Las Casas de la Juderia: an Andalusian palace

The former Pavas palace (so-called because of the two peacocks (pavos reales) that support the coat of arms on the building's facade), birthplace of the great Baroque poet, Luis de Gongora, is now incorporated with adjoining houses in a luxurious five-star hotel, clearly inspired by the traditional style of Cordoba.


As the hotel name suggest, it is located in the Jewish Quarter, in a complex of houses dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, close to the Alcazar de los Reyes Catolicos - the Catholic monarchs' palace - the Caliphal Baths and the Synagogue.  The rehabilitation of the buildings has been carried out with maximum respect for the history and architecture. The art and culture of Cordoba is evident throughout, the intricate detail of the headboards being a fine example of local craftsmanship passed down through the centuries. Traditional cuisine is served in the bright and elegant restaurant, which occupies the old stables of the palace. The courtyards and terraces offer a wonderful opportunity to relax in a magical world of scents and sensations as the fountains play and the flowers and plants create pools of cool shade.
