Type: Horseback Riding Stables, Sports
Owner description: 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

Nice looking building with pretty horses. It is only worth it if you do it with it included in the Duende show.

Loved the show! The setting sun added a nice touch to the scene. Horses were beautiful and seemed to love the attention. Too bad the commentary was in Spainish only.

I was a bit underwhelmed at the show which featured a lot of "fluff" and not a lot of actual horse dancing. The act that absolutely saved the show and made the entire evening worth it was the single trainer with the four white horses. This was sensual and beautiful and fantastic and all kinds of other superlatives. Gorgeous! But... More

It's free to wander in and see the spectacular stables and the riding area. The stables show the high cost/standard that was expected when these were built. The collection of carriages and carts through the ages in each of the stalls is also nice as you can get right up and touch each of them and look inside to see... More

We visited the Equestrian Show last Sunday evening, 21 September, the weather had been overcast for much of the day and rain had been forecast for the evening. However, we were prepared to sit outside and watch this wonderful show, so we arrived early and queued at the entrance. The ticket inspector was not at all friendly and shouted at... More

The stables were interesting with some lovely architecture. There were a few antique carriages but not that spectacular. I was looking forward to the Horse display but was a bit disappointed. Some bits, such as the carriage driving, were spectacular. From a horsey persons, point of view, I thought the dressage was average. Given the heat of august I expected... More

Having always wanted to watch 'dancing horses', what better setting to see a show than in Cordoba at the royal stables. We bought our tickets on the gate just after 9pm after checking online before our holiday and finding that they weren't in demand. Having said that there were plenty of other people with the same idea but the seating... More

Both our hotel and many Tripadvisor reviews encouraged a visit here, so we decided to go. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed. The show was only about an hour and at 15 euros a person I do not feel it was a great value. The explanations for the show were all in Spanish and on a poor sound system, which was not... More

The horses are pretty and some of the tricks are impressive, but there really isn't enough material for the full hour and a lot the show is random trotting in circles or repeats of previously seen tricks (e.g. the horses trotting in diagonal gets repeated more than enough times to stop being impressive). The introductions in Spanish aren't too helpful... More
