We moved on to Córdoba one of the most alluring cities in Spain and renowned for its bullfighting traditions and architecture. As you walk around this great city you will begin to get a perception of the Moorish and Roman occupation of a bygone era. There is the Mosque, Roman Bridge and countless other sites to visit and photograph.
Our hotel was situated close to the entrance of the old quarter and within walking distance of the main monuments, and other places of interest.
The first place we visited was the Puente Romano (Roman Bridge), an impressive structure that stands prominent by day and mysterious at night when illuminated.
Next to the bridge is the Mezquita de Córdoba (mosque), one of the most visited sites in all of Spain. Entry times are limited so be sure to buy your ticket online or early in the morning.
You will be bowled over by the vast expanse of the place, with its almighty columns and arches.
Where to eat in Córdoba
Córdoba has many gastronomic food markets that are widely popular in Spain.
The “Mercado La Victoria” is another popular place you should visit. They have an enormous selection of different foods including some mouth-watering Indian, Japanese, Mexican and of course Spanish cuisine. It’s located inside a park and tends to get quite busy.
We tried the “Mercado de la Duquesa” which has an indoor patio area surrounded by food kiosks. We ordered a delicious slice of tortilla with spicy chorizo; one of our favourites. At the Moroccan kiosk we ordered a chicken and lemon tagine and a skewer.
