Posada del Potro, Cordoba

4.3
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 stands out for its conservation as a medieval construction. Today transformed into a center of exaltation of flamenco. Indispensable for lovers of this art.

  • Found it by chance, our guide didn't mention it. Worth a visit and children will like it, as well
  • Beautiful building very well maintained. Interesting flamenco history and live performance on weekends.
  • Plaza del Potro is a very interesting place. It gained publicity thanks to the author Don Kichot Miguel Cervantes, who was here at the Inn under the foals to create a part of the adventures of an erroneous knight from La Mancha. The inn itself has changed little since its inception in the 14th century.

  • Good place to learn flamenco, whether you are passionate about its art, or if the passion that moves you is music and you want to know more about one of its genres. Curious to know the relationship of some flamenco clubs with other musical genres. Very didactic.

  • Just because of the surroundings and the well-preserved and unique building (former inn), it is worth spending a few minutes. I advise your visit.
