Cordoba

WORLD HERITAGE SITE

Hotel Las Casas de la Juderia enjoys an excellent location in Cordoba: its doors open out into Cordoba's Jewish quarter, opposite the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, the Royal Stables (Caballerizas Reales), the Caliphal Baths of Campo Santo de los Mártires and the Synagogue. Furthermore, the establishment is just 200 metres away from Cordoba's Mezquita and the Convention Centre (Palacio de Congresos).

 

This building was transformed into a hotel by carefully respecting the structure's history and architecture. This has resulted in a uniquely charming hotel with all the facilities and services guests may need, in addition to a beautiful setting where you can enjoy some peace and quiet.

 

OPPOSITE THE ALCAZAR DE LOS REYES CRISTIANOS

Cordoba's Alcázar, which is a solid-walled fortress and palace, contains a large amount of evidence regarding the evolution of Cordoba architecture in its interior. Roman and Visigoth people lived with those of Arabic origin in this majestic site as it was the favoured spot of different city governors. When Cordoba was conquered by Ferdinand III of Castile in 1236, the building (which forms a part of the old Caliphal Palace) was completely destroyed. Alfonso X of Castile began its restoration and this was completed during the reign of Alfonso XI. Throughout history, the building has had multiple uses: it was once the main headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition and once a prison (during the first half of the 19th Century).

 

First-time visitors to this fortress are blown away by this almost rectangular construction with its immense stone walls and four towers (Los Leones, El Homenaje, La Inquisición and Las Palomas) that mark the four corners.

 

THE ROYAL STABLES

In 1570, Philip II of Spain indulged his passion for horses through his project of creating the Pure Spanish Horse. He ordered the construction of the Royal Stables (las Caballerizas Reales) in a certain area of the Alcázar. The stables share a marked military character with this fortress. It is here the Pure Spanish Horse (also known as the Andalusian horse) was bred from Arabic lineage. The stables' main area features a cross-vaulted roof that is supported by sandstone columns. This area being divided into small boxes. Nowadays, the building belongs to the local government and is currently undergoing refurbishment in order to reestablish the culture of horses in the history of the Stables.

 

NEXT TO THE CALIPHAL BATHS

These baths formed a part of the caliphal Alcázar. Their construction was ordered in the 10th Century by Caliph al-Hakam II for the exclusive enjoyment of the monarch, his harem and his court. They respect the classic order inherited from Roman baths with cold, warm and hot baths organised into vaulted spaces that are illuminated by skylights in the form of stars. The baths were extended twice by the Almoravids and the Almohads. This is something that we have learned not long ago thanks to the archaeological remains that have been recently excavated.

 

BY THE SYNAGOGUE

Cordoba's Synagogue is the only one in Andalusia and is the third best preserved medieval era synagogue in Spain. Located in Cordoba's Jewish quarter, this building was constructed between 1314 and 1315 according to the inscriptions on the building itself. It served as a temple until the Expulsion of the Jews. A small vestibule can be accessed by crossing the patio. To the right of this vestibule you will find a set of stairs that provide access to the women's area. In front of this is the main area, which is quadrangular in shape. This space is decorated with Mudejar arabesques, while the wall that supports the women's platform opens out with three arches that are adorned with exquisite yeseria (a plaster carving design used by the Moors). The Jews were banished from Spain in 1492.
