  • Yes, theres a few nice prayer mats on display, but its all a bit pointless. The audio guide is dreadful and theres a model of the Mesquite all lit up...but you've got the real thing to visit just acro...  more »
  • This all beautifully preserved contains a magnificent Museum. The visit takes an hour and allows you to understand a little better the history of Andalusia and tolerance from the 3 major religions.

  • Across the Roman bridge tour bus parked on the other side of the Guadalquivir River into the Mediterranean Sea through the streets of Seville from Cordoba to the tower Torre de la Calahorra in Calahorra, will go to Cordoba. In the Tower of the Islamic Museum, and goes up to the top of the tower you can. View all right.

  • Such an interesting museum. Only audio narrative available, no signage, but the narration, is synced with light changes in and on the dioramas and models. Fascinating details and aspects not often included in the bigger museums. Exceptionally helpful staff.
  • One of the best places in Córdoba to understand some of the thoughts of previous times. In addition, the building itself it's a magical place with great view of the Mosque.
  • Entry fee €4.50 also given pre audio device with pre loaded documentary through out the visit. Very informative.
  • Small musuem with good description of Islamic culture here in Cordoba. They only take cash for tickets. Visit this area before and after sunset to take pictures of the city. People there are friendly and supportive
  • a place with a magnificent view. It even become more marvelous during sunset. There are also a lot of interesting street performer. Really great to enjoy with your couple. However, the place become more crowded as the sunset approach.But sadly, We came there in the evening, so the place is already closed.
