    At Seville in my opinion, Miss is a pleasure, the impressive mosque and many places for eating, drinking an iced coffee...

    We feel the Muslim influence. A maze of small streets, hyper. It was quick to get lost, but isn't it delightful, stroll the sandstone of the streets, patios... It's clean, very touristic, beautiful, but under 40 degrees, it's hard.

Where to stay in Cordoba

To experience the heart of Cordoba's old-world charm, the famous Jewish Quarter, or Judería, offers an array of family-owned pensions and boutique hotels with close proximity to the city's main attractions and lively tapas culture. A number of newer hotels surround the local train and bus stations offering more spacious accomodations, although removed from the city's historical district. Above all, be sure to book a hotel equipped with air conditioning as Cordoba is famous for its scorching tempuratures during the late spring and summer.
