OUR GUIDE TO VISIT THE PROVINCE OF CÓRDOBA
The province of Córdoba is located in the north-central part of the autonomous community of Andalucía, Spain. It neighbours the provinces of Sevilla, Málaga, Jaén, Granada, Ciudad Real and Badajoz. Its capital is Córdoba, the muslim capital of Spain, a city with a lot of history to discover.
Córdoba is divided into three areas: Sierra Morena in the north, a mountain range that separates the Central Plateau from the Guadalquivir depression, the Guadalquivir valley, which crosses the province of Córdoba from east to west, and the Sierras Subbéticas, declared a natural park in 1988. The province of Córdoba was in total 77 municipalities, which will surprise you with their uniqueness and unparalleled historical beauty.
The history of this province begins in 1883, when several towns of the former Kingdom of Córdoba joined together with towns in the neighbouring province of Extremadura, such as Belalcázar, Fuente la Lancha, Hinojosa del Duque and Villanueva del Duque. There are two towns, Chillón and its village of Guadalmez, which belonged to the Kingdom of Córdoba and became part of the province of Ciudad Real.
The Gastronomy of the province of Córdoba stands out for being influenced by various cultures such as Roman cuisine, with the use of olives, Andalusian cuisine in the Middle Ages, Sephardic gastronomy with white gazpacho and the introduction of pork consumption through the Christian reconquest. Nowadays, the gastronomy of Córdoba is part of the Andalusian cuisine. We find its incredible salmorejo cordobés, a cream with incredible flavours and typical products of the area such as garlic, olive oil, salt and tomato, as well as its incredible stews such as Rabo de toro (oxtail) or the fried aubergines in breadcrumbs, an incomparable flavour.
In the province of Córdoba you can find amazing natural spaces, among them stand out: Los Baños de Popea, a natural stretch of small waterfalls and waterfalls alternating with small backwaters, a natural treasure. Sotos de la Albolafia, another great protected natural area and declared a natural monument, or the Natural Park of Hornachuelos bordering the Sierra Norte de Sevilla natural park, a natural space that will leave you speechless.
