This private walking tour will start from Barrio de la Catedral where you will get into the Jewish Quarter, the best-known part of Cordoba’s historic centre and also one of Europe’s largest World Heritage sites. Here we’ll visit the Arabic market (Zoco) and the bronze statue of Maimonides.

Stop next at the famous synagogue, which dates back to the 14th century, before heading to the Great Mosque of Cordoba. This mosque is one of the most famous monuments in the Western Islamic culture and the most important landmark in the city. Originally built around the year 600 AD as a pagan temple, it was first converted into a Christian church before being refashioned into a mosque. With 856 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite, this former mosque-turned-cathedral is regarded as one of the most accomplished monuments of Renaissance and Moorish architecture.

You will also explore the area around the Roman bridge, an arched long bridge dating back to the 1st century, before ending the tour.
