  • Interesting - free entry for EU nationals. Fascinating history and objects. Cannot compare to the Mezquita, but a pleasant way to spend and hour.
  • Very good museum. Go there and scheduled 3 hours minimum if you like to read. Free entry !
  • A small museum where you can stay cool. Underneath you can see the remains of a Roman theatre. You can see everything in 30 minutes but since it's free for EU citizens, it's still worth visiting if you have a bit of time.
  • Very interesting if you want to understand the history of Andalucia. The fact that it's a small museum actually improves the experience because it let's you enough time to read the exclamations which are rightly dosed.
  • Very nice museum with great presentations like 3d visualization of the roman theater/ruins and coins observable via magnifying glass.

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.
