A delightful andalusian-style garden, and excellent views of the city from the upper walls. From the tower, you can look over into the Royal Stables (Caballerias Reales) and see the horses practising their movements.

Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos is the palace where the kings came to stay when they visited Cordoba. The grounds make for a pleasant stroll.

Loved the gardens. They are ok but it’s not breathtaking. Don’t have high expectations. The scenery helps you relax and clear your mind.

Having already visited the Alcazar in Seville, this one in Cordoba was a huge disappointment. There is no signage and very little to see. Honestly don't bother!

The Alcazar is OK. But the gardens are beautiful and worth the price of admission. The were not in bloom when we were there and still they are magnificent.

Located in center of old town Cordoba, this beautiful medieval castle is fascinating peace of engineering. But what is most stunning are the gardens. So well preserved and cultivated, this gardens are so peaceful to lay on the bench and rest your mind.

There was no queue when we were there in the morning. I saw more people in the afternoon, but nothing compare to Seville. I don't think you need to pre book.
