   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

This was the highlight of my trip to Cordoba this time. I have visited Cordoba on several previous occasions and had always missed this show before with my schedule. This time I bought a ticket at the stables direct on the morning of the show. I was also advised that this also allowed me to visit the stables for the... More

We attended the evening show that offers, among the other sets, the flamenco dancer with a horse rider. The whole gig is well set up and entertaining, although we are not really into horse riding (we followed a friend's advice). The relationship between riders and horses is quite amazing.

We highly recommend you take time out when visiting Cordoba to see this magnificent show/display of the Andalusian horses superbly choreographed to wonderful music. there are two shows per week in the evening. Booking available on line. However always get to the gate 30 mins before as there are no specific seats allocated and there is always a queue. First... More

I only visited the training. Cost €5. You can visit the empty stables with carriages in on your ticket to the Palace. There are separate tickets for the training which us 11-2. It is high school so lots of in hand leaping & tapping with sticks. Lots of macho men (no women ride) schooling, some with more empathy than others.... More

You don't need to be a horse lover to enjoy this show. Their website shows their tickets as being 'sold out' months in advance, but there were plenty available at the door at show time. The horses are so beautiful and well trained, and the show tried to not only showcase the traditional training techniques but included a couple of... More

In short, if you simply don’t have time to read my whole review, I will put it in a nutshell within the first paragraph. If you are interested to read more, continue down to the second.

After all the hype I'd read, I was looking forward to something impressive. Maybe I had my expectations inflated unrealistically. My daughter is a rider, and we have taken in a number of impressive performances, like Cavalia in the U.S. The horses in this show did some nice movements. They were well-trained. It just wasn't impressive. AND the so-called "flamenco"... More

Great bit of history and well preserved. Worth seeing and the horses are pet if Córdoba history. You can walk in and see the stables for free and the old carriages are fantastic to see.

We came upon the Caballerizas Reales de Cordoba quite by accident. It was a local festival Sunday which was ruined by heavy rain.To escape the rain we came across these stables which were being used as part of the festival by local traders. However, there was a ticket booth and a vidio showing the horses. With nothing to lose we... More

Excellent show lasting about a hour combining flamenco and horses - it was really well done. It was crowded which reflects its popularity - be sure to have your tickets before you join the queue or you coul be disappointed. There are no seat numbers and you sit on benches at either end of the indoor arena which was fine.... More
