Córdoba Day Trip from Madrid

First thing in the morning, you’ll embark on a full-day trip to Córdoba, catching the high-speed train from Madrid-Puerta de Atocha train station.

Upon arrival in the ancient capital of the Islamic Emirate, you’ll have time to explore the city at your own pace. Declared a World Heritage Site, the historic center is mesmerizing. We recommend you visit the old Jewish Quarter (judería) and cross the Roman Bridge that traverses the Guadalquivir river.

After a short walk, you will meet your English-speaking guide just a little before 10 am in front of the north side of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. This religious edifice is one of the most-visited of Spain. The guide will tell you about its history, its famous arches and how it was founded by Abd al-Rahman I, and how it was transformed into a Roman Catholic church when the Spaniards reconquered the area. To conclude the tour, you’ll follow your guide to a tavern and have a beer and a typical tapa. A great way to discover the region’s traditional cuisine!

After the guided tour, you’ll have time to keep on discovering the old town at your own leisure until it is time to return to the railway station, where your train will depart at 8:29 pm. You’ll arrive in Madrid at approximately 10:15 pm.
