We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

Tour description

Do you want to get to know Córdoba with the best guides in the city? Do not miss our Free tour Medina Azahara

On our Medina Azahara Free Tour you will understand why its founder, the Cordovan Umayyad Caliph Abderramán III, gave it the name "The Brilliant City" .


The archaeological site was ordered to be built in the year 936 as a royal residence and seat of the government of Al-Andalus. Currently , it is considered world heritage and one of the most relevant and representative monuments in the history of medieval Europe .

On this guided tour of Medina Azahara we will walk through the streets that once housed the old Arab civil and military administration.

We will also travel back in time to get lost among its ruins, corridors, guardian and servant rooms, mosques, towers and royal halls, the pool and the great portico, and imagine what life was like in that majestic palace.
You will also get to know the Medina Azahara Interpretation Center.
