Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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 visit Posada Del Potro on your trip to Cordoba, use our Cordoba tourist route planner.

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.
