  • The Palacio de la Merced, former convent of the Merced Calzada, is the headquarters of the Provincial Council of Córdoba. It has one of the most beautiful facades of Cordoba thanks to that somewhat unique Baroque style. The Palacio de la Merced was built in the eighteenth century, where the main cloister and its baroque black marble fountain stand out, as well as the imperial marble staircase. Admission is free.

  • Located in Plaza de Colon, we can admire this beautiful and great palace, which is closed to the public, but only admire the façade and its construction is worthwhile.

  • Lovers of art and architecture, go for a stroll and decipher the facades and details. A beautiful place not to be missed under any circumstances.

  • A pretty building with a beautiful courtyard. There was some very interesting art work that on display in the courtyard and in the halls on the second floor.. It seemed to be an operating government adminstrative building. There was no cost to enter and view. Overall worth a quick visit.
  • Beautiful example of Spanish architecture. Cheers from Australia.
  • What a waste of time! I made the long walk here from alcazar (30m walk) only to leave feeling massively shortchanged. Yes the building looks grand from the outside. But step inside and all you see is a courtyard - like those you find anywhere else in Spain - and some art paintings on the wall. That's it. The other areas are all blocked off for tourists as they are government offices. Please don't go out of your way to come here. Stick to the alcazar and the grand mosque and the palace de reina. Utter disappointment.
  • Love it. Mainly because I lived there for several years when a was a child and a teenager.
  • This is a beautiful baroque building and quite big. I didn't understand if it's open for visitors so I went in anyway. The patio is really beautiful too, so go in there...
