Calle Rio


The main street of Priego de Cordoba is called Calle Rio. The word "rio" means river and below this street runs the river. This street is known for its elegant houses, many with Baroque facades. Many of the houses have beautiful Mudejar designs and wonderful wrought iron grills on the windows. The doors of the houses are very elegant because they have brass knockers, round brass eyeholes, and brass kick plates at the bottom of the doors, with elegant designs. The Carrera de las Monjas also has these beautiful buildings.
