This contains what is described as a museum of life in Al-Andalus. The audio-guide is rambling, pretentious and much too long for the limited content in each of the rooms. Displays range from unconvincing life size replicas of key figures such as Maimonides and Averroes emerging from the gloom, dusty scale models of the Alhambra and the Mezquita and at... More

The museum of the three cultures inside the tower is well done. It talks about the time when Muslims, Christians and Jews prospered together in Cordoba.

We were very pleasantly surprised . Instructive, well maintained and right at the foot of the Roman bridge. The audio guide is sensational. This visit brings the magic of Cordoba to your heart and mind.

The most important -- and fascinating -- part of Cordoba's story is the coexistence of Jewish, Christian and Moslem communities during hundreds of years of the Middle Ages. Inside this Moorish tower (which also offers a great view over the historic city and river, by the way) is a museum that uses clever audio and visual elements to tell this... More

Nice tower, however, it is surrounded by so much more interesting landmarks that it wont get a look in. Sorry Calahorra but its true. That said it adds to the extended built environment and is worth crossing the bridge to visit nevertheless.

The visit of this attraction gave us way more than we expected. The view from the top is charming, we've been also very lucky since happened to arrived on the top of the tower around sunset time (I would suggest to plan the visit around that time then!). But is is not just about a nice view. Inside, across all... More

Inside Calahorra Tower , you see Museo Vivo del Al -Andaluz . An unexpected treasure with audio visual facsilities to explain every part . It takes you to another era where life was so peaceful and all cultures lived in harmony and peace alongside . Beautiful precious carpets are there as well . Really enjoyed discovering this treasure .

You get a headset and handset to walk through the tower, which is meant to sync what happens with the commentary. Skip what the 4 in room 2 have to say unless very interested in the times, and instead see the fabulous models the building has.
