  • As we have small children we say visit the Alcázar x, took a guided tour and very well, thus not waiting to tail and always explain things. Then we were enjoying a little more than the gardens. Paste it to climb the towers it is very narrow and there should be someone by regulating the ascent and the descent

  • This is a stunning place to see, the building does not hold much but the gardens are stunning. We didn't queue for long to gain entrance even though it looked like a long queue. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • While in Córdoba, it can not be do this ride. Very nice gardens, linked with the history of the Catholic Kings. The entry price is reasonable for the visit. The visit lacks incorporate any guide, written or audiovisual to give some historical content, but it is worthwhile the visit also

  • A must see. The building is not elaborate, but historically significant as the place where King Fernando and Queen Isabella decided to fund Columbus's search for ocean routes, which ultimately resulted in the discovery of America. Be sure to see the room in which this was decided. Downstairs at the far end of the upper small courtyard gardens, don't miss the Royal Baths. If you take the stairs up to the tower from the walls, you will be rewarded with a great garden view as well as one into the riding school next door. Then, visit the exquisite garden complex, truly the best part of this facility. You will want to linger here. Closed Mondays. Tue-Sun opens at 8:30. Lines are not bad in September. Closes early in the hot summer. Signage only in Spanish, and limited, sadly. Toilets available in the gardens near the big open dirt yard.
  • Worth visiting but there wasn't much in there. We walked the walls and the gardens and they were nice. But there wasn't much beyond that inside the place. It's pretty cheap though and one of the 3 main attractions in cordoba.
  • It's huge, and have so many things to see, advanced ticket needed or wait in line for hours !

  • Great Museum of the Christian Kings. It is to sit for hours watching every detail of it. No doubt Cordoba has very interesting and visit beautiful places.
