Description

The free Cordoba tour

Discover the Mysterious Cordoba.

Discover the stories and legends of one of the oldest cities in Europe. Meet with a local guide and learn about historical places where events took place that will leave you amazed. We will start in the heart of Cordoba, just behind the Mosque-Cathedral with stories that will leave you speechless. The temple hides investigations, little known tombs, cemeteries in the courtyard, events full of tension and is, in general, an open book of the history of Cordoba.

Our route continues along the Calle del Pañuelo, one of the narrowest streets in Europe, whose significance goes beyond its narrowness. Afterwards we will enter the intramural area and you will discover one of the darkest streets of the city, the famous Calle Cabezas; its name comes from a heartbreaking story where heads were hung, you can still see the pikes where they were placed after their execution, this story will leave you speechless....

And no less so will be the bloody legend of the Cross of the Rastro and its relationship with the Compás de San Francisco, where some of the most violent events of the 15th century took place, stigmatizing the Jewish community forever. In addition, in this night Free Tour we will go into the Axerquia of Cordoba, starting with the Plaza del Potro, famous for being a meeting point and resting place for merchants in medieval times. There is still talk of the legends of the Posada del Potro, a place that was marked by strange murders, dead people hidden underground and romantic stories full of tragedy.

From here we will go to the Plaza de la Corredera, where we can still hear the cries of the so-called Autos de fe, a practice that took place in the centre of the square and consisted of hanging and burning all those condemned for heresy in Christian times.

We will then travel back in history to the Roman civilisation to see, from one of the main arteries of Cordoba, Claudio Marcelo, the impressive Roman Temple, a witness to the passing of time and the great road that once led to Rome. The streets of the Axerquia will also allow us to talk about mysteries, witchcraft and urban legends, to finish in front of the Christ of the Lanterns, a place full of meditation and with a story that, apparently, continues to happen night after night.
