I left my heart in Cordoba

After living in Madrid for a year and only seeing a few reknowned cities here and there, we felt it was time to explore some more of Andalus.

On our way to the coast we stopped in Cordoba.  We arrived  by night and it was beautiful.  i can’t really express the feeling of this place but by night it was beautiful and by day there was so much to explore.  I have found that the people of Andalucia are some of Spain’s friendliest and positive, happy people.  I always feel welcome and not so much an outsider when in Andalucia.  One thing I must admit is that the accent or way of speaking can add a new level of diffuculty to a newb like me, but most people here are patient with you or will shake off misunderstandings with humor.  I wish I could spend more time in Andalucia.

Cordoba must see’s etc:

La Mesquita

-Los Puentes Romanos (preferably by night/sunset)

-La Torre Marmuerta (by the bridge)

Los Reales Alcazares

-Las Caballerizas Reales

-Los Banos Arabes

-Enjoy a good meal anywhere or head to Las Tendillas or La Corredera plazas.  I heard La Taberna Salinas in La Corredera (Cordoba’s Plaza Mayor) is a good place to eat.

– Explore all the winding streets and discover the beautiful patios overflowing with flowers.

Tip: If your hotel doesn’t provide parking then it may still be possible to park your car at the Aparcamientos Renfe without having to pay a daily fee.
