Returning to Cordoba is like travelling back through time to a bygone era. The traveller is immersed in a unique cultural ambience—the very cradle of modern science and letters. Here, just a few steps from the Mosque of Cordoba, awaits the Hotel Balcón del Córdoba, a seventeenth century house with three patios and a torreón—with truly breathtaking views of the city. Passing through its doors, one leaves behind the maze of ancient roads of the old quarter to enter a calm, cool world of peacefulness and contemplation. The seductive murmur of water flowing through fountains—tastefully adorned with Roman columns and artefacts—permeates patios, terraces and rooms. Classical, Islamic and Spanish styles, tinged with Flemish and European influences, are masterfully intermingled in this exemplary version of a traditional Andalusian home. Gazing inward through latticework onto three patios and opening outward onto spectacular terraces, each of the
ten rooms has been imbued with a unique character, and each whispers the mythological roots of Mediterranean culture. The elegance and freshness of fabrics and tapestries in shades of white, gray and earth tones are accompanied by appointments that feature functionality, quality materials, and original and exclusive objets d’art. At the Hotel Balcón de Córdoba, all elements clearly conspire to enhance the elegance and serenity of their surroundings, which proudly open out over the city through a number of terraces. From the loftiest of these, one may glimpse the privileges and secrets jealously guarded by the Cathedral’s bell tower, while she, in turn, majestically reflects the evocative words of Antonio Gala, "...and yet again, one understands why, in this land, both heart and memory have always been intertwined."
