Experience in Córdoba, Spain by Miguel

Why did you choose to go to Córdoba, Spain?

Córdoba is a very calm city to live in. Maybe it's "too much" calm, but If I had to choose among all of the cities I have lived in (Madrid, Granada, Jaén, Úbeda and Cáceres), I would stay in Córdoba in every sense. It's one hour and a half far from the beach (Torremolinos or Málaga City), Sierra Nevada in 2h and 30min, 300000 inhabitans, so it means that you can find everything, a charming city with many places to be discovered... etc

What is the student lifestyle like in Córdoba?

As I said before, it has a relaxing lifestyle, although many bars are getting better and better regarding prices and tapas. Ciudad Jardín has nothing to envy Granada.

How much does it cost to live in Córdoba?

As you decide. There are very cheap places, and others

are very expensive, it depends on knowing where to find them and your "demands".

Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Córdoba?

The neighbourhood per excellence has always been Ciudad Jardín, there is no doubt thatit's the best neighbourhood for students, you can find many flats to hire. There are some prejudices about being not very commercial and has a lot of inmigrants, but they are just clichés, it will always be the best one to live in Córdoba.

What is the food like?

Córdoba has an internationally recognised gastronomy. Its famous dishes are salmorejo, flamenquín, oxtail stew, ajoblanco, and they are exported and known more and more...

My favourite food is my mother's meat pie, but I'm sorry, it's not for sale. hehe.

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

Apart from the typical monuments (Mosque, Alcázar, Calahorra, Medinat Al-Zahara, The Ermitas), I recommend any viewpoint from Brillante/Sierra at night to see the city illuminated, a piece of tortilla and salmorejo in Casa Pepe, and having dinner in Plaza de la Luna, next to the Alcázar. Food is great and then you will find a pub with live music, just perfect.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Córdoba?

Moriles Pata Negra, Moriles 3 (Zoco), Picnic, Confucio, Mesón La Luna, apart from another famous ones.

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Córdoba?


Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Córdoba in the future?

Don't compare it to Granada, each city has its own charm, just dicover it. Don't ask people from the own city about it, unfortunately, outsiders like Córdoba more than its locals.
