I walked a couple of years ago Cordova for the first time. It was shocking. I have traveled many places and I begin to feel - much to my regret - that it is somewhat more complicated to impress myself with each landscape, each city or each new monument. Until I arrived in Córdoba. A jewel set in the crown of Arab caliphs and Christian kings, between the emerald green of the waters of the Guadalquivir and the amber brown of the Sierra Morena de Curro Jiménez.
Córdoba is worth grabbing the attention of your five senses 24 hours a day. The touch of the ancient stone. Through it you will feel the passing of the years, the weight and the mark of a Story that made it great. Very big. You will hear the flow of water from the Guadalquivir under the mythical Puente Romano and the Spanish guitar sound on a terrace, torn by some soul in despair. In spring, you will smell the fragrance of the thousands of flowers that take the city and its courtyards. Your view will be filled with impressive architectural monuments, but also the beauty of its inhabitants, irrefutable proof of the goodness of racial mixing. And we have the pleasure ... To impress the taste in Cordoba, just visit the Victoria Market. I did it last weekend.
Origins of the Victoria Market
The Victoria Market opened its doors in 2013, Being the Andalusian first gastronomic market. Its history is closely linked to that of the Cordoba Fair, since the Victoria Market occupies the former booth of the Circle of Friendship, built in 1877 and has the honor of being the oldest in the Fair.
The building, made of forged zinc coated, is located on Paseo de la Victoria, a step away from the historic center of Córdoba.
