Posada del Potro, Cordoba

(3.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • They suggested us to pay a visit to this district of the city and it was a success. If it is true that the entire city is filled with tourists, this area is less crowded and offers some locals for drinks best in the city as well as restaurants and local alternative. The streets around the square are very pleasant to stroll

  • Not so much by what is or what he teaches (now Exhibition Hall) but by the story of the innkeeper who hides in it, is u site that it is worth just for being in the place in which it occurs. I invite you to that want you to pass by there and discover it... I asked the man that works as a Concierge in the building for the room where it occurred and told me he could tell which room was when it was all empty and had to close the doors... and I say no more!
