Full description
Explore the history of Cordoba on an approximately 2-hour walking tour of its main monuments. Available in Spanish, English and French, the guided tour departs from the Monument to the Lovers in the historic heart of the city.

Visit the Synagogue, where the main door is profusely decorated with Mudejar plasterwork, and 3 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.

End your tour at the Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, where the mixture of architectural styles reveal 9 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 tour, at approximately 14:30, your guide will be happy to point you in the direction of local restaurants and taverns should you wish to sample some authentic Andalusian tapas.
