Rural Hostel Fuente Agria is 20 minutes away from Córdoba by motorway. The city of the Mezquita (Mosque-Cathedral), allows us to taste a bit of a millennial culture, whose heritage can be experienced through its alleys and small squares. A friendly and warm town, joyous and festive.

Among its alleys and little squares scented with orange blossom and jasmine, sure you´ll find the right place to breath it and feel it in good company.

A town where flamenco has pronounced itself with authority and where the gastronomic offer leaves nobody indifferent.

Its historic quarter was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, as it was the Mosque-Cathedral ten years before, in 1984.

It was candidate for the European Capital of Culture 2016 title, becoming finalist to represent Spain.

Besides, the Festival of los Patios in Córdoba was designated Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.
