In my opinion, this is one of the best tourist activities in Cordoba. The building itself is not necessarily very impressive although it is nice that you can enter the tower to have a nice view over the gardens. The gardens are the main highlight...More

This is one of the best places to visit in Cordoba. The gardens are so beautiful and peaceful. The entrance is 5 euros per adult and they only accept cash.

Alcazar by itself is quite small, but the gardens are really enjoyable and you can spend some time walking along the pools and fountains

Another of the must do's in Cordoba . Only 5 euros to get in and another building with an amazing history. The main building is very old 13th century hence full of interesting rooms and winding stone staircases with low ceilings. I imagine it can...More

This was a highlight of our trip, the gardens are gorgeous and the views worth climbing to the top if the tower for. Unmissable

While the inside was nothing special the gardens certainly were. From the fountains to the orange trees just beautiful shame there wasn't a little cafe to sit and soak the view in

Barely worth the low ticket price. Just not a lot to see. The gardens are nice, but not spectacular. If you’re short of time, skip it and spend your time in the Meskita mosque cum church.

We visited this place on Sunday around 1:30pm, mind you, there's an entrance fee for tourists. The place itself was like gem and worth visiting. It was bigger than expected with a pretty garden and fountains, the pine trees were shaped and groomed so nicely....More

Misty weather morning fog dew through arch secret garden dreamy view scene. Mystery guides you to find the smallest miracles. Dew drops on a calla. Abstract bush branches in bright morning light.

We were here over New Year's and did extensive research on opening times and holiday closures. Both a local tour agency and the official website of Andalucia told us that the Alcazar would be open on New Year's Day. We showed up to find it...More

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.
