When we were parking our car on the other side of the river of the Mezquita an old man came by and started asking us for money to watch our car. We refused and when we got back the car was keyed all along the passenger side. I don't know if he did it (bad karma- don't know for sure) but hell it sure looks like it.
Cordoba, like the rest of inland Andalusia may get really hot in the Summer months, even above 40 ºC in some days. Luckily this a dry heat, so it is easy to bear with, but if you are not used to this kind of climate, do as the locals during the summer months: do the sightseeing during early in the monrning, rest during the midday hours and enjoy the colourful Andalusians nights as long as your body can resist it.
Cordoba is infamous for its criminality and carthefts. We knew that we had to watch out, but unfortunately thieves broke into our car (in the citycentre, middel of the day !!!) and stole our......old and smelly sneakers. Unbelievable !
How ironic....our car was a Seat Cordoba.....
I found the bars around the cathedral really expensive. If you want a bottle of water, an ice cream, etc... wait a little and buy in in other street.
