About
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 unique show and experience
    Pasion Y Duende show was really interesting. Something unique and we learned a bit about dressage and horse training but the best part was the few dances between horse/rider and Flamenca. Seating is not great and suggest premium seating at the short end as you get a cushion and some back support. Plus earlier interaction with horses. No photos allowed during performance.

    A memorable show
    We went to the Friday night equestrian show at the Caballerizas Reales in Cordoba and it was a wonderful experience, a dazzling display of equestrian skill, and the riders are obviously revered in Spain, and they turned on a wonderful performance. We’re not horse people, but it was a real spectacle and treat. Highly recommended if you can get tickets, go for the better seats along the side, the riders really play to their audience there

    Interesting morning visit
    There wasn't an evening show on the days we were in town but we did go along one morning to watch the horses being put through their paces in the ring. It was free to enter and you just take a seat in the stands. The horses and riders were coming in one by one and going through their paces and being judged - not really sure what was happening but it was very interesting. The stable itself is beautiful with old cobbles on the floor and vaulted ceilings. Worth half an hour of your time.

    Vast as befitting Royalty
    Home of the famous horses it had its origins in 1570. This was when King Philip II ordered its construction to foster the breeding of purebred Spanish horses. It is a vast complex, as befits its role, and has been likened to some as a Cathedral for equines.

Absolutely boiling mad. I timed our visit to Cordoba to visit the Royal stables on Monday morning. On this site it says they are open till 13.30. On the door of the stables it says IT'S OPEN TILL 13.30. We got there at 11.00 and it was shut. There was a man inside and I yelled enough that he opened the door. He just kept saying "closed Monday" even with me pointing at the sign.

This is a major tourist attraction in the city, maybe they could get their act together and get their signs up to date. It's really not difficult.

A highlight of our trip to Spain! Hot, 105F degrees at 8 pm. Thunder, lightning and even light rain. The horses and riders were spectacular! The woman flamenco dancer was so beautiful as she “danced” with the horse and rider! Just amazing! Visited the horses before the show and watched them warm-up. Truly so special. Loved every moment of the show. Such fabulous horses and riders!

Worth buying the premium tickets as you can enter the ring early and watch the horses train. No photography allowed during the show so a good opportunity to take some beforehand.
We’ll worth a visit 👍

It was interesting to see the architecture from the inside and the sheer scale of the place is impressive. Good value entry fee and very quick compared to some sites. But, we were rather searching for something to do as we didn't enjoy Cordoba very much. With a fixed return time for our train back to Seville, and having had enough of walking around, we eventually spent more time in the train station than anywhere on the tourist trail.

Fantastic place to see history in the making. Great equestrian show in the evening. Dazzling display of horse, master meeting flamico dancers. Great building and Royal Stables.

After a day or two of shelling out for everything, it was lovely to get something for free!

If you just wish to wander in during the daytime, when there isn't a show on, you can.

You can see the stables with their vaulted ceilings, the training ring (also visible from above when you are in the Alcazar Tower), and usually a few horses walking around with stable girls in the patio area.
