  • Tower with many years of history in which it can deepen, by recreations, projections, etc. the history of the city. There is a scale model of the mosque that allows you to know and enjoy it even a little more, the downside is that the entrance is too expensive for what they offer.

  • Nice little museum with nice view from the top. Would recommend. The only downside is that exhibits don't have explanation in English and audio guide does not cover them all
  • A very informative and inspiring museum with audio tour included that detailed the fascinating history of Cordoba. Amazing models of the Mosque in its original style and the Alhambra Palace. Low cost to enter - well worth it. My children enjoyed it as well.
  • Excelente Halal food, the choices are limited but home madre flavors.
  • Do you want to know little bit more about the history of Cordoba? Then don't skip this museum. It's not big but you get enough info to understand this city. And the view from the tower is just perfect.
  • Good audio guide tour in a small museum. Some nice views of the town from the top. Go in if you have some time to kill, skip it if your time is more limited.
