PLEASE DO NOT BOOK AT PRESENT

As travellers know I am currently refunding everyone who had signed up for this trip, but I am keeping it in the diary for the reason stated below.

A number of members have expressed their support for the trip to run in the future, so provided the Covid 19 pandemic crisis is clear by the Autumn I will be running this trip next year.  Initially I will be offering this to the members who were going this year before opening it up to the Javea U3A membership.

Trip date 9 – 13 May 2021 – to be confirmed (5 days & 4 nights)

For more information follow this link http://patios.cordoba.es/en to the Patios of Cordoba website for 2019 (the 2021 website is expected to be available early 2021.

The Patios Fiesta of Cordoba is a unique world-famous attraction covering about 15 days during May every year. It has become one of the must see attractions in Spain. We will be spending three full days and four nights in Cordoba to enable us to really experience this truly spectacular event.

Travelling by coach from Javea to Cordoba, with plenty of comfort breaks on the way, our hotel is situated in the old town with the various patios within walking distances. We will be staying on a bed and breakfast basis, this will enable us to enjoy the many tapas bars and restaurants situated all over the old town – with many being very reasonably priced.

You can also visit many of the beautiful buildings in the City. For example, the Mosque of Cordoba is one of the largest in the world, and is considered the most important Islamic monument in the West.

One of the very special archaeological sites in the region is the Medina Azahara situated just outside of Cordoba. This is easily reached from the town, and we are considering an options to add to a guided tour with travel by shuttle bus from Cordoba. However all of the information is on the website here http://www.museosdeandalucia.es/web/conjuntoarqueologicomadinatalzahra/inicio
