Description. The Royal Horse Riders of Cordoba are the building of reference in managing one of the most famous races that history has had: The Andalusian Horse, our Spanish Pure Breed.
This emblematic building was created in 1570, by express mandate of King Philip II who, as a great lover of horses, wanted to create in Cordoba a new breed of horses, the Andalusian Horse - Pura Raza Español.
In order to do this, he appointed a royal stagger to the Cordovan Diego Lopez de Haro, he pointed out the pastures necessary for the grazing of the foals and the mares and ordered to build the extraordinary Royal Horse Stables, the "cathedral for horses", as the poet Federico García Lorca.
This monumental building, which is National Heritage, was vital so that the enclosure in which it is framed, next to the Mosque-Cathedral and the Judería has been considered by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.
The purpose of the place is to shelter the best stallions for 442 years uninterrupted.
It is worth mentioning the achievement achieved among its walls: the Andalusian Horse - Pura Raza Español -, which with its qualities made the city of Cordoba known worldwide as the World Center for Breeding Caballar.
It is a visitable space that complements the tourist offer of the city and that dynamizes and favors the economic development around the world of the horse, conforming it as a tourist product of quality.
