Where is Córdoba Train Station

Córdoba’s train station is located in the heart of the city, not far away from the historic center. The official address is: Gta. Tres Culturas, s/n, 14011 Córdoba

How to Get to Córdoba Train Station

If you’re staying somewhere in the old town, your best bet is to take a taxi to the train station.

There is a small taxi rank right next to the Mosque-Cathedral, but you can also ask your hotel to call you one or get one from a bigger road near you.

For most places, it will be too far to walk there. For example, walking from the train station to the Mosque will take about 30 minutes. Keep in mind that the streets in the Jewish Quarter are mostly uneven pavements with cobblestones, so not easy to navigate with luggage towed behind you.

I took a taxi from our place near the Mosque and paid under 10 euros for the drive.
