Worth The Walk

Take the walk across the bridge to the tower. An insight into the Islamic history and if you are bold enough the walk up the tower and the views are worth it.

With a blue sky behind it there is nothing more impressive than a well preserved piece of history. The museum inside is not well advertised and therefore does not draw people inside.

Right across the river from the old town- this small well-maintained tower presented some very interesting and atmospheric information about the towns ancient Islamic past. The only spoiler was the English audit guide which used a terrible 1940s BBC accent! Cheap entry. Three stories - stairs only. No food or toilets.

Build for controlling entrance to city cordoba, on the old roman bridge. It has a very nice appearance from a little bit far from building. Not inavitable, but if you have time go inside and learn about life in 14. Century.

Boring audio tour with a view that's no better than the one you get on the bridge. Banal, trite, and a waste of time. So many better things to do in Córdoba.

This 14th Century tower is a scenic view-point at far end of Cordoba's Roman Bridge. Inside, it contains an informative 'journey' through Andalusian cultural history & culture, focused on overlapping Jewish, Moslem & Christian contributions in science, music and architecture. Good for 'history buffs'.

Its a very nice museum. it was 5.00 Euros and the audioguide is included. You can learn a lot abot the old Córdoba listening and looking miniatures, statues, instruments from the city etc. On the top of roof theres a nice view from Córdoba too. I recomend as a small and great museum

There 3 small rooms to visit by audio tour (which is included in the €2,50 entrance). The displays are rather old fashioned and the info not interesting. Definately would not recommend anyone to go here.

At one of the Roman Bridge, the Calahorra Tower of Cordoba now houses the Museum of Al-Andalus. The tower was started in the 12th century as a guarding post at the entrance of Cordoba. Inside this Tower, there are 8 levels of exhibits. Some of them, I find rather boring. However there are good ones as well. What is rare... More
