Hotel Hospes Palacio del Bailío, Cordoba

If you believe a holiday should be about relaxing, taking time to explore the history of your surroundings, spending a couple of hours over lunch, and all evening enjoying dinner…then Hotel Palacio del Bailio is your perfect place to stay.

Nestling quietly at the heart of the Cordoba’s old town, this centuries-old palace gives you a fine balance between history, art, indulgence and a sense of wellbeing. Its aged walls instil a feeling of quietness and assurance. The gardens, full of fragrant flowers, exude calmness. The sun terrace, enveloped in the perfume of the surrounding orange trees, is the essence of relaxation.

Inside the Palacio you’ll find elegant rooms – many with original wall paintings and artwork – and an outstanding spa offering a full range of restorative, rejuvenating treatments.
