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

These horses are magical , I was a bit dubious about this, did they treat the horses well, how do they get them to do the tricks, but I was pleasenlty surprized to see that these horses are prized, looked after very well and the show was great, nothing that zhorse doing dressage wouldot be doing. We only went after... More

This show is absolutely amazing and horsemanship at its best. My wife is a keen horse person from the UK and has never seen something as good. Have seen the Spanish riding school in Vienna as well which is very good as well but not quite as authentic. Definitely worth to go seeing and finish with a a dinner at... More

We didn't go to a show, just looked around in the daytime. This place is free to enter at these times, but you have to buy tickets for the show (I think that they are 15E August 2015). The stables are in a wonderful building that is worth a visit even if you don't like horses - the arches shown... More

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.
