It's just a plaza, nothing special. It's small and near the main attractions of Cordoba.It's a kind of a central patio of different houses.

It's free so why don't enter. You find some interesting facts about the house and flamenco in different rooms.

Easy to find, the plaza contains some interesting architecture and also access to the Museo de Bellas Artes, which is worth a visit. Not a bad place to sit down and have a beer or coffee.

This small plaza is an historic spot in Cordoba's city, one the location of horse and cattle markets. It's a cool, peaceful stopping place on a city walk and there are several restaurants on the lane between it and the river for a drink, tapas, lunch or dinner.

We stayed in a wonderful Airbnb right on this plaza and we were very happy. It was mostly quiet other than A few tourist groups walking by, but there are some really beautiful fountains and statues here. Nice place to relax and if your feet in the water or let your dog have a drink when you're walking him. It's... More

It is worth wandering in from the Plaza del Potro to this old building with a long and narrow courtyard. It will teach you more than you ever wanted to know about Flamenco and its history with creative and colorful exhibits. Free!

Having passed a packed Plaza del Potro the night before, we were very surprized to find this delightful museum during the daytime when not much was going on. It's an introduction to flamenco and its history. Interesting personal recollections of Fosforito. Nice holographic demonstration of guitar construction. Try out your own rhythmic tallent. It's free, though who knows for how... More

We stumbled on del Potro and liked the statue and adjacent church. It also has a few reasonable quality restaurants at the river end
