Guess what? Córdoba is also named and spelled Cordoba - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Córdoba was the capital of the Roman province Hispania Ulterior Baetica during the Roman Golden Age, which was marked by many recreational buildings. The city was a home for some of the greatest Latin philosophers like Lucius Annaeus Seneca, speakers like Marcus Annaeus Seneca, and poets like Lucan. In the eighth century, Arab and Berber armies invaded the Iberian Peninsula, and in less than seven years, conquered almost all of it. Cordoba was the capital of the Independent Emirate and the Umayyad Caliphate of the West; it had between two hundred and fifty thousand and five hundred thousand inhabitants and it was one of the largest cities in the medieval world. Later, the city was fought back and kept its importance in the Medieval Ages.
Today, Córdoba has more than three hundred thousand inhabitants (up from forty thousand just one hundred and fifty years ago) and is a popular tourist destination that is well connected to other Spanish cities. The rich history of the city can satisfy even the most pretentious travelers. It has the second-largest historical district in Europe, the largest urban area declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Cathedral-Mosque of Córdoba, alongside the magnificent Roman Bridge, is the landmark of the city. The Roman Temple located on the Capitulares Street, the Roman Theater located under the Archaeological and Ethnological Museum of Córdoba, and the Roman Mausoleum are only a few of the places that must be visited.
There are many hostels in Córdoba and they practically cover all price ranges, starting from very cheap hostels to expensive accommodation for travelers who are ready to spend more. There is concentration of Córdoba hostels in the city center next to the Archeological Museum but there are a few Córdoba hostels in other parts of the city. In general, even cheaper hostels in Córdoba offer more than good facilities and visitors should not have many problems with accommodation unless they visit the city during some of the carnivals when prices are significantly higher.
