Home    I’m Erasmus in Córdoba. How can I get to my faculty and other sites of interest?

It doesn´t matter if you’ve been living in Córdoba as Erasmus for a while by now or if you just arrived, because this post may result very useful in both cases. Surely that you did ask yourself many times how to get to some place in the city and you didn´t find out the best way.

Below, there is a list of the most important or interesting places in Córdoba for a Erasmus and how to get to these:

UNIVERSITY

41566514 - blonde female student waiting for the bus

FACULTY OF PHILOSOPHY AND LETTERS (Plaza del Cardenal Salazar, 3)

The best way to get to this Faculty is by foot because is placed in the middle of the Jewish Quarter and the streets are too narrow for buses. If you are living in Ciudad Jardín or in the center of the city, which are the areas where most Erasmus students use to live, it won´t take too long. But if you live further and don´t have any other choice than using the bus, you can get off at the bus stops called “Glorieta de la Cruz Roja” or “Glorieta de la Media Luna”, depending on the direction of the road and on the part of the city from which you are coming). The bus lines that stop here are the  2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9 and the 12.

FACULTY OF LAW (Puerta Nueva s/n)

If you are living at the city center, the best option is to walk there (it won´t take you more than 20 minutes, depending on the area of the city where you are living). But if you are of the Erasmus who live in Ciudad Jardín, you can get on the bus 7, that stops in Plaza Costasol and get off at the stop called “Campo Madre de Dios”.  For the way back, get on the same bus at the stop called “Virgen Milagrosa 2º D.C.”

FACULTY OF LABOUR SCIENCES AND TOURISM (C/ Adarve 30)

To get to this Faculty, placed at the center of Córdoba, you can get on the bus number 7 in Costasol Square, in Ciudad Jardín, get off at the bus stop called “Ronda de los Tejares (C/ Caño)” and walk 5 minutes through Colón Square.

FACULTY OF EDUCATION SCIENCES (Avda. San Alberto Magno, s/n)

If you are living at the center of Córdoba you can get on the bus number 2 at the bus stop called “Colón Norte”, “Ronda de los Tejares (12 de octubre)” or “Ronda de los Tejares (Gran Capitán)”.  You can also use the line number 5, getting on the bus at the stops “Gran Capitán” or “Ronda de los Tejares (Gran Capitán)”.  For those Erasmus living at Ciudad Jardín and who don’t want to walk, the bus number 5 stops at “Avenida del Aeropuerto 1”. You can get off at the last bus stop: “Hospital Reina Sofía” and walk around 5 minutes to the Faculty.

FACULTY OF MEDICINE AND NURSING (Avda. Ménendez Pidal s/n)

You can get on the buses number 2 or 5 at the same bus stops that we have explained before to go to the Faculty of Education Sciences and get off at the bus stop “Colegios Mayores D.R. Sofía”. For the way back, get on the bus on the bus stop that is at the other side of the street “Colegios Mayores”.

RABANALES CAMPUS

You have to get on the bus E or the “Servicio Rabanales” bus and get off at the bus stop called “Campus Rabanales”. You can also take the train to Rabanales, that is a faster and much more comfortable alternative.

GO SHOPPING

You can take the bus number 7 at Costasol Square (if you are living in Ciudad Jardín) or at “Ronda de los Tejares (Bulevar G. Capitán)” if you live in the center of Córdoba and go off at the bus stop called “Cuesta de la Pólvora”.  To go back, you can take the bus number 3 at the bus stop called “Campo Madre de Dios (Agustín Moreno)” and go off at Paseo de la Victoria.

DECATHLON

To get there, the only possibility is to take the bus number 01 (Caution: don’t get confused with the bus line 1!). You can take it at the bus stop “Paseo Victoria (Puerta Gallegos)”, “República Argentina” or at “Medina Azahara 2” and go off at “Parque Logístico”. Ask to the driver and he will tell you once you get to the bus stop, although probably you will see Decathlon easily. For the way back, take the bus 02 at the bus stop called “Parque Logístico D.C.” and get off in Medina Azahara or in Paseo de la Victoria.

You can check the schedules and routes for the bus lines 01 and 02 here.

LEISURE TIME
