Córdoba is a hot place to be in the summer and the Parador Arruzafa de Córdoba is built amongst the ruins of the summer palace of the caliph Abdu’r-Raman I, at the foot of the Córdoba mountain range. It was Abdu’r-Raman who planted the first palm trees in Europe and Arruzafa means ‘Garden of the palm trees’ in Arabic.

The Parador is 3km (10 minutes’ drive) from the city in a hilly area and so benefits from cooler air.
This is an outdoor Parador with outside dining on the terrace, ample gardens surrounding the pool and panoramic views over the city from the terrace - ideal for a pre-dinner drink.

The public rooms are spacious with furnishings of carved wood with metal and leather trim.  The wood floors, profusion of potted plants and the blend of Arab and Andalusian influences complete the picture.

The restaurant serves a mixture of international food and local regional dishes.

As Córdoba is not an easy city to navigate by car, one can leave the car behind and either take a taxi (c.8 Euros) into the town or take the local bus (line 13 – c.1.30 Euros) from nearby the Parador.
