FOOD

In Cordoba, the main traditional dish is the “salmorejo”, a cold soup made with bread, tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt and vinegar. It’s very similar to the “gazpacho andaluz” (typical of southern Andalusia) but without the pepper (...and is better not to make this comment while in town).

Another typical dish is the “rabo de toro”, literally, a stew made with the tail of the bull. Also in Cordoba you will find a good selection of Jamon de Bellota, the best quality Iberian ham.
