Both the ancient Roman and Muslim cultures are greatly represented in Cordoba. Today, the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba intersects the religions of both east and west. The town square, which comes alive with three festivals during the month of May, has some of the finest hotels in Cordoba. The palace of Le Mezquita overlooks the city from the hills, and is a beautiful sight to see at night. One of the main industries here is mining, since the location on the river allows easy access to the minerals in the nearby Sierra Morena. The tourist sector is likewise huge, with a wide selection of hotels in Cordoba.
Hotels in Cordoba can be easily accessed from both the train station and airport. There are high speed train connections to Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, and Seville, as well as other cities. From Malaga Airport, you can take a train which gets you into Cordoba in just over 50 minutes. Local buses are another alternative, and the bus stops have clear route maps and diagrams. Many hotels in Cordoba are within walking distance of the main sights in the city.
