Cordoba Apartments by District
Apartments Near La Mezquita
The centrepiece of the city is undoubtedly the lustrous La Mezquita, which is also known as the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. As one the most accomplished examples of Islamic architecture anywhere in the world, this gorgeous former mosque still retains an aura of serenity even in spite of the throngs of visitors it continually attracts.
With a splendid courtyard lined with orange and cypress trees, an imposing 54m-high bell-tower and a sublime arch-laden interior space, when it comes to architectural and aesthetic greatness La Mezquita is certainly on par with its better-known Moorish cousin in Granada, the Alhambra.
After the Reconquista the mosque was claimed for Christianity and a rather incongruous Renaissance nave was built on top during the 16th century - hence the current ‘Mosque-Cathedral’ nomenclature. The building is currently managed by the local authority.
If you’re looking for a flat for rent in La Mezquita, you should expect to pay between €425 and €750 a month for a furnished apartment. Prices in the area can vary according to number of bedrooms, age of the building, number of standard amenities and location.
The La Mezquita neighbourhood itself is a bustling assemblage of narrow winding streets and medieval buildings, and is set within the wider area of La Juderia.
Apartments in La Juderia
As you etymologists out there might have already worked out, La Juderia is the city’s old Jewish quarter. Consisting of a labyrinthine network of narrow lanes, this compact barrio was home to the city’s Jewish population between the 10th and 15th centuries. Although Jews were expelled from Andalusia in 1492, the area’s Jewish heritage is still present in its buildings.
The La Juderia area is rich in historical and architectural delights, and is home to one of only three original synagogues left in Spain. Built in 1315, the Sinagoga de Córdoba is a fine example of Mudéjar architecture and is replete with elegant stucco work. Although it is open to the public, the synagogue no longer holds religious services.
Other significant historical relics in the area include the famous statue of medieval Jewish polymath Maimonides, and the 14th-century Moorish gate known as La puerta de Almodóvar.
Unlike similar barrios in Seville and Granada, the area has not been commercialised and still retains its distinctive cross-cultural historical character. La Juderia remains one of Córdoba’s most interesting neighbourhoods, and its lavish monuments are complemented by a host of fantastic restaurants that specialise in local Andalusian cuisine.
Apartments in the neighbourhood tend to compromise on size due to the age of the buildings in the area. However, the majority are equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, meaning you won’t have to sweat it out in the searing Spanish summertime. With Nestpick, you’ll find plenty of great apartments in La Juderia, Córdoba.
Apartments in San Basilio
The beautiful old San Basilio neighbourhood of Córdoba is one of the most charming quarters in the entire region. This picturesque, whitewashed part of town is also known as Alcázar Viejo, and is home to many of Córdoba’s beguiling flower-filled patios and courtyards - a defining image of the city. These blooming private gardens are open to the public every May during the alluring Feria de los Patios festival.
One of the most prominent landmarks in San Basilio is the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos (Castle of the Christian Kings), which was built by King Alfonso XI of Castile in 1328 on the ruins of an old Moorish fort. Although a Christian construction project during the Reconquista, Alfonso chose to build in a Mudéjar style, thus preserving the Moorish legacy of the site.
The Alcázar is located next to the magnificent Jardines del Alcázar, a luscious green garden that makes for a perfect afternoon stroll in the sunshine.
Furnished apartments for rent in the San Basilio area are similar to price to the nearby neighbourhood of La Juderia, though not as readily available. Most of the properties here are built in an Andalusian style, with white exteriors, light-filled interiors and spacious outdoor patios. The majority of apartments are also fully equipped with modern amenities - and practically all have air conditioning units.
