Cordoba in July, often called the 'frying pan of Spain' can be a magical place despite the heat. As in Madrid the months of July and August are so hot that many locals go to the coast for holidays leaving their cities much emptier than...More

Was looking forward to Cordoba, and initially impressed with the small streets and impressive Roman bridge. By lunchtime though we couldn't find anywhere for lunch, even in the 'tourist' streets. This was at 1230. We even went into two restaurants and were asked politely to...More

Narrow cobbled streets can be roamed for hours with little traffic permitted in the historical centre. All the buildings are old so it's like stepping back in time. Getting lost is half the fun. Packed with interest.

There are inevitably a lot of touristy shops and restaurants here, but they're not too in your face and its a lovely atmospheric stroll through the narrow streets

Get out of your car, find the local tourist office, get a free map and go for a 2-3h walk around town. Everything is close together, cathedrals, plazas, bridges. We'll worth stopping by.

You can spend a lot longer than you intended in this delightful old city centre and bump into the same people several times. The narrow winding streets lead you to one charming sight after another but much of the time there is little in the...More

Pretty cool place, lots of food places dotted throughout it and little leather shops and souvenir shops. Atmosphere is relaxed and it looks rustic, with shades of it's original state.

From the Roman bridge to the new town, the wonderful narrow alleys of the gorgeous city take you from wonder to wonder. No rush. In the heat, lots of cool places for a much-needed drink. Good architecture and so many different ages of history represented.
