Córdoba Day Trip and Medieval Castle

Córdoba Day Trip

Another one of We Love Spain´s great Two in One Day Trips! Visit the famous city of Córdoba and the Medieval Castle Almodovar (both filming locations for the famous "Game of Thrones).

First, We Love Spain takes you on a Medieval trip back in time to the historic city of Córdoba! One of the greatest centers of art and philosophy, as well as both the capital of Rome´s Baetica and of Al-Andalus under Moorish rule, Córdoba became a center of advanced learning and sciences, medicine, philosophy, and poetry in the Middle Ages. Believed by many to even be the inspiration for the European Renaissance, we will walk you through this famous city from pre-historic to modern times.

Next for those who are interested, you will discover the beautiful Castle Almodovar, Arabic fortress near Cordoba, built in the year 760 AD by the Omeyas, and named "Al-Mudawar" meaning round or safe.
In November 2016, the 7th season of the popular series Games of Thrones was filmed here, representing Highgarden, seat of House Tyrell.

WE WILL VISIT


Córdoba 
is the capital city of the Spanish province of Córdoba.  The city is over 2000 years old, founded by the Romans in 169BC.  Under them, Córdoba became a very important city with temples, ampitheaters and more.  In the 8th century it was conquered by Mulim armies coming from the north when the Omeya dynasty made it the capital of Al-Andalus.  Córdoba´s golden age was during the middle ages when it became a center of learing, medicine, philosophy and religious tolerance.

 

Medieval Castle Almodóvar is Arabic fortress near Cordoba, built in the year 760 AD by the Omeyas, and named “Al-Mudawar” meaning round or safe. In year 1240 was incorporated into the kingdom of Castilla by Fernando III.

In November 2016, the 7th season of the popular series Games of Thrones was filmed here, representing Highgarden, seat of House Tyrell.
