Cordoba train station

Ranking fourth in Spain for its daily volume of passengers, Cordoba train station is located to the north of the historic centre, making its main attractions easily accessible by foot. Opened in 1994, this modern transport hub provides travellers with shops, a full range of amenities and good links to the rest of the city. Located on the high-speed AVE route between Madrid and Seville, and Madrid and Malaga, this Andulsian city is just 1h40mins from the Spanish capital, with around 23 trains operating each day. From Seville, the journey time is just over 40 minutes, and from Malaga it’s between 50 minutes and 1h5mins. With Granada between 2h30mins and 3h00mins away, it makes Cordoba easy to access by train from Andalusia’s other heritage cities. Public buses 3 and 16 depart from the station to the city centre, stopping at some of the main sites. There’s also a taxi rank outside.

Main attractions near Cordoba train station

 If there’s ever been a reason to walk from the train station into the city, it’s Cordoba. Travellers arriving into Cordoba by train will find themselves just outside the beautiful botanical gardens and it’s a downhill, 20-minute stroll through these lush grounds to the city’s main attraction, the majestic mosque-cathedral of Cordoba. One of the world’s greatest examples of Islamic architecture, this incredible building is part of what makes the city so special. Cordoba ranks among the few places that are both Roman and Arabic capitals. Its incredible Old Town, a UNESCO-protected area, displays this rich historic legacy in a maze of white-washed, sun-baked streets that reveal architectural wonders, peaceful courtyards and scenes of the past. The streets that line the Guadalquivir river, just a block from here, are home to a great selection of waterfront cafes and restaurants, providing an idyllic setting to try Andalusian dishes like gazpacho or fried fish.

The city’s Jewish Quarter is between the mosque-cathedral and the botanical gardens, only a 15-minute walk from the station. It contains one of only three synagogues left in Spain, and it’s small but well-preserved, dating back to 1315. The grand Plaza de la Corredera is a rare architectural feature in Andalusia and dates back to the 17th century. Once the site of the Roman circus’s horse races and bullfights, now it’s the place to people-watch over dinner, and less than 30 minutes by foot from Cordoba train station.
