Córdoba is without doubt one of the most beautiful towns in Andalucia. Take a walking tour of the attractive, whitewashed streets of this medieval Moorish city, the heart of which is the old Jewish quarter where you will visit an ancient synagogue. View the magnificent Mezquita, built between the 8th and 10th centuries and considered one of the most extraordinary buildings in Europe. In the 1520s, a Christian Baroque nave was constructed in the heart of the mosque, which is so large it engulfs this resplendent but anomalous addition. Then visit the medieval Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, located between the Guadalquivir River and Grand Mosque. Explore the famous fortress once home to Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon. Time permitting, continue to one of the oldest defence towers in the city, the Calahorra. The fortress was originally constructed to defend the city from attack, and was restored in 1369 on the orders of Henry II of Trastamara.
