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

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!

Even if you can't make the show that these horses put on, walk down to the royal stables and see what is going on inside. We saw several of the horse and carriages come in.

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
