How to Find the Best Cordoba Hotels with Hotels.com

Unfairly overshadowed by its Andalucian neighbours Seville and Granada, Cordoba is a magnificent city of the south. Its character was formed in the three centuries when it was the capital of the western Moorish empire. The Mezquita of Cordoba is still one of Spain's most spectacular edifices but much of the attraction of the city comes from its warren of atmospheric streets in the old Moorish and Jewish quarters and the tranquility that settles on the city in the hot afternoon. Cordoba will fascinate anyone interested in Spain's colourful history and architecture. Hotels.com has partnered with a great range of Cordoba hotels to offer visitors the best value rooms to suit any budget or preferences. Booking Cordoba accommodation in advance at Hotels.com provides more time to explore the mysteries of the Mezquita.

What's Cordoba Like?

The Mezquita is the obvious tourist highlight in Cordoba, revealing more delights with every visit. Construction began in the 8th century using old Roman and Visigothic pillars and alternating brick and stone to create the distinctive striped pattern in the arches. The elegance and unity of the architecture is slightly undermined by the miniature cathedral that was imposed after the Christian Reconquista in the 16th century. Other attractions in Cordoba include the Roman bridge and the Torre de la Calahorra tower housing a museum with exhibitions about the Mezquita. One of the most enjoyable pursuits in Cordoba is peering through gates at the ornate and beautiful Moorish patios, open to the public in a May festival. The shade of the old town is particularly welcome in summer, when the region is among the hottest in Spain. Cordoba hotels offer the ideal base for exploring the city in depth.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Cordoba

Cordoba is not as tourist-orientated as much of Andalucia so don't expect English to be spoken everywhere. Trying a few Spanish phrases might be necessary in restaurants or the railway station. Flamenco performances in Cordoba are more likely to be authentic, with shows starting late and the ticket price usually including a drink. Cordoba has a few culinary specialities worth trying. Salmorejo is a local variation on Andalucian gazpacho, thickened with bread and served with chopped egg. Bull's tail, a slow-cooked stew, was traditionally made from the bulls killed in the ring. Cinnamon and almond pastries are a sweet and fragrant legacy of Moorish occupation. Hotels.com provides all the information needed to make an informed choice of Cordoba hotels. Certified guest reviews are featured alongside photos, sample room layouts and maps to help you identify your ideal Cordoba accommodation.
