Full description

Explore the history of Cordoba on a guided walking tour of its main monuments. Starting from the historic heart of the city, discover the Córdoba Synagogue, Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, Judería de Cordoba, and more.

Departing from the Monument to the Lovers, visit the Synagogue, where the main door is profusely decorated with Mudejar plasterwork, and three small balconies form a trefoil archway with inscriptions from the psalms. 

Stroll through the complex network of small streets that make up the historic Jewish Quarter, enjoying the typical Andalusian flavor, and stop in decorative squares and streets to take in the sights.

Round of your tour at the Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, where the mixture of architectural styles reveals nine centuries of Cordoba history.

Go inside to see the labyrinth of beautiful columns, double arcades, and horseshoe arches. Discover how a Catholic cathedral was constructed inside the Islamic mosque, with Byzantine mosaics crafted from marble.

At the end of the trip, your guide will be happy to point you in the direction of local restaurants and taverns if you want to sample some authentic Andalusian tapas (cost not included).

We really enjoyed our tour of Cordoba! Our guide, Angel, was a local and incredibly knowledgeable about the past and present of this historical city. We did feel a bit rushed through the Jewish Quarter, but we hit all the major sites and then spent the second half of the tour exploring the Mosque-Cathedral—which one could spend days exploring. Overall, it was a wonderful tour and we learned much more than if we had tried to discover it on our own. Highly recommend!

Overall a great tour with Ana! Having a guide for the mosque provided great additional information I might have otherwise missed out on. I do wish the beginning half focused more on history than just pointing out buildings but it was still very interesting and a great tour especially for limited time in Cordoba.

A must-do for anyone visiting Cordoba! The walking tour was very informative and interesting. The visit to the mezquita was amazing, definitely worth it to have a guide discussing all the cultural and religious significance of the interior of the mosque/cathedral rather than wander around aimlessly. Esther was a knowledgable guide and spoke really great English, and volunteered to take pictures for guests. Highly recommend climbing the bell tower next door, not included in this excursion but something to do when your tour is over.
