A Cultural Heritage Monument built in the sixteenth century, this former palace is nestled in the heart of Cordoba's historical district. The grounds feature ancient Roman ruins, including baths that have been incorporated into the Bodyna Spa. Restored granaries, coach houses and courtyard gardens — fragrant with jasmine and orange trees — will make guests feel as if they have traveled back in time. The rooms and suites, on the other hand, are a blend of past and present, done in a unique minimalist style with century-old frescoes, velvet and leather design details and the thoughtful incorporation of original architectural elements. For sampling local flavors, the hotel has a classic fine dining restaurant and a sexy tapas bar.
