  • The Torre de la Malmuerta is a huge tower, a little distant from the usual circuits, but if you can visit, I advise.

  • It is not about the Tower of Malmuerta that I will opinion but about the Bell Tower located in the Mosque of Cordoba. It is located on the Tower of Forgiveness and costs to raise 5 euros per person. From the minaret you can see wonderful views of Cordoba, with its roofs all the same, the wonderful Mosque with its built-in Cathedral. It has 6 bells, each with a very interesting story. However, go very carefully, especially when you go down, because there are areas of the stairs that are not very well lit, but I recommend that you go up to the minaret.

  • interesting construction your visits are scheduled I found it closed. It is built with stonework. It is solid to the height of the arch but from it is hollow, housing rooms from which a staircase to access the platform.
