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.

  • Saved by the city who made a centre of flamenco, the Posada del Potro made his function until a few decades ago but is already mentioned in Don Quixote "because it is a fine example of how were the homes five hundred years ago with the structures around a patio. It is not the first attraction in town but if you curious for patios worth going there.

  • In the House apparently settled Miquel Cervantes. Today there is a Museum of Flamenco. Visit to find out more about him, try to dance in different styles, with the help of motion simulators. Happen in August also free flamenco at a good level.

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.
