What to see during your tour in Córdoba with a rented minibus with driver

If you want to rent a bus with driver for an excursion or trip that originates or terminates in Córdoba, we suggest including these stops in your itinerary:

The Roman Bridge of Córdoba

The most beautiful vista in Córdoba is from the Roman Bridge that crosses the Guadalquivir River and has connected both banks to the city for two thousand years. You take a very pleasant walk here, though there’s also a bike lane on the north bank and a walkway that goes under the bridge on the south bank. Admiring the statue of Archangel Raphael in the middle of the bridge is an experience in and of itself.

Medina Azahara

A must-see for everyone who visits Córdoba. This was a sumptuous palace city that the first Caliph of Córdoba, Abderramán III, ordered to be built at the feet of the Sierra Morena Mountain with the intention of projecting an image of power for the recently created independent caliphate of Córdoba. It took more than 10,000 men to build it using the best materials, precious metals, marble, and multi-colored stones. The museum of the city of Medina Azahara has won the most prestigious architecture award in the Arab world, the Aga Kan.

Castle of the Christian Kings (Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos)

This is one of the most beautiful monuments in the city, located on Caballerizas Reales Street; it was built in 1328 by Alfonso XI. You can admire the beautiful medieval Romanesque mosaics that decorate the building and take a walk through the gardens, ponds, and Mudejar fountains. These gardens are illuminated at night, and in the summer time various concerts are held here.

 Restaurant Taberna Sociedad Plateros María Auxiliadora

This tavern is located on María Auxiliadora Street in downtown Córdoba. This is a very special tavern, with an interior patio designed around an inner courtyard. It has a very pleasant atmosphere and delicious tapas (Spanish appetizers/snacks). It has a storied past and is famous for its cod dishes; for this reason it has been nicknamed “The Cod House.”

Orange Tree Patio (Patio de los Naranjos)

To enter this patio is to go back in time. Admire its fountains, irrigation canals, and cobblestones that seem to be drawn on the ground. This is an ideal place for relaxing and enjoying a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere under the shade of the orange trees.
