Cordoba Walking Tour with Optional Arabian Baths Experience

- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
Continue to Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, a site also called the Palace of the Christian Kings, built in the 14th century by Alfonso XI. Walk through the inside of the palace and see remarkable Arabian baths, Roman mosaics and a sarcophagus of marble from the 3rd century.
Originally there were four towers at the corners of the Alcazar, three of which can be seen still today: Torre de Los Leones, the oldest, which forms the entrance to the palace, the octagonal Torre del Homenaje and the round Torre del Rio. The fourth tower, Torre de la Vela, was destroyed in the 19th century.
As you wander through the Jewish Quarter, dating to the time of the Romans, look out for important monuments dedicated to the most important sons of Cordoba: Roman philosopher Seneca, Arabian philosopher Averroes and Jewish philosopher Maimonides.
Here you can also see Cordoba’s Bullfighting Museum and one of the few synagogues existing today in Spain, Cordoba Synagogue. Pose for photos in front of the landmark, and then continue to El Zoco, a market where traditional artisans paint and flamenco dancers practice. Your tour then finishes near the Mezquita.
Upgrade: Baños Árabes de Cordoba
If you want to indulge in some relaxation time after your tour, upgrade to include an entrance ticket to Baños Árabes de Cordoba. Make your own way to the Arabian baths, and then spend up to 2.5 hours inside at leisure, making use of the thermal plunge pools and atmospheric steam room. Complimentary mint tea is available once inside.

Fantastic guide. We were the only 2 English speaking in the group so we had a guide to ourselves for the first two and a half hours. It is the only way to fully appreciate the mosque and the alcazar.
