Cordoba: 5 days - 4 nights: 196.49€ /student
Situated in the centre of Andalusia, at the foothills of the Morena mountains on the banks on the river Guadalquivir stands Cordoba. This great Caliphate city was the capital of Al-Andalus (Moorish Spain) in the 10th century and a city of three faiths (Christian, Jewish, and Muslim). Its most iconic monument is the mosque, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most important examples of Muslim art and culture in Spain.
Wandering through the town truly is a pleasure with the key sights including; the Jewish Quarter with its synagogue, the Museum of Fine Art and the Julio Romero de Torres Museum.Furthermore, Cordoba continues in its tradition of artisanal craftsmanship, specialising in silver work (jewellery and filigree) and embossed leather, therefore, an afternoon’s shopping is highly recommended.
May is the best month for festivals, kicking off with the “Fiesta de las Cruces” where the city is decorated with floral crosses, followed by the “Festival de los Patios”, and finishing during the final week with the Festival of Our Lady of Health. The local specialities include the “salmorejo” (a version of the famous Andalusian gazpacho soup), braized Oxtail, “perol” (meat and rice casserole)and “flamenquin” (stuffed pork steak, fried in breadcrumbs). Its most famous wines come from the vineyards of Montilla-Moriles.
