Puerta del Almodovar is a gateway, set in the old town wall. Pass through it and you enter the Juderia, or Jewish Quarter. It's a nice start to your visit and there are a number of cafés a few metres ahead after you pass through. Alternatively, you could follow the old city wall from the gateway down Calle Cairuan and enter via another gateway or continue on to the river.

Puerta del Almodovar is what remains of an old city gate. This gate is one of several that the city had around its medieval protective walls. This particular gate dates to around the 10th century, but it has been rebuilt once or twice. Originally it was the Moors who constructed it and then the Christians in the 14th century, when they re-took control of the city. The name of the gate comes from the fact it led to (or from) the city of Almodova, a few kilometres from Cordoba.

By looking closely at the agte, you can see the differing architectural styles and techniques that went into its construction. Roman-solid blocks. Moorish-dirt and bricks. Christian- reused slabs and concrete.

This is the entrance to the Jewish Quarter. The wall is very well preserved and you can’t help marvel at the impressive architecture. We walked along the entire wall since there are many points where you can enter the city.

Lovely tranquil part of Cordoba. Not all the ponds had water in but it was easy to imagine how nice this place would be. Good place for photos of the city walls.
