Spend an hour or so in here to rest in a beautiful garden. We took some food in and had a quiet meal before heading back into the streets.

My wife and I were reminiscing about our trip to Andaluscia which was just last month and could hardly recall this site. We had to look at our pictures to recall our visit. But had not problems recalling most of the ones in Sevilla and Granada.

The Alcazar of Cordoba has a very nice garden and is a nice place to go for a walk. Not much to see inside, but the towers and the garden are nice places for photos.

I have not visited an Alcazar I did not like. There's something about the gardens that calm me. Very near the Mezquita, a must-see when you are in Cordoba. Smaller and more manageable than the one in Seville but no less beautiful. Interesting backstory to its former occupants. Llives as tangled as a Game of Thrones plot.

Roman floors, Roman columns, Visigoth as well apparently. Moorish gardens and baths. Home of the inquisition, not so lovely but historically important

Building has a very chequered history. Not as impressive as the nearby cathedral but worth a visit. Superb gardens.

We came here at the end of the day and it was relaxing to be able to sit in the gardens with the fountains creating a great background sound. The crowds were not to bad at the end of the day, it was a great way to end a busy day where we had battled the crowds. Worth spending an... More
