Posada del Potro, Cordoba

4.4
Transport yourself to the pages of Cervantes’ "Don Quixote" at this 15th-century barnyard inn. The famous Spanish novel mentions Posada del Potro, describing it as "a den of thieves." It is rumored that Cervantes stayed at this inn when he visited Córdoba. Explore the simple whitewashed rooms, stroll through the patio, and imagine what this inn would have looked like in Cervantes’ time. Some of the building has now been dedicated to a museum of flamenco dance and music. To find out how to plan a trip to Cordoba, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • It is one of the most picturesque and literary of Córdoba. Located from the 14th century in the square of the same name, was one of the cordoban scenarios preferred by Cervantes, both in his life and in his work. This old corral of comedies is a clear example of the Cordoba folk architecture. He is currently the Centre of Flamenco Fosforito.
