History & culture
Take a generous helping of classical Roman tradition, add a colourful slice of Andalusian heritage and throw in all the luxury you can imagine. The result is the splendid Hospes Palacio Del Bailio, the first 5-star hotel located in the historical heart of Cordoba.
A Cultural Heritage Monument dating back to the 16th century, savour the old-world charm amid the ancient Roman ruins remaining in this hotel, decorated with ancient frescoes, hand painted stucco walls and Moorish fountains.
The luxury rooms have great artistic and architectural value featuring original 18th century paintings and ancient frescoes with velvet headboards, flooded with light.
The Roman baths are still used at the Bodyna Spa where you can revive your senses and satisfy your soul in the luxury spa treatment cabins lined with Roman columns. We recommend you choose an indigenous spa treatment like the North African exfoliating scrub with Savon Noir Beldi, cleansed with black soap from Morocco.
Stimulate your tastebuds with Senzone cuisine offered at the Tapas Bar with traditional Cordoba tapas like the poor man’s creamed potato with egg and foie cubes or indulge in Andalusian delicacies at the Senzone Restaurant like salmorejo with tomato juice and Iberian bread.
Don’t forget to venture out into the culturally rich city of Cordoba, an urban area declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As a Roman city in ancient times and the capital of the Islamic Caliphate during the Middle Ages, enjoy exploring Cordoba’s Moorish and Roman remnants, such as the magnificent Roman bridge alongside the Great Mosque of Cordoba, the symbol of the city.
We like: The historical ambience with Moorish and Roman features.
Best for: A relaxing, cultural break in the heart of Cordoba.
