This is a fabulous attraction. Great planting and water features. Allow about 2.5 hours to take in everything. Great views from the Towers.

This is an absolute must-do in Cordoba. Such a beautiful garden amid the ancient walls of this great castle. Climbing the walls, and into the towers to get those great views across the beautiful gardens was definitely worthwhile.

The Alcazar was small by standards but it housed intricate mosaics and the surrounding gardens were stunning and tranquil. A lovely way to spend an hour or two Cordoba.

An interesting castle but of particular note to us were the quite stunning gardens which it was a pleasure to dawdle around.

Massive building you can visit for only a few Euros, go up in the towers of the built-in church but the highlight is the very nice gardens surrounding. Very well maintained grounds!

Quiet when we arrived first thing. Loved the mosaics, and the pretty gardens. Really delightful spot, highly recommend. Suggest go early before the coach tour groups get there.
