   In 1570, King Philip II, who was a great lover of horses, set out on a scheme to create a pure thoroughbred Spanish horse. He ordered the Royal Stables to be built, where he bred the Spanish horse or Andalusian horse, which was of Arab origin. The main stable room itself, with its vaulted ceiling supported by sandstone pillars is divided into smaller separate areas, known as boxes

You don't need to be a horse lover to enjoy this show. Their website shows their tickets as being 'sold out' months in advance, but there were plenty available at the door at show time. The horses are so beautiful and well trained, and the show tried to not only showcase the traditional training techniques but included a couple of... More

After all the hype I'd read, I was looking forward to something impressive. Maybe I had my expectations inflated unrealistically. My daughter is a rider, and we have taken in a number of impressive performances, like Cavalia in the U.S. The horses in this show did some nice movements. They were well-trained. It just wasn't impressive. AND the so-called "flamenco"... More

We came upon the Caballerizas Reales de Cordoba quite by accident. It was a local festival Sunday which was ruined by heavy rain.To escape the rain we came across these stables which were being used as part of the festival by local traders. However, there was a ticket booth and a vidio showing the horses. With nothing to lose we... More

Excellent show lasting about a hour combining flamenco and horses - it was really well done. It was crowded which reflects its popularity - be sure to have your tickets before you join the queue or you coul be disappointed. There are no seat numbers and you sit on benches at either end of the indoor arena which was fine.... More

Stopped by the practice session for FREE in the afternoon while the riders went through their practice paces for the evening show. We were intrigued so purchased the tix for that night. So glad that we did as it was wonderful to watch the incredible footwork of the stallions and the riders' nuanced directions guiding the horses. Watching them perform... More

This was a spectacular show! Extremely well trained horses performed ballet like routines including some flamenco moves with a lasy. One horse performed with no contact betweeen it and the controller on the ground. It lasts about 75 mins.

This is a free attraction and if you're in the area, it's well worth a visit, especially if you like horses. There is also a performance in evening but we didn't do that. Some very beautiful well-groomed horses.
