Built between the 16th and 18th centuries, this traditional Andalusian agrarian estate, now in the historical heart of Cordoba, has been meticulously restored and finely balanced with contemporary design.
Guests move among original detailing such as wrought-iron railings, cool terracotta tiles, Moorish embellishments and a lavishly painted ceiling – all artfully enhanced with understated modern touches. Rich fabrics and textures in champagne and copper are offset by dark walnut and light polished marble floors throughout. Solid slabs of black local stone lure guests to the lush, flowery gardens outside, the perfect place to linger over a drink.
The estate is composed of several buildings – the palace itself, designated a "place of cultural interest", along with its coach houses, stables and granaries – ranged around a mosaic of five patios. In the spectacular main patio, traditional paving has been replaced with a dramatic glass floor to reveal Roman ruins four and a half metres below.
Restoring paintings and frescos from the 19th century is a further example of the care and attention given to the revitalisation of past beauty at the Hospes Palacio del Bailío. The clean pure lines, the sense of history and luxury all reflect the peace and quiet you will enjoy at this Andalusian getaway.
Hospes Palacio del Bailio is located at the very heart of Córdoba's historical city centre, next to the Plaza Colón, between Ramírez de las Casas Deza Street and Conde de Torres Cabrera Street. Walking distance to all the key cultural and leisure sites in town.
