A great little museum in a stone tower on the other side of the bridge near the Mezquita. It has a series of exhibitions, models and dioramas dedicated to aspects of Cordoba history and contribution to many aspects of life as we know it today. In particular, it showcases a time where the three great theologies Islam, Judaism and Christianity lived in harmony and philosophy science, technology and culture flourished. Cordoba became one of the great centres of Europe. Apparently, one of the Pope's got a bit cheesed off and was getting worried that this might just be a little too successful and diminish the power and authority of Rome, so he took out the Christian King. Models and explanations of the Mezquita and Alhambra amongst other displays on medicine, astrology and the all important science of irrigation. A really terrific experience and I wish I knew the insight to come here first and if you are reading this while planning your holiday, my tip, go to Cordoba first before Granada, Malaga or Sevilla.
