If you’re visiting Seville for an extended period of time, and want to explore more of Andalusia, I would highly recommend Cordoba.

Cordoba is famous for the Mezquita-Catedral, a Cathedral that was built along/inside a former Mosque and one of the most beautiful structures I have ever seen in my life.

Despite being a lot smaller than other cities in the south of Spain (for resample Malaga and Granada), its historical significance and traditional feel more then makes up for it.

Seville to Cordoba is easily close enough to travel and visit in just one day, and here we look at some of the best options.

Seville to Cordoba Train

Travelling from Seville to Cordoba by train is by far the most easy and convenient way to travel. If you catch the right train it can take as little as 45 minutes, giving you plenty of time to explore historic Cordoba.

For ticket purchases, you can either buy them at the station or pre-book them online, which is advisable to secure a seat.

Unlike other European countries, once all seats are sold, they no longer let people travel – there is no standing space allowed on Spanish trains.

Trains depart from the Seville-Santa Justa railway station, and there are several direct trains available daily. These trains arrive at Cordoba’s main station (Cordoba Central) which is central to everything going on in Cordoba, and walkable to the majority of tourist hotels, restaurants, and attractions.

Note: There are two types of train that travel Seville to Cordoba, the older style train, and the new high speed models. The high speed trains save almost 40 mins in travel time but tickets cost more money.

Bus from Seville to Cordoba

Opting for a bus from Seville to Cordoba is a good choice if you’re looking to save money and don’t mind sacrificing the comfortability of the train.

This journey on a bus usually takes around 1.5 hours, although this can change based on the exact route and any traffic. I’ve found buses to be a lot less reliable than trains in Spain, with slightly more delays and often inaccurate journey times.

You can secure your tickets either online or directly at the bus station; however, an early booking is recommended to guarantee a seat, especially during the summer months and weekends.
