Casa Árabe’s headquarters in Cordoba will be hosting new guided tours for those who would like to visit every hidden corner of the building known as the “Casa Mudejar.” The first tour will be given on Friday, May 20. SOLD OUT!

These tours provide the opportunity to get a first-hand view of mixture of remains from the thirteenth century, along with features from the Mudéjar, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras,all in a unique space that reflects admixture, diversity, multiculturalism and cultural encounters in the city of Cordoba.

The Casa Mudéjar building consists of a set of five different houses linked together by corridors, passageways and stairwells, with four courtyards and a turret. The original building dates back to the fourteenth century, though most of the current structures are from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It is located within the southern part of Cordoba’s Historical Center near the Mosque-Cathedral, within the area declared to be a World Heritage Site. The building’s ancient structure and layout remain intact, providing an important example of domestic manorial architecture that is purely Mudéjar in style. Formerly the dwellings of important families from Cordoba like the Venegas and the Córdobas, it still maintains a large number of its original architectural features despite the different uses given to the building across time: a palace, a home, the site of Cordoba’s Archeology Museum from 1923 to 1959, an ethnology museum planned in the eighties, and administrative and cultural offices in the nineties. Most notable are its fifteenth-century mural paintings, two-thirds of which are attributed to the painter Pedro Romana, and one of the finest examples of the scarce Mudéjar painting that has been left behind and found in the city. It is a recent finding which dates back to 1928, a time when the house was being prepared to house the Archeological Museum of Cordoba.

The State’s Directorate General of Heritage ceded the historical building to Casa Árabe for use as its Cordoba headquarters, and the refurbishment and adaptation work on Casa Mudéjar to become Casa Árabe’s headquarters, directed by the Municipal Government of Cordoba itself, was awarded the first World Heritage City Award in 2011, bestowed by Spain’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
