I didn't get what I totally expected here. I would like the place to be more about the everyday life in the mixture of those three cultures.

The tower sits at one end of the Roman bridge and it has an interesting shape and sights of the historic city centre. It's worth a quick look but didn't set our world on fire.

You need maximum one hour to visit this lovely museum. It is basically a brief audio-tour that highlights the thoughts of the progressive minds that lived around here centuries ago. There are also model scales of the Alhambra and the mosque you have literally across the bridge (these also have worthy audio-expansions). The view of Córdoba from upstairs is really... More

This museum, as well as being housed in an ancient building, takes you through the long and fascinating history of Cordoba and the influence of its different cultures and religions. A good audio presentation is included in the entry fee and the museum is well laid out to take you chronologically through the city's history. It's a good cool alternative... More

A great Roman structure, well worth a look. The Roman bridge is also very impressive! Put on your list of things to see.

This tiny museum is packed full of big ideas in a small space. I followed the audioguide and spent about an hour inside. There's not a lot to see or do, you have to listen and think. I enjoyed it, but not sure kids would. The roof top view is nice.

An interesting presentation of different religions and museum-like exhibition of Córdoba history on different floors, so quite a few steps to climb.

Our visit here was mainly to see inside the tower and to get a view from the roof. To that extent it was very good. The museum content is an odd mix of exhibits, model buildings, tableaux scenes linked by an audio guide.. part of the entrance fee. It was a pleasant way to avoid the heat outside for half... More

Interesting museum housed in a substantial building. Audio guides available (the English guide narrator a tad jarring). There were not many visitors when we were there and you could travel around with ease. The view from the roof of the tower is worth the entry fee alone. Everything else is a bonus. Good to see what could be an awkward... More
