        Once a thriving capital of the Moorish culture and center of government, Córdoba today makes a great stop on the high-speed train on your way to Seville. On this informative Walking Tour, you'll explore its Great Mosque, or Mezquita--considered one of the most fascinating religious buildings in Europe--and the winding streets of the surrounding old Jewish quarter. 
        Cordoba has a long and illustrious past. Its history goes all the way back to Roman times, when "Corduba" was the regional capital. It later became the Islamic capital of Al-Andalus after the Moors invaded in 711, and by the time Abd ar-Rahman III proclaimed himself Caliph in 929, breaking with Baghdad, it was the largest city in Western Europe. During the Middle Ages, Córdoba was a bastion for scholars and intellectuals as well as home of an important Jewish center. Today, the incredible Mezquita, or Great Mosque, and the fascinating Jewish quarter all offer a glimpse into Córdoba's varied past. Your guide will unravel the history for you and even if it is just for a few hours, the AVE fast speed train makes it very convenient from anywhere in Spain, and you will be so glad you made the stop. If you would like to spend extra time on your own following our guided tour, that is very easy as the trains on to Seville are frequent and our local guides can make recommendations for lunch.
