Learn about the culinary customs of the 18th century with this Mercado Norte and The Marquis of Sobremonte's House Tour. You'll also enjoy a tasting of local products.
Mercado Norte and The Marquis of Sobremonte Museum Tour
At the time of your choice, we'll meet at your hotel in the centre of Cordoba and walk to the Marqués de Sobremonte Provincial Historical Museum. This 18th century colonial house is the oldest house in Cordoba, an architectural jewel!
We'll visit the kitchen of the house, and talk to you about the culinary customs of the colonial period. We'll also explain the most popular recipes of that period, in which traditional Spanish dishes were fused with local specialities, and we're sure that more than one recipe will surprise you as it is very fashionable nowadays!
After visiting the museum, we'll take a walk to the popular Mercado Norte to visit its different stalls. Here we'll find out a number of interesting facts about the province's gastronomy, which has many references to the colonial era.
As we'll see, Cordoba's cuisine has fused with other international recipes due to immigration. This cultural crossbreeding has been very enriching on a culinary level, as the fusion has given rise to new recipes that combine different ingredients from both colonial cuisine and avant-garde gastronomy.
We'll conclude this 3 hour tour of Cordoba by enjoying a tasting of products in the Mercado Norte. We'll taste different types of cheeses, sausages and wines, as well as several Arab specialities that will leave you with an unbeatable taste in your mouth.
We'll start this tour of Cordoba from your hotel in the city centre. However, if you're staying in more remote areas, you should go directly to the Marqués de Sobremonte Provincial Historical Museum. The guide will be at the indicated time at the main entrance of the museum, located at the intersection of Rosario Santa Fe and Ituzaingó streets.
