Sitting at the foot of the Roman Bridge, archeologist believes that the Arabs built the Calahorra Tower. It appears that at time there were two towers.
Now, I am giving you a very interesting fact. Legend says that the Tower as we see it today is a legacy of the dispute between two brothers. Apparently in the 14th century Enrique II ordered the modifications to defend the City against the attacks from his brother Pedro or Peter I, “The Cruel.” The function of the tower was primarily defensive and although the size might make you wonder, it is a very strong tower. Think about, it has standing for many centuries.
The primary goal of the tower allowed for strong walls, small walking lanes and also room to positioned cannons and other armoire. Though this attraction is not really sought by tourist, you can visit the most popular one, The Roman Bridge and also visited the Calahorra Tower at the same time. And if you still have energy the Al-Andalus living Museum is small jewel to explore!

You should know that the Tower has different hours in the winter and summer. In the winter opens from 10:00 to 18:00 PM and in the summer they also open in the afternoons from 16:30 to 20:30. The cost is approximate 4 and half Euros.

Spend time at the Tower and then walk to one of the many restaurants in the area. You should eat some of that good Cordoba fare…it is just like the City, a beautiful combination of amazing and tasteful flavors! Happy Visit!!

This defensive tower was built in the 14th century and is at the end of Puente Romano or the Roman bridge. It houses a 10th century culture museum and also the tower has Been restored to an excellent standard. Beware it shuts at 2pm till 4pm.

The tower was originally two towers with an arched gate to defend the king against attack by his brother. Pay a visit to the museum and enjoy the scenery at the roof.

For €4 you will have an audio guide and visit 8 rooms learning a bit more about Córdoba. From the top of the tower are the best 360 degrees views of the Roman bridge, the Mezquita, the old Córdoba centre and the suburbs outside the historic centre.

The view is lovely and there are interesting exhibits featuring the Moorish history of the city. It's small, but worth the modest fee.
