The Free Tour of Cordoba

The Free Tour of Cordoba lasts 2 hours and thanks to this route you will learn about the origins of this wonderful city, which civilisations inhabited it and with which of them Cordoba reached its greatest cultural splendour.

Cordoba Free Tour itinerary

The Free tour of Cordoba starts at the main door of the Town Hall, from where we will discover one of the main churches of Ferdinand after the reconquest, the Church of San Pablo. From this point we will continue our visit to the Roman Temple, which stands out for having been part of the Provincial Forum, next to which the Roman circus was located.

We will follow one of our guided tours in Cordoba to the Plaza Tendillas, where the Cordobeses congregate to celebrate the most important events of the city. We will move through history until we reach the Muslim legacy, making our first stop at the colourful Calleja de las Flores, famous for its route of pots of geraniums.

During the Free Tour of Cordoba we will also talk about our most important monumental building: the Mosque-Cathedral. In this place, the words of our guides will make you travel back in time through the stages that make this building a World Heritage Site. Next, we will approach the University of Philosophy and Letters of the city or formerly known as the Hospital del Cardenal Salazar, an imposing baroque building dating from the 18th century.

We will delve into the labyrinthine Jewish Quarter. Here we will be transported back in time to Maimonides Square, where the culture of Jewish civilisation is embodied. In this same space, our route continues to Tiberias Square, where a statue was erected in honour of the sage Maimonides. Finally, we will finish our walk through the neighbourhood in the Calleja del Salmorejo Cordobés, where you will discover the history of the traditional Cordoban gastronomy.

We will continue to learn about the history of the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, the place where our most famous explorer, Christopher Columbus, requested the necessary resources from the Catholic Monarchs to embark on the discovery of America. Moreover, the Catholic Monarchs settled in this fortress during the last stage of the Spanish reconquest, and from here they directed the campaign against the Kingdom of Granada.

To finish this complete Free Tour of Cordoba, we will finish in front of the Puerta del Puente, which is located next to the Triumph of San Rafael, the custodian of the city of Cordoba.
