A 12th century house it has been renovated to showcase the Hispano-Islamic houses of Andalucía and does so very well. The intimate courtyards and rooms exhibit coins, books and a model of the first paper-making machines to arrive in the the West, with a description of how the process worked. Muslim art, decorative tiles and arches combined with the scent of lemons and incense-sticks and soothing Islamic music make this a serene experience. The cellar is not to be missed either. Past the utensils and wooden buckets is a Visigoth mosaic. This is a small but perfectly formed museum and was my personal highlight of my trip to Córdoba.

Friendly small restaurant specializing in traditional Cordoban and Argentinian dishes.
In the old quarter within walking distance of the Mesquita but excellent food, and good prices. Welcoming, proud of their food and very friendly. Tables outside too.
No other city in the world hosts such an original event as The White Night of Flamenco, which takes place in Cordoba for one whole night in June. It is a night where streets, squares, taverns and street corners ring to the sound of chords, footsteps and voices.
Flamenco in its purest form rubs shoulders with more avant-garde productions, public art, cuisine, poetry and drama. The White Night of Flamenco takes place in Cordoba, the capital city of encounters and of tolerance, a city so steeped in Flamenco that even its town clock chimes out the hours with the strumming of a guitar in the Plaza de las Tendillas. A city of one race and of many, of mixtures and of roots.
Escape the heat of the day (and the hoards) and head to the Hammam de Al Andalus Banos Arabes.
Relax while enjoying traditional Hammam massage or refresh in the clear blue pools while glimpsing the sky through the star shaped roof lights.
Top it all off with Arabic pastries and tea. The ultimate afternoon of relaxation.
