Cordoba, one of the 8 provinces of Andalusia, one of the 17 autonomous regions of Spain, is a small but history-rich city with a population of nearly 350,000. The city is the 5th largest in the region and was founded by the Romans in 169 BC, which means it has a history of over two thousand years. It is worth noting that in the 10th century, Cordoba was one of the largest cities in the world, with a population of one million.

Although it doesn’t seem very impressive as Seville, Granada, and Málaga, Cordoba is an important city in terms of cultural and monumental heritage where you can find distinct traces of Roman, Muslim, Jewish, and Christian influences. Despite its small size, Cordoba has been a World Heritage record holder since 2018. When you search for Cordoba on the internet, the first thing you’ll see is its white streets covered with colorful flowerpots. It is the first city on the UNESCO World Heritage List with four historical sites. Also along with the rest of Spain, it has been awarded the titles of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity for Flamenco (2010) and the Mediterranean Diet (2013). As we’ll explain below, the period when the streets are covered with colorful flower pots is the first half of May when the famous ‘Feria de Los Patios’ (Courtyard Festival) is held. Apart from certain tourist streets and courtyards in some neighborhoods, you cannot see all of the streets covered with colorful flowers all year.

When to Visit Cordoba?

During the winter months, Cordoba’s climate is quite mild with an average high of 16-17ºC and an average low of 5ºC. Especially in recent years, December, January, and February have been drier than in previous years.

The Best Time to Travel to Cordoba

The best time to visit Cordoba is in the spring. During the spring, the temperatures are good for walking, and you can be able to visit comfortably to the city’s most famous festivals and its flower-filled streets. The downside of visiting to Cordoba in the spring is that it can be crowded. This season is popular among tourists so the queues at museums and monuments can increase and accommodation prices drive up. If you prefer a quieter time with favorable weather conditions for your trip, then the best time to visit is in the fall.

How to Get to Cordoba?

Cordoba has an airport that only serves private flights and does not offer scheduled flights. Therefore, to travel directly to this city you need to take flight to Malaga and then go to Cordoba from there, and come back to Malaga for the return. There are two options to get from Malaga to Cordoba: Either taking a train that takes 50 minutes to 1 hour and 5 minutes or taking a 3-hour bus ride with more economical prices. Another option is renting a car. It takes about 1 hour 40 minutes to drive from Malaga to Cordoba. If you plan having an Andalusia tour, renting a car is undoubtedly the best option. Car rental prices are not very expensive if you make reservations in advance of your arrival.

In addition, if you plan to visit several cities in Andalusia, it may even be more economical calculating the train and bus fares for all of them and the number of people. If you are already in Spain, getting to Cordoba is easier. For example, Seville is only 40 minutes away by high-speed train (AVE operated by the national railway company Renfe), Granada is 1.5 hours away, Madrid is 1 hour 40 minutes away, Valencia is 3 hours away, and Barcelona is 4.5 hours away. Cordoba train station (Estación de Ferrocarril de Córdoba) is located near the city center, across from the bus station.
