Cordoba On a Budget
Cordoba The Mosque-Church of Cordoba, Spain
Cordoba is a Spanish city located in the southern province of Andalusia. With a culture embedded in Islamic heritage, the city is home to many architectural gems, the most significant being La Mezquita. Andalucía's major river, the Guadalquivir, flows just below the Mezquita, and the riverfront streets are bustling with lively restaurants and bars. Other popular centers of activity include the Jewish Quarter, Muslim Quarter, and the Old City.

The city also plays host to many cultural events throughout the year, some of which include flamenco festivals, music concerts, and ballet performances. If you don't find yourself in Cordoba during one of these popular festivals, there is still no shortage of museums or sights to visit.
The Mezquita remains the architectural, cultural, and historical treasure of Cordoba. It stands as an emblem of the Islamic culture that flourished when the city was the capital of Islamic Spain. Dating back to the medieval era, the former mosque houses a massive bell tower, Moorish style archways, decorative windows, fountains, Byzantine mosaics, and a beautiful patio lined with orange trees. While the architectural design and decor sings of an Islamic past, the Mezquita has operated with a Catholic cathedral at its center since the 1600s. Surrounding the Mezquita is the Old City. A place of tangled medieval streets, the walkways are lined with other historical attractions like the Roman Bridge, the City Wall, the fortress called Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, a beautifully preserved synagogue, as well as many charming squares and the Museum of Al-Andalus Life.

Just outside of the Old City there exist a few other popular attractions like the archaeological ruins of Madinat Al-Zahra, sunset allure of the Plaza del Cristo de los Faroles, and the Viana Palace which houses a museum that features furniture, tapestries, porcelain, tiles, paintings, leatherwork, muskets, an impressive library, and extensive gardens with patios.

In a web of narrow streets surrounding the Mezquita, Old City sits just uphill from the muddy Guadalquivir River. Containing the vast majority of Cordoba's attractions, the historic center has a wealth of monuments that pay homage to Roman, Arabic, and Christian times. Northwest of the Mezquita sits the Jewish Quarter, or old Judería, a neighborhood which dates back to the late Middle Ages, while the Muslim quarter sits to the Northeast. The narrow streets branch out through each neighborhood, some bustling with tourist activity while others remain charming and peaceful. The center of the modern city lies further north, around the Plaza de las Tendillas, where you will find a lively vibe amongst excellent bars and restaurants. The riverfront streets, along the Guadalquivir also have a good selection for dining and nightlife.

Sight-seeing and shopping are give-ins no matter where you travel, but depending on the time of year, Cordoba has a range of other seasonal activities to engage in. May, for example, is considered the best time to visit the city. Cruces de Mayo is celebrated during the first week of the month with music, drinks, and other festivities held in Cordoba's public squares. The Cata de Vino-Montilla Moriles is a great way to sample local wine and enjoy music under a large tent in the city center, while the Festival de Patios has families open their private homes to visitors from all around the world to admire their central patios. The longest festival, however, is called the Feria de Córdoba, which takes place over two weekends. Activities include Flamenco dancing, horse riding, and rides for children during the day with parties all around the city by night.

Other activities available throughout the year include a visit to the Hammam – Arabic baths, renting an electric car to see the city, or taking a Segway tour of Cordoba.
Food and Dining
Year-round in Cordoba the scents and colors of orange blossoms fill the air. They are used in much of the city's cuisine with products like Iberian cured meats, cheese, fish, and excellent stews. Top any of these off with a glass of Cordoba's wine and you've got yourself an exemplary meal of the region. The old quarter and districts like San Andres, San Lorenzo, and Santa Marina are full of traditional taverns where you can sample the night away with a variety of tapas. These samplers range in local tastes and are often served free with your drink. Some typical tapas include pickled anchovies or the flamenquín which is a fried serrano ham roll. A few other dishes of the city range from salmorejo (a type of cold tomato soup with bread, garlic and olive oil) to bull's tail or pastel cordobes (a puff pastry filled with candied pumpkin). Due to the city's strong Arab influence, there are also many tea shops in Cordoba.
