South of Spain: Cordoba 2 days Itinerary

Another must see destination while exploring South of Spain is Cordoba. Córdoba, also called Cordova in English, is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba. An Iberian and Roman city in ancient times, during the postclassical period, it became the capital of an Islamic caliphate.

Personally, when it comes to my own experience in Cordoba, I always pick the very local/boutique styles hotel. Location was more important to me. If you feel that you are seeking the same my recommendation would be:

Hospederia del Atalia (You can find it on Booking.com)

One of the greatest things about the hotel is the neighborhood it’s in. It’s located in the Jewish Quarter which is where you want to walk around and take lotsa pictures.

Otherwise, other recommendations would be:

Hotel Hospes Palacio del Bailio (on Booking.com or Splendia.com)

Hotel Las Casas de La Juderia (on Booking.com or Splendia.com)

There is also B&B and apartment options, but I haven’t looked into any so I won’t be much help in such options.

What to do in Cordoba?

1. Hop on Hop off Bus Tour! Provides sightseeing tour, such as Mezquita (the cathedral-mosque of Cordoba), the Roman Temple of Cordoba, Calahorra Tower and much more.
