In 1570, King Philip II, who was a great lover of horses, set out on a scheme to create a pure thoroughbred Spanish horse. He ordered the Royal Stables to be built, where he bred the Spanish horse or Andalusian horse, which was of Arab origin. The main stable room itself, with its vaulted ceiling supported by sandstone pillars is divided into smaller separate areas, known as boxes

A delightful dusk watching beautiful equines and hunky caballeros-what could be better? We queued early to make sure we could sit at the front but there wasn't really a bad seat in the stand. Loved the chariot and the dressage routines but the prancing, rearing mares were spectacular. Very good value. I booked online the same day but couldn't print... More

A little bit hokey but these horses, riders and performers are wonderful entertainment. Be on time-we got a bit lost and made it in just in time. You are seated on either end of the riding area and very close to the horses. In fact some front row folks got some horse snot and sawdust kicked up on them. You... More

The stable, horses, riders and dancers are well worth a visit. The shows start at 21.00 so cooler in the evening for everyone. The shows vary but the horsemanship is superb. Beautiful horses. Not expensive. Around 15 euros for over an hour.

We found the show great and spectacular.. every scene was inspired by the Andalusian soul and aim to extol and praise Andalusian horse, its elegance and flexibility, showing all the different use it can perform excellent. Highly recommended by a horse-lover.

If you like horses you can be sure that the money you pay for the entrance fee will be worth the value. The horses are just beautiful. The show is well planned (not too long) and you get the impression of being in Spain once all Andalusian and Cordoba ambience make part of the show.

As a tip sitting at the front of the arena is better I think. So when you enter go to the right. The horses were gorgeous and some good skills were shown. Each show was quite short. I didn't mind the flamenco dancer though couldn't see the point of the two dancers riding on the horses on the back. It... More

Cordoba is beautiful and worth visiting, and this place is a pearl, with its beautiful horses, the old stables and the great show that they put on. I advise everyone going to Cordoba to visit. They have a site, please check there the timetables as I forgot.

There are horse shows most evenings for just a few euros entrance. The horses are the same breed as the Spanish Riding School on Vienna and the perform many of the same routines including airs above the ground. Not quite the same class as the Spanish Riding School but then I paid 15€ for 2 of us in Cordoba and... More

This was a tremendous treat for us and I was so sorry when it ended! It was totally mesmerising, as the horses, riders and flamenco dancers were truly brilliant! Pure excellence for a mere 15 euros! Do not miss it! Can't wait to go again!

Stables & Andalusian Horses date from 1570; still actively housing & a 'showcase' for these wonderful horses and their riders. Colorful equestrian shows several nights weekly for 15 Euros (check schedule... times vary). NOTE: free entry to view stables/horses daily; we lucked upon an intensive training session of horses and riders... a highlight of our Cordoba visit!
