    What to Expect
    Get on the air-conditioned bus that will wait for you on the way out of your hotel on the Costa del Sol in the morning to start the day trip to Córdoba, located about two hours away. This fascinating Andalusian city, capital of the province of Córdoba, is a captivating combination of Christian, Muslim and Jewish history, culture and architecture, which you will appreciate just entering the city centre.

    Follow your guide, enjoy the architectural wonders of Cordoba, as well as its cobbled streets surrounded by balconies with flowers, old wineries, bustling bars and craft shops. Venture in the history of the city, which begins in the 10th century, when Cordoba was the most populous city in the world, or that is what experts say. In the following centuries, the inhabitants of the city, mostly Muslims, turned the city into the intellectual center of Europe, known for its tolerance of the Christian and Jewish minorities. Today, Cordoba is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and its old town remains the second largest in Europe.

    Visit the Alcazar of the Christian kings, the medieval palace-fortress of the Christian kings, full of beautiful gardens, fountains and surprising architecture. Then visit the most important monument of Cordoba, the mosque (also known as the Mezquita-Cathedral of Cordoba), which represents the many religious changes suffered by the city in the last centuries. Originally a Catholic Church, it became an Islamic mosque in the Middle Ages and then became a church after the reconquest. With its impressive architecture, the mosque is considered one of the most outstanding monuments in the Arab world. Note The combination of large Roman columns, Baroque and Renaissance frescoes, and Moorish tiles and arches while touring the interior.

     Then go to the old Jewish quarter (the Jewry), whose streets lengthen as capillaries and reach hidden patios full of locals enjoying some tapas after the NAP.

    Before leaving Córdoba, stroll through the picturesque Calleja de las Flores, one of the most popular streets in the city. Turn to see the tower of the mosque above the corridor, one of the most emblematic views of Cordoba. Then, get on the bus to take the trip back to the Costa del Sol for approximately 2 hours.
