Parador de Córdoba
The Parador stands atop a hill next to the city of Cordoba. It’s situated on the ruins of the site where 'Abd al-Rahman I once built his summer palace. An elegant building, its garden is home to the oldest palm trees in Europe, and it boasts a swimming pool, a children's play area, a paddle tennis court, a tennis court, charging point for electric cars, and the best views of the city. It also has a convention centre with the necessary facilities to ensure successful corporate events.
Cordoba preserves centuries of history in its streets. The former capital of Islamic Spain and today a World Heritage City, it’s full of monuments such as the Mosque-Cathedral, the most important of these structures and one of the most awe-inspiring constructions in the world; the Alcazar of the Catholic Monarchs; and the Roman bridge. Its courtyards, streets and squares, decorated with colourful flowers, gates, walls and museums are also noteworthy. Just eight kilometres from its old quarter, is the mysterious city commissioned by Abd-al Rahman III at the foot of the Sierra Morena, the beautiful Medina Azahara that bears a legendary name and history.
You’ll enjoy a peaceful stay at the Parador de Córdoba, with the best views of the city and magical dinners on the terrace. There’s no shortage of salmorejo in our restaurant, or white almond gazpacho, or a charcoal-grilled steak with salsa verde, traditional dishes of Córdoba that you’ll want to repeat.

Cordoba, the capital of Islamic Spain, has an extraordinary monument and cultural heritage. The city has four World Heritage sites: the Mosque-Cathedral, by extension the third largest mosque in the world; the old quarter that surrounds it, the Fiesta de los Patios, and Medina Azahara.
The best way to enjoy Cordoba is to explore it on foot. Roam its streets en route to courtyards and squares decorated with brightly coloured flowers, head to the Alcázar that was home to the Catholic Monarchs until the conquest of Granada, and explore the Jewish quarter to discover the only synagogue in Andalusia. Learn more about the history of Cordoba in museums such as the Casa Andalusi and the Archaeological Museum. Children will love the Ciudad de los Niños, next to the Zoo, and a visit to the botanical garden, where they can go canoeing on the Guadalquivir River.
Just 8 km away is the majestic palace city of Medina Azahara, built by Abd-al Rahman III and magnificently preserved today. Nearby, 20 km away, stands the impressive castle of Almodóvar with its towers and battlements. Montoro, a mini-Toledo in Andalusia is just over 40 km from Cordoba.
If you’re a golf lover, we recommend one of our best golf courses, Los Villares Golf Club, 8 km from the Parador. There’s also a practice area where you can improve your swing and tee-off. Additionally, our guests are entitled to the free use of the Gym Sierra, just few metres away from the Parador.
