More detail than some may like...

But, we enjoyed the reminder that multi-cultures (Judeo/Christian/Muslim) have and can co-exist. Lovely exhibit -- wonderful exhibits.

The view from the tower is impressive but the interpretation within the tower is poor - it claims to explain the coexistence of 3 cultures in Cordoba but it is longwinded - the English speaker of the audio system has the most strangled affected spoken English more appropriate to circa 1920 and the actual content is historically dubious. All exhibits... More

Slightly disappointed by the attraction although it was only a few euro to get in. Audio guides were available as part of the entry fee but the descriptions tended to be a bit wordy and the highly plumby accent of the English translation was off putting. The views from the top were worth the entry fee

On a very hot day it was great to be able to quietly walk around the museum within the tower and listen to the fascinating history and stories of local culture of the city. An interesting audio guide let's you enjoy the exhibits at your leisure. The air con is pleasant to. Go to the top and see views of... More

Located at the far end of the Roman Bridge, this former defensive tower has been converted into a museum of life in the early middle ages when Cordoba was known as a city of peaceful co-existence between the three great religions. The headsets provide a good English description of the exhibits (all written signage is in Spanish). Views from the... More

This is the tower at the end of the Roman bridge, and is equally restored and presented as the main bridge. Lovely for closeup photos of a 'castle', and you should come back at night also, as its lit up nicely. There is a museum inside the tower, that you have to pay for.

Interesting museum but very ill-fitting headsets which were uncomfortable to wear! Also, beware of loose planks at the top of the tower. Slightly dangerous!

Interesting Museum exploring the period in Cordoban history when Muslims, Jews and Christians co existed. You need the audio guide. It is part of the experience. Sadly one room has no audio guide and the explanations are in Spanish. Some rooms had the audio just playing. Others had a number to key into your device so it was a bit... More
