Discover Córdoba… Enjoy the Moorish, Roman & Jewish heritage of Córdoba, once the richest  in Europe. On our private guided tour, discover the best of this UNESCO-listed old town including the Roman bridge, once crossed by Julius Caesar, the Mezquita. Now a Cathedral, originally the Mezquita was among the largest medieval mosque and still inludes over 800 hand cut columns, some from Roman times. Nearby your guide will help you navigate charming maze-like tiny winding streets of the old town of Córdoba. Master artist Julio Romero Torres is from Córdoba and there is a fine museum here full of his dramatic regional paintings often of beautiful women. Maybe that is how he is said to have influenced Picasso, who was born 3 hours south on the Mediterranean coast in Málaga. They met through Picasso’s father apparently.

Highlights include the incredible vistas from the hilltops of the Albaizin (reminiscent of Morroco’s souks) the old Moorish quarter of Granada. But the biggest attraction is the Alhambra, a Moorish castle, palace, and gardens.
