Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba Guided Tour with Priority Access Ticket

122 reviews
As one of Spain’s most visited monuments, the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba can be overwhelming for first-time visitors; so, visit in the company of a guide and experience all the highlights with ease. Plus, learn more about its architecture and history than you could if visiting independently. This tour is ideal for first-time visitors, history fans, and those with limited time in the region alike.

Molino de la Albolafia, or the Mill of Albolafia, is largely hidden by vegetation and there is little to see. It is nonetheless worth a visit for its historical interest. A mill has stood on the site since Roman Times and the current structure dates from 9th century, with some major modifications on subsequent years. Originally the structure was used for irrigation and later did it become a flour mill. The mill is a must visit for cat lovers, as the colony of feral cats which live there can be seen lounging on the wheel and in the structure itself if you view it from the road which passes it.

The water mill, tower and bridge can be easily seen by walking behind La Mezquita along the water. All three attractions are in close proximity to each other. You can see the watermill from the sidewalk above and get some pictures (can’t get too close). The only purpose it seems to serve today is a for a cat hotel. You will see them lounging on the wheel without a care in the world.

Theoretically you could get a fine view of this fabulous mill wheel as you cross the Roman Bridge. As it was, I almost missed it and was just able to make out the top arc of the wheel sticking up out of the abundant vegetation. They really could do with tidying up the riverside area, which is horribly overgrown, so that you can fully appreciate such sites.

The cats are quite amusing. And, looking at them, you can look down, and see just how silted up this river really is - far past its heyday when this was a major port town. It is really quite a large water wheel surprising intact, given the passage of time. I give it 5 stars just for kitty joy, and the serendipity of finding it when you're looking for something else. That's worth something.

Molino de la Albolafia is the remains of an old water mill built by the Moors on the banks of the river overlooking the Roman Bridge. Not much left to see.
