If you know nothing about flamenco, learn; If you are an expert, learn more. A wonderful old building, which, though medieval, is still very disabled friendly with a good lift. The models of the building through the ages are very child friendly too.

This charming little posada brought to life the scenes from Don Quixote. Not to be missed during a visit to Cordoba, especially as it is right in the centre of the town and close to other sites. And if you haven't read Cervantes, after visiting...More

Mentioned in "Don Quixote", the interesting building now houses a small but interesting art museum. It is well worth a visit, if only because it stands in a very interesting area.

We popped in to see this on the way to the Plaza de la Corredera. We should have made the Potro the main aim. It is beautifully restored/maintained and well worth a visit.

Charming place that fortunately seems to be overlooked by most. Wished i could have had a quick look at the rooms.

An old patio with rooms, used to be the hostal where Cervantes stayed several times: he included the posada in some episodes of El Quijote. Kept identical to ancient times.

Intimate space with fountain, fine art gallery right on the square, cafes for watching the world go by.
