DAY 7: CÓRDOBA
Day 7 starts at the Añadío, with another great breakfast. Then, we have to leave for our route’s last city: Córdoba. After settling in a Rusticae hotel, a specialized guide in art and history will be waiting for you (at noon), to take you on a private tour through the historic city centre. It will last around 2 hours, visiting the Roman Bridge over the Guadalquivir River, the Puerta del Puente and the Saint Rafael Triumphs. The Triumph of Saint Rafael on Bridge’s Gate is one of the many existing triumphs in Córdoba, dedicated to Saint Rafael archangel, the town’s guardian angel. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. It is located in Plaza del Triunfo, Cathedral district, very close to the ancient Mosque. The tour will continue through the alleys of the medieval quarter, and the Fernandina churches (a set of religious constructions built by King Ferdinand III the Saint, after the conquest of Cordoba in 1236). In the afternoon, it is time for one of the most expected visits of this trip, also with a private guide: the magnificent Mosque and the Jewish quarter. The Mosque is undoubtedly Andalusia’s most important monument, together with the Alhambra, as well as the most emblematic of the Umayyad Hispanic art. It is considered Humanity Cultural Heritage, being one of the most popular monuments in Spain. This visit lasts about 2 and a half hours.
