Private guided tour of Medina Azahara to enjoy the splendour of Andalusia

Private guided tour of Medina Azahara

Half Day Trip from Cordoba to the capital of the Andalusian Caliphate

A few kilometres from Córdoba, the caliph Abderramán III erected a new capital as a symbol of the greatness and power of his caliphate.

Its ephemeral history contributed to making Cordoba a reference point for civilisation and culture. In just under a century it was built and destroyed.

Ibn Arabí, the Andalusian poet, spoke of the origin of this beautiful city: “Azahara, a slave girl from the caliph’s harem, so captivated the heart of her owner, Abderramán III, that he ordered a beautiful city to be built for her”.

The existence of Medina Azahara was indeed as intense as it was brief, but the story does not end here. Do you really want to meet her?

Visit the city of Madīnat al-Zahrā’ with us on an exclusive private tour and immerse yourself in Umayyad al-Andalus to feel the energy that emanates from this World Heritage archaeological site.

Stroll through its high-walled streets and palatial rooms, delight in the stone carved decoration on its walls,… In short, transport yourself with us to the 10th century, when no city in the world had reached the level of excellence of Medina Azahara.

After a short break we will visit the museum of Medina Azahara where you will be able to see the main archaeological finds and learn more secrets of this impressive place.

To get to Medina Azahara you can choose between a private transfer from the city or arrive directly with your own vehicle. Choose the option that best suits you and discover a place full of history with Andalucía 360.
