This is away from most of the Cordoba sights but is definitely worth the walk. However who thought it was a good idea to put a wacking great lamppost in front of it making a real challenge for photographs? It's hard enough with the passing traffic to get a clear view!

We were in area one evening and got to attend a mass. We're not able to see remainder of the building. However, the church is stunningly beautiful, well worth our visit. The walls were pure white and the altar very large and of bright gold.

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of architecture. Unfortunately when we were there, we were told that we could only walk through the inner courtyard. The rest of the Palacio was closed to the public.

I consider the Palacio de la Merced as the most beautiful Baroque building in Cordoba. The chapel is still being restored after a madman set fire to it in the past. It was a former convent, the Convent of La Merced, where Columbus stayed. There is a beautiful patio, staircase, and church. Most of it is a Provincial Government building... More
