Step back in time to discover the contrast between the Roman Period and the Caliphate period in the famous Andalusian city with this Cordoba Day trip from Seville.
Cordoba Day Trip from Seville
Early in the morning, we'll pick you up in Seville and head towards Cordoba. Just after leaving Seville we'll stop to visit the landmarks in the village of Carmona.
After nearly an hour's drive, we'll arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage Site and cross the famous bridge over the Guadalquivir River, which has even featured in the filming for Game of Thrones.
On the other side of this bridge, there is a Roman arch that leads us to the Mosque-Cathedral. Inside we'll admire its golden mosaics and the careful ornamentation of its endless row of arches and the mihrab, the sacred place that indicates the direction of Mecca. You'll be amazed by its contrasts and discover why this place is considered the most important monument of Western Islamic art.
Then, we'll go into the labyrinthine style streets of the Jewish quarter and let ourselves be enamoured by the charm of its white houses filled with colourful flowers.
You'll have free time to have lunch and try the local cuisine (not included).
In the afternoon, you can continue discovering the less touristic spots around Cordoba, such as the traditional Plaza de la Corredera, Las Tendillas and the Cristo de los Faroles. During the tour, you'll also have a close look at the picturesque Cordoba courtyards.
After a day visiting the most important sites around Cordoba, we'll return to Seville by bus.
