Every building is interesting, some with an old large Roman wooden door in bright colours, or tiny doors or ironwork gates, or colourful flowers. We just wandered through the streets, sort of lost...but not really. Loved it.

Be sure you bring your map and stop by the tourist office. It's an unassuming town, so you need to put on your adventure hat to find the really cool stuff.

Typical old town for a Sanish city, nice places to spend couple of hours and just enjoy life walking around and sitting in cafes

The area is not so huge but you will get lost for several times and this is not so bad. You can see many beautiful small alleys and find nice places to visit.

Right from getting dropped off by the riverside, walking along looking up and see the city above us, the old water wheels by the old Roman bridge with the tower at the far end, this place is just so atmospheric.

We called at the Information office to get a street map and to use their toilet facilities then walked up into the town.

Firstly we visited the Alcazar, the Mezquita, and then had lunch in Plaza Benavente where we were entertained by flamenco music coming from the open windows of a nearby building where people were practising the flamenco accompanied by a brilliant guitarist – a real treat.

After lunch we walked along the narrow cobbled streets to discover the pretty Calleja de las Flores (Little Street of Flowers) just as its name implies, Posada del Porto (the medieval square made famous by Cervantes in Don Quixote) and many more. It is just wonderful to wander around and feel the history. It is quite compact so you can’t really get lost.

We only had a day here so it was now time to go back down to the pick-up point but we still had time to walk along the Roman bridge with its Torre de la Calahorra at the end and once more look back at the city of Córdoba, hoping that one day we may return.
