More information

Legend has it that the Caliph fell in love with Azahara, a young woman from Granada. For her he built the most beautiful city, which bore his name, full of rich marbles, colorful tiles and exotic plants brought from distant countries. But nothing seemed to please the young woman, since she longed for the snow of the Sierra Nevada. The Caliph promised him snow in Córdoba, for which he planted hundreds of almond trees that in spring, when they bloomed, looked like a blanket of snow on the slopes of Sierra Morena.
Azahara never cried anymore and we have been left with the remains of one of the most beautiful cities ever built.

Visit one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe at the hands of an expert who will tell you the history of Azahara and many more to learn everything about this historical place. After the walk through the Medina, you will also visit the Interpretation Center, a museum that houses a magnificent collection of pieces taken from the complex.

In the end, to combat fatigue after the route, we invite you to a drink and a traditional tapas in a nearby place.
