Beware the heat! Cordoba has the hottest average high temperatures in all of Europe. That fact sounds nice when you’re planning your holidays but if you are not used to the heat, it can cause serious damage.
Be prepared! Use sun cream and re-apply it throughout the day. Loose fitting clothes that cover you will keep you cooler than short-shorts and a t-shirt; look at what the locals wear, they know best. Keep hydrated! (No, alcohol doesn’t count.) Have a water bottle on your person and keep refilling it.
Sun stroke can ruin your day and a hefty enough sun burn can warrant a hospital trip.
