Throughout the region of Andalusia there are quite a few houses with hanging flower pots.
I think this is the most special place.
In the evening there are also musicians who come and dance in the area.
And especially in the vestibule from which the clock tower of the cathedral can be seen, very special

Calleja de las Flores is a wonderfully picturesque little street in Cordoba. The locals obviously take great pride in their street and their city and take exceptional measures to ensure their flower pots are well looked after. And we as visitors are thankful that they do, because they are indeed so beautiful.

Instagram has propelled this pretty little street into fame. It is little more than a narrow corridor between whitewashed walls but a couple of things make it special. On either side of the street, the walls are lined with rows of flowers hanging in bright blue pots. We were there in winter before the geraniums had bloomed but even then the planter pots looked pretty. The other special thing is that from one end of the street, and from a certain angle, you can capture a photo with the Cathedral’s bell tower sitting perfectly in between the two rows of houses. It does make a good photo.
It can get very crowded and it is worth remembering that there are many other similar narrow, winding, white-washed streets that also make great photos, especially in the historic Jewish Quarter. Cordoba is definitely not short of picturesque streets. One of the things we enjoyed most about Cordoba, was exploring these areas.

A perfect example of the utter hollow nonsense of tourist hype. It’s a street. There are others. It has some flowers in pots. There are many beautiful patios elsewhere. There are shuffling hordes craning their necks to find anything to pique their interest. There are many such shoals to shudder through in the tight tourist enclave.

Calleja de las Flores is a short, narrow street with a very small square at the end. It is a residential street and the houses have blue flower pots on their exterior white walls. It's pleasant to see and a photo opportunity. Little more, but worth seeing while you wander around the old town.

What an amazing narrow little street! "Calleja de las Flores" is probably the image that all visitors will always keep in their memories of Cordoba! A narrow street, white walls, small balconies, hundreds of blue flowerpots with ... beautiful blossoming geraniuns and petunias! At its end, a partial view of the "Bell Tower" of the awesome "Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba". Unforgettable! A quick stop, a few pics, a deep breath ... and the unique Andalusian atmosphere! Be ready for crowds. Enjoy!

Calleja de las Flores is simply a side street down which, if one turns round, you can view the spire of the mosque through an array of pretty flower pots. Other than this, however, there is nothing to be found down here-- of course, venture down to take a lovely photograph and then stop off at the cosy bar of this calleja called 'El Abanico'.

Why do we do this? Why do we wander off to see places like this? And why do some people think the experience was near orgasmic. What am I missing? To me quite simply a street packed with tourists, including me for a brief moment. Aside from the coach parties descending on what is essentially an alley it has very little to offer. Unless you like white washed walls, some flower pots, a leather shop, a trinket shop all wrapped up into something that resembles the Tokyo underground. Avoid.

First to be perfectly clear my review is only of the specific street Calleja de Las Flores which is hyped in all of the online sites (like this one) and travel blogs. The reason I am giving it such a poor rating is because there is barely anything to see on this street and there is no reason to mention it. Every single person who we came across on this street was complaining about why anyone would bother to point this one street out.

However, Cordoba prides itself on their beautiful patios and if you simply wander around its streets you will see plenty of gorgeous patios and balconies. It seems everyone has a gorgeous little patio and sometimes you'll find a little artisan shop with some silver wares being sold inside of someone's beautiful flower lined patio. Cordoba is beautiful so do yourself a favor and explore, get (nearly) lost and explore it - just save yourself the disappointment of looking for Calleja de las Flores.
