The is situated in the heart of the historical quarter of Cordoba. It is a typical house of Andalusia with several green courtyards inside Since 1995 they are specialized in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Moreover, from the beginning they have successfully participated in some European programmes such as LEONARDO DA VINCI and SOCRATES
A young team of Spanish native teachers who has a university degree in teaching languages works in the.

So they use an active teaching-method in permanent contact with Spanish people.
The beautiful entrance of our school Its design is typical of Andalusia
The staff of Academia Córdoba is always smiled and friendly The interior astonishes … but you have to see it by yourself
Having arrived to Córdoba at 7 o’clock in the evening, we were surprised of it’s climate – it was over 40 degrees! For us - Polish, when there is 20 degrees in our country, it is too hot. It does not matter you are tired after a long journey; you start "swallowing" the city! Guadalquivir
The city is beautiful. Narrow, one-way streets... You feel here like in forgotten city, which you have to explore. The atmosphere makes you feel as if you played in some old movie The heat and surrounding music match perfectly.
The example of mixing different cultures is El-Mezquita- a mosque rebuilt into a Roman Catholic Church. Having a first look on the church it takes your breath away, but when you enter this building you just start admiring it with your mouth open. The columns inside start overwhelming you and you feel like a "lost” person in a forest. In front of the church there is a tree garden with some orange trees
The Alcazar The Fortress of the Christian Monarchs is one of Cordoba’s major landmarks. Built in the 8th century as caliphate residence, this complex of buildings and gardens had reached major significance during the Middle Ages, when Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella had been residing there for eight years. The Alcázar is a composition of massive fortress and royal palace.
Templo Romano Temple of mythological Gods. The ruins of this temple lie next to the Town Hall. The ruins that remain suggest that it was a very large building. It was dedicated to the Gods of mythology. It lies in the centre of an arcaded square. It is elevated on a high podium supported by Corinthian columns. It is from the era of Flavius.
La Plaza de Corredera Corredera Square is one of the most magnificent Cordoban squares. This large rectangular square impresses by absence of Andalusian architecture. Actually, it is the only place in town with Castlilian buildings as they are found in Madrid or Salamanca. Corredera Square is the place where first Cordoba bullfights occured. Also, horse races took place at this square. Today, a number of restaurants and taverns featuring outdoor terraces make Corredera Square a perfect place to recover from sightseeing. Also, the square’s arcades invite for strolling through small shopping facilities.
The city of Córdoba at night - what a view! At night Córdoba is full of life, and people… We noticed some parents with their children at 1.30 a.m. For us it is incredible! Children are running and playing some games at night Plaza de las Tendillas It is strange because in our far country children do not go out with parent at night. When we noticed the fountains, we took advantage of it, and ….. we were really wet
