This garden is one of the hidden gems of Cordoba that is a great place to go when you want a relaxing day or if you need to hide from the sun. The gardens are laid out quite well and provide a lot of sitting areas for those who need them. There is also a statue commemorating Christopher Columbus' voyage... More

If you're in Córdoba,make time to visit Alcazar,at day light it's a beautiful place with a romantic garden where you can rest in shadow for a while. A must is the night vist, there are combined tickets,the tour is about 1hour long and there are 2 every night,from 10 and 11 pm. You can see all the fountains in the... More

Cordoba is a charming city, all places are extremely beautiful. It has a rich history where different cultures were changing one after another (between Jewish, Roman, Arab and Spanish- Catholic). This definitely left a mark on the city. But Alcazar was one of my favorite places here. It has a beautiful garden they you can just come and enjoy.

Nice place to spend a hour or a bit more. The Alcazar building is relatively new due to reconstructions. The garden is very well done. Note: on Saturdays only open in the afternoon (from 15:30); our rough guide says its only open in the morning.

The Alcázar itself is average, but the gardens alone make this worth it. Absolutely stunning pools and gardens. Romantic for sure!

The Alcazar is pretty much what you would think a medieval castle should look like, with towers fountains and courtyards. The Alcazar was smaller than we expected and family easy to cover in about 30 minutes, but is a fun experience nevertheless. The towers are the best part with a great view of all of Cordoba. Remember to bring plenty... More

Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos is place to visit in Cordoba. Gardens and fountains are great and you have to have a perfect quide, as we had, to lead you through history of this fantastic place.

This is quite close to tho mezquita and you pay the alcazar a visit The building itself is not extremely appealing / interesting but the gardens are peaceful and offer a nice break from the heat of the city

Our first visit was at night for the light & water show. This started with a sound and visual display of some key historic points - accessible in any language. It progressed to the garden/pool area for a variety of beautiful fountain displays, coordinated to light and music. A full moon topped it off! The next day, we say the... More
