A serene haven just off the tourist beat but centrally located..this mansion dates back to the 16th century and has a series of courtyards planted with jasmine, orange and lemon trees..the most amazing thing about it though is this building is built on roman remains & 16th century murals..find out more.
the roman ruins beneath a glass ceiling underneath the main dining area..it's not visible but the mosaic floor is beautiful and all in one piece.
my super comfy bed with an assortment of pillows (yes they have a pillow menu lol)
it's pretty hard to imagine that once upon a time Cordoba aka قرطبة was the thriving capital of the Caliphate (خلافة) i've come to regard it as a ghost town. apart from the great mosque (which at one point housed 40,000 people for prayer) imagine!! the gastronomical scene was not anything i was impressed with, maybe due to the fact that august (hotttttttest moth) is not the peak season & every major restaurant is closed for vacation, nonetheless cordoba needed a day's worth of sightseeing i spent the other 2 days pampering myself @ bodyna the hotel spa ...& yes it's true i have a newly professed love for boutique hotels.
i leave you with Clicks from Cordoba x
