As you might can see then most of my posts are about me traveling around. It is because they are the most exiting time of my week and I just love traveling. I don’t do much else interesting in my week. Quite usual everyday life.
Okay, so.. Córdoba. It is city that thought it would be bigger. It is not an usual beauty city as I am used to see. There are some specific gorgeous sites but in general it is not so wonderful. What makes the city amazing is those specific sites that are worth to visit!
So after over 2 hours of impossible sleep on a bus we parted from the organization and went to explore on our own. No way we are gonna stick to 3 buses of people. 8 hours of free time. We started off from Puento Romano to the cathedral. After discovering that visit to cathedral is 8 euros we decided to see other places first and maybe come back.
So we were wondering around Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos. With it’s mighty castle and beautiful garden it amazed me. And made me wonder how beautiful it could be in spring time?!
The long walk made all of us hungry and we got to Plaza de la Corredera for lunch. I decided to try out the Cordoba’s traditional dish – salmorejo. It is purée of tomato and bread and as a garnish I had Spanish serrano ham on it. I am not a soup lover but it was actually quite good. Interesting taste and really filling.
We made a big tour around the city but couldn’t find so many interesting thing to so we had a lot of time still to go. So after buying some souvenirs we still went to Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba. Totally worth the 8 euros!! It was just breathtaking. It took an hour to see everything and I am not sure if I still saw everything. It had so many sections and altars and all those details and paintings and the big hall of arches. It is even hard to describe how it looks like. It is definitely a must-visit if you have a chance!
The climate was really nice. I haven’t walked a while with just a t-shirt and there it was possible on the last day of October. So late October vacation is a good option in Andalucia.
