Is Córdoba Bus Station near the train station?

I checked out how close Córdoba bus station and the train station are to each other.  The bus station is right next to the Córdoba train station and in the picture above it’s on the right.  You can just see a corner  of Córdoba train station on the left.

This is the address of Cordoba bus station:
Estacion Central de Autobuses de Córdoba
Glorieta de las Tres Culturas s/n
14011 Córdoba

Tel: +34 957404383

My suggestion is that instead of trying to find the address above it’s much easier to head for the train station and walk through it or around to the bus station

Does  the bus station have luggage storage facilities?

It certainly does have a left  luggage storage department which costs €4.00 a day.   Do remember take everything that you’ll need with you for a day’s visit.  If you need to open the your storage locker again to get your sunglasses out, it´ll cost you another €4.00!

Córdoba bus station has all the amenities of a modern Spanish bus station including a cash point next to the entrance and right next to it is a set of public telephones which look to be in good order.

Opposite the souvenir shop is an open air buffet style coffee bar, ideal for a snack in between bus  journeys. The seats on the concourse are comfortable and clean.

How can  I get visit the Mezquita in Córdoba Old Town from the bus station?

The local buses depart from the local bus stops which are between the bus station and the Córdoba train station. You can see them in the picture above.

I tested out the bus station information desk by asking which local bus I needed to take me  to the Mezquita  (Córdoba’s Mosque) It’s the Nº 3  bus and took me right down to San Fernándo which is the nearest point to the Mezquita Catedrál almost down by the Guadalquivir River).  I paid the driver on the bus and the ticket cost less than €1.50

How long does the bus from Córdoba to Seville take?

Check through on the Gomarbella bus routes timetable and you’ll see it takes between 1 hour 45 minutes and 2 hours depending on the time you travel.  You can travel onwards almost anywhere by bus from  from Córdoba.

It’s a big bus station with 26 long distance bus bays arranged in a circle on the far side.  It’s functional and does not have the same charm of the Prado de San Sebastian in Seville but is ideally situated for connections with train station and within very easy reach of the Cordoba city centre.


  1. Hello Dee Bee, Thank you for writing in. I've just tried to phone the bus station in Córdoba on + 34 957 404 040. Like every other bus station in Spain the phone is almost permanently engaged.
    I was in Córdoba last week for three days and it was very hot. Around 39º Celsius during the day. It made the Costa del Sol at 32º feel really fresh when we got home.

    When will you be travelling? Just to know by when you will need the information. Best wishes from Marbella, Mike

  2. Hi, thank you for writing in and my apologies for being able to reply sooner. I guess you are coming in to Cordoba by train or bus. It will take you about 35 minutes to walk from the train and bus station, down the big central avenue, across the bridge over the Guadalquivir river and then to the hostal.

    I can show you the route if you go to Google then click on Google Maps. Then click on Get Directions. Into the first box copy:

    Glorieta Tres Culturas, Córdoba

    Into the second box copy:

    Calle del Corregidor Luis de la Cerda, 79 14003 Córdoba

    Then click on Get Directions and find the Map View. It's a very straight walk but it should cost you less than €10 to take a taxi. It will be a lot quicker than trying to work out the bus system.

    Once you are at the hostal, leave the luggage and walk back over the next bridge upstream from the one you crossed, Puente Bajada del Puente and you'll come out right next to the mosque.

    I'm actually going to be in Cordoba this weekend, staying Friday night, we go twice a year at least and while my wife is in meetings I do the tourist bit. I know that area near your hostal very well because we sometimes eat at the restaurants between the two bridges. Cordoba is a really interesting city and you'll have fun there. It gets very cold too!

    Please let me know if I can check out anything for you while I'm there. Apologies again for not replying sooner and best wishes from Marbella Mike

  3. Dear Mike

    thanks very much for the info. I only saw your comment now. In the end I took a train, and changed to the bus in Marbella. The train was super fast, only 48 minutes! Highly recommended.

    best wishes

  4. Hi Brian, thank you for your kind words. There is one direct bus service every day, leaving Cordoba at 08.30 and getting to Marbella at 13.00 just in time for a cold beer or two. You can check this timetable or even book online here:
    Alternatively, if this departure time is a little early, using the same site you can book through from Cordoba to Malaga bus station, there are four services a day. You can check the timetable by entering CORDOBA then MALAGA.

    At Malaga bus station, buy your ticket at the ticket office through to Marbella. There are two buses to Marbella nearly every hour so you won't have to wait around long at Malaga bus station for your connecting bus.

    I hope that helps you Brian, feel free to write back if you have any doubts. Enjoy Cordoba and have a great visit to Marbella.

    Best wishes Mike
