Cordoba day trip

Has anyone ever taken a day trip to Cordoba on a Sunday? I'm wondering if most shops and such will be open/closing early that day of the week...

Cord0ba a small city full of people on Sundays, so I guess you will have no problem, if you wish to have a memorable lunch, have lunch at El Caballo Rojo, it is reasonable and food is delicious. Make a reservation just in case. =
( What do you mean by if most shops will be open, I do not know exactly about shops, but you are not going shopping are you?)

You will find closed normal shops and open those related to tourism: souvenirs, handmade articles, food products,etc. Also all restaurants and tabernas around the Jewish quarter and the Mosque, where I would point out some places: Taberna Pepe de la Judería for tapas, El Caballo Rojo and El Churrasco for a more formal meal.

I'll just echo Pedro's advice regarding Sun. shopping. In the Juderia quarter you'll find an insistent souk-like bazaar of souvenir, "trinket" shops that remain open on Sun. at least while bus tour groups and daytrippers visit the Mezquita.
An artisans' studio co op, the Arte Zoco, on Calle de los Judios, is open on Sun. 9:30-2. Meryan, the noted embossed leather shop, closes on Sun. The nicer antique shops will probably be closed too.

About dining: also highly recommend the charming Taberna Casa Pepe (up Calle de la Juderia from the Mosque, on corner of Romero) for a wonderful tapas lunch, without hordes of tourists, either in the patio or for a full meal in the pretty upstairs, which will be packed with large groups of local families. The welcome is warm and the house specialties creative, particularly their desserts-we had delicious ice cream made with olive oil, yum!
Food critics now rate El Caballo Rojo, (steps from the Mezquita on Cardenal Herrero), just slightly lower than El Churrasco (great grilled meats like pork loin, and salmorejo, a thick Cordoban gazpacho). El Churrasco is around the corner from Casa Pepe at Romero #16. The C.Rojo is famous for its revival of ancient Moorish (lamb with honey) and Sephardic dishes. Both have very prettily decorated Andalusian patios.
Tapas at Casa Pepe will run from 500 pts. a piece & up (two can lunch for about 3,000) El Churrasco and C. Rojo have good value 3 course set menus for 3,500-3,800 pts.

Enjoy your trip!

I agree that casa Pepe is also great, be aware there are different rooms , they have rooms for formal dinner and rooms for eating tapas.
We ate both on the Caballo Rojo and in El Churrasco and I disagree with the critic someone mentions, I enjoyed much more the Caballo Rojo.
