Córdoba can be reached easily by rail or road. You can get to Córdoba by road via motorways and highways (some in France and Spain have tolls) from all of the European countries.

The High Speed Train AVE links Córdoba with Spain's capital Madrid in 95 minutes. Also the TALGO train takes you comfortably (sleeper) and directly from Barcelona to Córdoba.
