1. Best neighborhoods to stay for visiting Cordoba
Among the best areas to stay in while visiting Cordoba, here is our TOP:
- La Juderia: the area where the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is located
- San Basilo: quiet but central area
- San Pedro: central district, but less touristy
Other neighborhoods of Cordoba can also be considered, but these are the three that are the interesting ones to visit Cordoba (see the TOP things to do in Cordoba). The visit to Cordoba, in general, takes 1, 2 or 3 days. Therefore, it is recommended to choose these three neighborhoods, which are the most central.
To avoid. The district that is located on the other side of the Guadalquivir river, that is to say Miraflores, is not the most interesting district to stay in Cordoba. Admittedly, Miraflores is a much less touristy district. You can go there for a walk or just walk on the bridge that crosses Guadalquivir, but that’s the maximum.
