Spain’s rich and dramatic history has made it a land of secular traditions that still fascinates and attracts a huge number of tourists. The exceptional climate of the Iberian Peninsula is yet another selling point for visiting Spain. The Costa del Sol and the Balearic Islands receive visitors on a regular basis and on a very large scale. Then there are the cities like Barcelona which have become European models linking the traditional with the contemporary. Spain’s cities are popular with visitors as well for their history and their culture. A city such as Cordoba for example, located in southern Andalusia, is a jewel of cultural heritage. Its history includes the Romans, Visigoths, Moslems and finally, the Christians, and there is a wealth of vestiges of all these civilizations still present, the most important being the cathedral and the ancient mosque, a major architectural Moslem monument. The cathedral and the historical center of the city have been classified as world heritages by UNESCO, thus demonstrating the inestimable value of these sites which have remained intact for centuries.
The Hospes Palacio del Bailio is the only five-star hotel in the historical quarter of the city. The main building was built between the 16th and 17th centuries, although there are also the remains of an ancient Roman house on the property. The hotel, renovated with great attention to detail, possesses a subtle blend of contemporary design and a reminder of its past. The hotel consists of several buildings around five patios, which are all magnificent, although the most impressive by far is the main patio, where a transparent floor offering a magnificent view of the Roman ruins replaced the traditional cobblestones. The frescoes and paintings of the period were all impeccably restored, down to the slightest detail. Clear and pure lines run through the hotel from one end to another. History and modernity blend together perfectly, and the guest is drawn into a world of peace and serenity in an absolutely authentic Andalusian atmosphere. The hotel is a combination of culture, art, well being, gastronomy and relaxation, a truly exceptional site that leaves no one indifferent. Thanks to its gastronomic restaurant, spa and outdoor swimming pool, seekers of luxury will be more than satisfied with this haven of peace and luxurious oasis in the heart of an historic center filled with architectural wonders, to which one can add the magical and completely unique Palacio del Bailio.
The Palacio was originally one of the largest properties in the Cordoba region. In 1982, it was proclaimed a Heritage of Cultural Interest.
