We are in front of one of the reference cities of Andalusia and Spain for tourists. Perhaps it is because of its beautiful architecture, the Andalusian air, the joy of its people or its rich gastronomy; but what is clear is that Cordoba wins everyone’s heart who visit it.
In addition to its famous Mosque-Cathedral or its Fiesta de los Patios, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, if there is one thing worth mentioning in Cordoba, it is its sunsets. Watching the sun go down in one of the many viewpoints that the city offers will make you live a unique experience.
Do not forget to hire one of our Cordoba Tours to not miss anything of this city, such as the Guided Tour of Monumental Córdoba, where you can visit the main monuments, or the Free Walking Tour Córdoba, where you only have to worry about enjoying the visit.
This bridge was built in the 1st century B.C. over the Guadalquivir River and is one of the obligatory stops on a visit to Cordoba. It is responsible for connecting the neighborhood of Campo de la Verdad with the impressive Cathedral Quarter. From here you can be in a few minutes at the famous Mosque-Cathedral, where you can take our Guided Tour Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba.
When the sun sets over the Roman Bridge, a spectacular view is created with the reflection of the colorful sky on the river. You can admire it from the surroundings of the bridge or over it, because both sunsets will leave you open-mouthed.
A few kilometers from the city of Cordoba, high in Sierra Morena, we find these small houses that offer the best views of the city. Popularly the complex is known as the Desert of Nuestra Señora de Belén and served as a place of retreat for those monks who chose to give their lives to God.
Upon entering we find a path full of cypress trees, which lead us on one side to the old chapel, and on the other side to the impressive viewpoint. We recommend you to go at sunset, to see how the sun hides before the majestic city of Cordoba and leaves painted in the sky that give us a magical view.
Another of the visits that no one wants to miss in Cordoba. It is a monumental complex in which all those who have passed through the city have left their mark, from the Romans to the present day. It was the residence of the Christian Monarchs for 8 years, and later served both as the headquarters of the Inquisition and as a prison. To discover it, do not forget to take our Guided Tour of the Alcazar of Córdoba.
Highlights include its gardens on the banks of the Guadalquivir, as well as the impressive wall that surrounds it, but if you are looking for stunning views at sunset you have to go up to the Torre de los Leones, from where you will get a beautiful panoramic view of the city, with the Mosque in the foreground and the Roman Bridge and the river in the background. If you are left wanting more history at the end of your visit, do not hesitate to take our Guided Tour Medina Azahara, which will show you one of the most beautiful monuments of the Spanish geography.
This corner has become over the years one of the icons of the city, and no wonder, because the views offered by this alley are worthy of a postcard. On the roofs rises the Campanario Tower, located in the historic center, and on the sides we are surrounded by a myriad of pots with colorful flowers that create a magnificent picture.
Although the street is small, if you make time to look up at sunset, your eyes will capture one of the most beautiful images ever. If you find this street impressive, you can’t miss our Guided Tour Patios de Córdoba, where you will be surrounded by picturesque Andalusian patios full of flowers.
