We were in Cordoba for only a few hours mainly with the intention of going on a guided tour of the Mezquita Mosque/Cathedral. While we passed the Calahorra Tower on our way across the Roman bridge we didn't enter it. At this point I didn't...More

From the outside, just a tower with a view over the bridge. But it's far more than that, a fascinating and very illuminating insight into the cultural and religious history of Andalucia. Well worth an hour of anybody's time.

This place was super. I know (or knew) next to nothing about Spain and its history, so this museum was an amazing introduction for a beginner. They packed a hell of a lot of information into the place- you get audio guides in your chosen...More
