The museum inside the tower is a bit of a waste of time. Displays mostly consist of an odd assortment of miniature models. If you pay to go inside, it will be to get to the top of the tower. If you are used to walking up to the top of large cathedral towers, you will probably not be wowed... More

Very good audio tour and the perfect way to start a visit to Cordoba. A worthwhile introduction to the history of Islam, Christianity and Judaism in the city. The view from the tower is impressive.

The Calahorra Tower is the imposing structure at the end of the Roman Bridge in Cordoba. The Tower and Cathedral-Mosque, Bridge and River make the perfect picture

Coming from the “Puerta Del Puente, it is only a few steps to the “Puerta Romana” and a few hundred meters to reach the other side were you will find the “Torre de la Calahorre” or “Calahorre Tower”, which is a fortified gate of Islamic origin. The tower was built during the late 12th century to protect the Roman Bridge,... More

We didn't expect much from this tower, just an opportunity to take some pics and climb to the top for the view, but we ended up with much more. They call themselves a 'living museum' and by pressing a button in each room, you hear a story in your complimentary headphones. Throughout the various rooms you learn more about The... More

While a little hard on the legs the climb is broken up into 3 stages so not too bad and gives you time to look out over the Cathedral and surrounding areas as far as the river and beyond. a must for anyone with a camera!

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...
