The Parador de Córdoba awaits you in the legendary city of the caliphs, atop the ruins of the summer palace of Abd-ar-Rahman I. The cool, elegant building, with magnificent views of the city and swimming pool, is surrounded by a garden known as Los Naranjos (The Orange Trees), which boasts the oldest palm trees in Europe. Inside you will discover bright, spacious rooms decorated with the simplicity and exquisite taste of the Cordoba-style salmorejo (cold tomato soup), white almond gazpacho and grilled meat with parsley sauce you can enjoy in our restaurant.
Córdoba, a World Heritage City, is a treasure chest of fascinating beauty. Its mosque is the most important Islamic monument in the West and one of the most amazing in the world. Córdoba's emblematic courtyards offer an incomparable explosion of color. Their flowerpots and well-kept flowers will appeal to all of your senses. They are in their fullest glory during the Festival de los Patios (Courtyard Festival), when the entire city becomes a celebration and the streets dance to the rhythms of flamenco, scented with jasmine and orange blossom.
And don't miss a visit to the fabulous and mysterious city which Abd-ar-Rahman III had built at the foot of the Sierra Morena mountains just eight kilometers from Córdoba: the lovely Medina Azahara, with its legendary name and history.
At the Parador de Córdoba, you will enjoy magnificent views of the city; a peaceful, refreshing and relaxed stay; and magical dinners at the terrace restaurant on warm nights. Come discover the city's spectacular streets, sights, whitewashed houses filled with flowers and the joy exuded at every turn.
