These recognitions have been awarded to the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, the historic center, the popular Fiesta de los Patios and Medina Azahara. However, in this Complete Walking Tour of Córdoba, we will also discover many other corners of a city that lived its most glorious times under the Muslims and during the Middle Ages.
We will begin the guided tour at the most traditional point of the historic center of Córdoba: the Mosque-Cathedral, one of the most beautiful buildings in what was one of the most cultured and opulent cities in Europe during the Caliphate of Córdoba. After visiting the interior and discovering the history of the Mosque, we will walk through the Calleja de la Hoguera, where the Islamic University "Averroes" is located.
We will continue the tour enjoying the Jewish Quarter of Córdoba, with its winding streets that Sephardic heritage has left us. A historic center that for its beauty, history and tourist attraction was listed years ago as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
In the Jewish neighborhood we will find the Cardenal Salazar Square, where the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters is located. This building was formerly the Provincial Hospital of Agudos, with courtyards, cloister and the chapel of San Bartolomé, in Mudejar style.
Strolling around we will arrive at the Statue of Maimonides, made by Amadeo Ruiz Olmos in honor of Mosén Ben Maimon, a Jewish philosopher of Cordovan origin who is considered one of the greatest thinkers of Judaism and the Torah. Next to the Plaza de Maimónides is the Municipal Souk of Córdoba, also known as the Craft Market. In the building there are several workshops of Cordovan artisans.
Nearby is the Córdoba Synagogue, the second monument that we will visit inside during this Complete Tour of Córdoba. This temple of the Jews in Córdoba was built between 1314 and 1315 following the Mudejar style. After the expulsion of the Jews, it was used as a hospital, hermitage and even a nursery school. Inside we can see: the patio, the female area and the main room.
Very close to the Synagogue is the Calleja de la Luna, formerly a dead end until the Arch of the Moon was opened in the city to facilitate access to the Jewish quarter.
The last stop is the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, a fortress-palace that during its history was also the Seat of the Inquisition and a prison.
Inside we can see the different rooms distributed around the patios. The most notable dependencies of this ancient fortress are:
- The access gallery, with a pagan sarcophagus from the 3rd century.
- The Hall of Mosaics. Below are the Arabic-style bathrooms.
- A Mudejar style patio, decorated with marble and several canals and pools that are a breeze of fresh air if ours takes place in the hottest months of the year.
This Complete Tour of Córdoba (with tickets) is the best way to get to know the main tourist attractions of Córdoba, accompanied by a local guide who knows perfectly the history of the Caliphal city.
