Wonderful Gardens

Impressive historic castle with excellent gardens, fountains and pools. Impressive inside but not as great as the Seville Alcazar but still a must see location.

An usually small but well preserved property. Unfortunately you do not get to see very much interior wise, but the tower and gardens particularly compensate.

Quality historic place to visit with fine gardens and pools, landscaped perfectly rich with colours and smells. Plenty of steps to climb so not for the faint hearted. Well worth a visit and worth every euro.

This visit was good but there is a lot of walking and climbing. The palace itself was only average for viewability but the gardens were great. There were very little artifacts in the palace proper but the view from the top of the tower made it all worth while. Be aware that there are so steep and narrow steps to... More

A truly beautiful place with a lot of history. Although the structure was built by several Christian kings over centuries, it brings the charming mood of Arabian Nights because of the use of Mudejar style. Absolutely a must when you are in Cordoba. Don’t miss the Inquisition Tower with its 2nd century Roman mosaics and the 3rd century Roman sarcophagus... More

Wonderful place. Very tranquil with stunning gardens. Enjoyed this as much, if not more than all the attractions in the area.

Highlights were the mosaics hung on the walls inside the Alcazar found in another part of Cordoba, the Views from up the tower/ramparts and the beautiful gardens with fountains and carp ponds! Definitely a must see in Cordoba.

It should be the castle of old kingdoms however it has really beautiful garden with many orange trees, ponds, and fountains. You could enjoy the scene of the old city upon the rooftop and the tower of the castle.

The palace of the Christian Kings...stunning gardens with fountains & Orange tree groves.. the castle takes you back to a time of the Inquistion... bath house in the basement and then climb the tower up the narrow steps to a fantastic viewing point over the city, river, the Royal stables & pools filled with koy carp... lovely way to spend...
