Like any major Andalusian city, Córdoba is packed with shops and stalls selling souvenirs to take home as presents or with which to remind yourself of your trip. Offering everything from handmade leather goods – a Cordobese speciality – to the cured hams for which Andalusia is famous, here are the best places to head in Córdoba for high-quality souvenirs.

Jewish Quarter/Around the Mezquita-Catedral

The charming network of streets that extends to the north of Córdoba’s great Mosque-Cathedral is known as la Juderia, the old Jewish quarter, and is the best area in which to hunt for souvenirs in the city. It should be your first stop if you’re not quite sure what you’re after, as the range of handmade Arabic-style fabrics, Andalusian pottery and leather goods on offer is bound to entice you to make a purchase. As with any part of a city that’s constantly packed with tourists, there’s a lot of tat on sale around here – think figurines of flamenco dancers, poorly-made “flamenco” fans and cuddly bulls etc – but if you have a good eye you’ll find plenty that’s worth taking home.
