resembles a Roman Bridge as it has been 'modernised' recently.
There are other places to visit in this old area of Cordoba including the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos but best to review the official Cordoba web site for opening hours and any other attractions going on in the City on the day of your visit etc:

Don't forget that in Spain many museums apart from the well known major ones like the Cathedral / Mezquita in Cordoba are actually closed on Mondays.

If you are aiming to get to the Mezquita in time for 08.30 from Seville then the 07.15 - 08.01 AVE train is good and because this is a train destined for Madrid and its easier to get to Seville Santa Justa at that time with ticket in hand you could buy in advance and print off the ticket. You will be allocated seats on all AVE and AVANT trains. Walking down from Cordoba station to the Cathedral area is no more than 30 minutes and all down hill !

Travel Tips for Córdoba

Streets of Cordoba

by Polly74

The narrow streets, the winding alleys and small out-of-the-way plazas, where the white limestone shines, where you can still hear the murmur of the water fountains and where you are surrounded burgundy geraniums and elongated plantains, in a warm environment, that tease your five senses.

The artistic quarter of Córdoba, reachable from the Via Augusta (Augustus Way)and the Roman Bridge, surrounded partly by remains of the city walls and the ochre waters of the Guadalquivir River, constitutes its own world. The Street of the Flowers as well as any spot within the Juderia (the old Jewish quarter) offer typical imagery of this city. Between the whitewash, radiant bronze and sculptures as visible: the Maimonides of Plaza of Tiberiades, or the Seneca from the Almodovar Gate; or the Synagogue, at the junction of several walls. Along the city walls, which are besieged by gardens and ponds, the white sculpture of Averroes, another great Corbesian philosopher, stands guard.

Cordoba a World Heritage city

by Carmela71

A few cities in Spain have the merit to be called like this.

This make me very proud of my country, but cities as Toledo, Salamanca, Avila, CAceres, etc... really deserve!

I guess the mosque was not the only reason for this nomination, also the Jewish neighbour, the andalusian patios, the bullfighting..

Feria de Cordoba

by hquittner

The Feria is held the last week in May. Large cuestas (square open tents,striped red or green, with wooden floor areas for dancng, decorated with paper flowers and lanterns) are installed in the park-like are at the west of town. Some of the venues are open, but most are private or social clubs (like the floats in the "selective" parades in our new Orleans Mardi Gras). 20 years ago when I took this picture tourists were few, we were timid neophyte world travellers, and declined their offers to join in! The young middle-aged men in correct attire with low broad-brimmed hats and leather overpants arrived on horses with consorts in flamenco skirts seated behind on the horses' rumps; the less athletic arrived by carriage. The women showed off their flamenco skills on the dance-floor and as the wine was consumed were joined by some of the men. (A hired band worked nearby) . The partying lasts till dawn. The downside of this affair was that the park-avenue blocked our access to the bridge at the West, we had no map, our hotel was on the South bank , and we were dangerously low on gasoline.

Apart from the sights that...

by DanielF

Apart from the sights that I've mentioned in the other categories, you shouldn't miss the Plaza de la Corredera, a typical market square, the Plaza de las Tendillas, the center of the modern city, the Palace of Viana (an old aristocratic residence, today a museum) and the Roman ruins.

And, of course, visit also some of the province of Córdoba. Near the capital you can visit the ruins of the old palace of the Muslim caliphas (Medina Zahara). There is not much left of it, but archaelogists are unveiling more and more secrets. To the south of the Province there are a lot of typical Andalusian villages, famous for their Barroque churches: Priego, Montilla, Lucena, Cabra... In the Guadalquivir Valley, visit the impressive Montoro, and to the North, the good preserved natural parks of Hornachuelos and the Northern Sierras.

Try the Swordfish!!!!

by Ulla58214 about El Caballo Rojo

Seafood at least for me. Although my friend had the tenderloin and both were delicious. This restaurant is really close to the mosque. In fact it is right behind it if you are walking from the river. It is a little hidden but most locals know where it is and I am sure will be happy to point you in the direction. In fact the locals recommended it. A lovely restaurant for fine dining. The only 2 I tried the Swordfish (just mouthwatering) and the tenderloin. Both were incredible.
