Cordoba City Tour from Seville

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart your Seville hotel by air-conditioned vehicle in the morning, and set off eastward through Andalusia’s countryside toward Cordoba.
    On route, listen to the live onboard commentary about this splendid city, Europe’s largest during the 10th century with around 500,000 inhabitants, and located on the River Guadalquivir. Founded by the Romans, Cordoba was a major Moorish center between the 8th and 13th centuries, leaving it with many of the Islamic buildings that epitomize its UNESCO-listed center.
    On arrival in the city, set off to explore the historical center as your guide recounts its tangled, multicultural history. Admire the Roman Bridge and Calahorra Tower, the 12th-century tower-gate, and delve into the atmospheric streets of the former Jewish Quarter, the biggest in Europe.
    Hear how Cordoba’s Jewish community helped drive its prosperity during the Middle Ages, and take a look at the medieval Synagogue. Admire other landmarks including the restored, 9th-century Albolaifa water wheel on the Guadalquivir, and then visit the city's showpiece: Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita).
    This celebrated example of medieval Islamic architecture dates to the 10th century, and incorporates a cathedral, built during Christian rule in the 16th century. Choose to take an audio- or self-guided tour of the mosque interior, marveling at its red-and-white archways, designed to mimic a palm grove, and its courtyard, bell tower, horseshoe-shaped mihrab (prayer niche) and more.
    Then, enjoy time to explore and relax in the city independently, perhaps having lunch (own expense), shopping for souvenirs, or visiting further sights.
    Finally, return to Seville, ending your trip with a hotel drop-off.

    Our guide Peter was great. A German tour guide with over 18 years leaving in Seville was very knowledgeable of the culture. Great experience.

    Our tour with Federico was amazing! Cordoba is definitely worth seeing and our guide helped make it the best possible experience. We got to see Carmona, which we would not have even known about if it weren't for the tour. We went all throughout Cordoba...More

    This is a good tour overall. We were picked up from our hotel and proceeded first to Carmona to see the Roman ruins there first, on the way to Cordoba. Carmona was interesting but not really as impressive as Cordoba. I could understand if many...More
