It's a lovely palace but the best part of it... the gardens with the lovely fountains. it's not a very big palace but you will need some time if you want to enjoy it. Don't miss the tower, the stairs are close to the entrance!

Nothing much in it except a nice garden. Inside the building there are just empty corridors. There is a simple church upstairs and a few paintings.

We visited the gardens in the daytime (quite hot). I strongly recommend that your purchase the ticket that allows you back in in the evening to see the light show. The gardens and show are beautiful. The weather cools off in the evening and makes the experience an enjoyable one. Worth seeing.

The gardens of this royal palace are the only good reason to visit the complex and to pay the fee: they are simply beautiful. The rest of the place is not really worth of mention

Another one, amongst the 1001 things you need to see in Cordoba (and further down the road you can find and equestrian show you can attend the same night. Again, if you love history and that feeling that a guard dressed in armour might suddendly pop out from around the corner, then visit this gem. On the inside a few... More

Interesting site with Ruins and you can climb up to the watchtower at the top with your entrance fee to get a great view of the Cathedral and the city. Don't miss the gardens and fountains in the back - just beautiful! It was very hot so we appreciated a rest in the shade there.

Lovely gardens, and much less crowded than other gardens such as the Generalife. There's space and time to sit here and truly enjoy the ambience.

The gardens at this palace are unlike any I have ever seen, and as nice as those at the Alahambra in Granada. So beautiful in June when we visited, everything either newly planted or in bloom. Fountains were also beautiful. Step inside the palace on the left up the few stairs for a guidebook (3 euros) so you will know... More

Sadly the audioguide in English were not available when we got there, so the visit to the building was not so great. The descriptions are all in Spanish. Bit the gardens are really the highlight! Definitely worth a visit!

The castle in itself is not that great and can be visited pretty quickly, but consider three things : It costs around 5 euros, you have access to the tower (which is not very high, but high enough to have a decent view of the mosque), and the gardens are stunning. You won't be disappointed. Unfortunately, we had to go... More
