The Museum of Al-Andalus Life is located in the Tower. We did not plan on going to this but it looked inviting. The audio guide was incredibly dry and had way too much music on it-but once I figured out the fast forward if was fine. The main hall on the right has 4 essential figures in the early years...

You can see at the glance, that most of the tower is rebuild or renovated, but still it is impressive and interesting monument of Moors era. Didn’t visit museum inside the tower.

The museum is in an old tower and it's not big. The location is special because you get a great view of the Roman bridge and the mezquita from the roof of the tower. Inside the museum there is a display explaining how the irrigation system worked in Roman times. Very impressive and the most interesting item in the museum... More

Came away enlightened about a different slice of history. Not my favorite way to experience history, but it tells a story that few other places tell, with contributions from Jewish, Muslim and Christian culture all at the same place. I wish more people took the time to visit and see the world in a new way.

The Tower hosts an impressive museum with interesting displays in many of the rooms. Unfortunately, the texts are very long and the way to listen to them is not that user friendly. I would have liked to buy a book with the texts, rather than listen to them (unfortunately, such book is not available)

You need to walk 10 min over an un-sheltered bridge under the sun to reach the tower. But the pain paid off when you get there and walk up. The exhibitions are interesting. The views back towards the old city and the river are beautiful.

This is Cordoba; a must see. Pass the Romian Bridge and then the Calahorra Tower. It is so beautiful. Enter the tower and enjoy the views. You will love it.

The exterior is the true gem. However the tour inside ( they give you earphones to tell history and explanations ) was good. Cool stories but that's it really nothing much to see and they hype more on Alahambra model lol

Reasonably priced museum. Headphones with commentary to guide you through the ages of religion in harmony. Plus a fantastic models of the 2 most visited buildings in Andalusia. And interesting models of ancient lifestyles

while it may since kind of boring at first, there is a ton of historical information provided. it is a must to go to the top of the tower to see the view of the new city from one side and the bridge and cathedral from the other
