WHILE at first sight it may appear empty, this beautiful townhouse in the centre of Cordoba is filled with the centuries-old echoes of the city’s magnificent history.

And now, due to its owner requiring a speedy sale, it can be snapped up for only €380,000.

Just 500 metres from Cordoba’s famous mezquita (or mosque), and spitting distance to the Guadalquivir river, it is the perfect bolthole from which to explore one of Spain’s most emblematic cities.

The four-storey townhouse on Calle San Fernando sits next to Plaza del Potro, where Spain’s most venerated writer Miguel de Cervantes once lived.

The plaza and fountain are mentioned in his legendary book Don Quixote, while the statue of a horse is a must visit for any tourist to the city.

Around the corner look out for Plaza de la Corredera, which once held bullfights for Spain’s kings as well as trials of faith during the inquisition.

And then for a breath of fresh air head downhill towards the river to see the celebrated Roman bridge, known around the world.

The historic townhouse is well appointed and has six bedrooms, including two bathrooms, one ensuite.

There is a kitchen and two sitting rooms, plus plenty of scope to develop the property to one’s individual tastes.

And best of all there is a floor at the top that has not been developed at all, with its own decent sized roof terrace.

“It’s an amazing house that has been in my family for years,” said owner Francisco, the chef and owner of restaurant L’impronta, in San Pedro de Alcantara.

“It is so central and you literally do not need a car while you are there. You can walk everywhere to all the main sites.

“I am sad to be selling it but now I am based on the Costa del Sol we don’t need it anymore, and a lot of my family still live in Cordoba so I have plenty of other places to stay.”

He continued: “It will make an amazing escape for someone on the coast or a great holiday home for someone abroad. It would certainly make some good rental income.”
