5 Days – 4 Nights

Trip date now confirmed as 10 – 14 May 2020

The Festival runs from 4 – 17 May in 2020

For more information follow this link http://patios.cordoba.es/en to the Patios of Cordoba website for 2019 (the 2020 website has not yet been released).

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.

If you would like to join this amazing trip please do book now. The clock is running and we do not want to miss out.

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 only, this will enable us to enjoy the many tapas bars and restaurants situated all over the old town – and most are very reasonably priced.

We 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.

We will be staying at the 4 star Hotel Eurostar Conquistador on a bed and breakfast basis (hot buffet breakfast) in the old town opposite the mosque.

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, but if enough people are interested we can arrange for a guided tour, but this will be at extra cost.

As I´m sure you all appreciate the hotels fill up very quickly In Cordoba during the patio festival in May, that is why I require the deposit payments to be made immediately.

We will be using Gandia Travel for this trip. They have supported our U3A with their expertise on many occasions in the past, and I am confident this will continue.

The total cost is approximately 470 euro each (to be confirmed later this year)

A single supplement of 75 euro will apply

A PAID DEPOSIT OF 150 EURO EACH PLACE WILL CONFIRM YOUR BOOKING

Deposit payments are preferred by Bank Transfer (please quote the trip name as the reference). Click here for Bank detail

IMPORTANT – To ensure we can allocate your bank transfer payment correctly please quote the name “Cordoba” in the Concepto box on the transfer form, the box is quite small, but we don´t want to allocate it to another member!

As we do not have another meeting until September we are unable to take cash payments at present. Though if enough members do need to pay by cash I may be able to arrange to meet one morning during July. Please email if you are in this position.

Important Note: If you have mobility issues please do let us know at the time of booking and we will try to arrange a seat near to the front of the coach. But please note the front row of seats must be reserved for the trip organisers as we need to be able to converse with the driver and access the microphone – surprising how many people don´t realise that!
