The Alcazar itself isn't that impressive - it's not particularly large or architecturally interesting or home to any super interesting relics, although it does have more than a few large Roman mosaics - but the gardens are pretty nice. it's mostly famous because Ferdinand and...More

Filled with history and beauty, by the river with views to the Calahorra tower, this is a great spot. After touring the fortress, take a stroll through the lovely gardens with water features. Occupied centuries ago by Ferdinand and Isabella.

Whilst the building itself is interesting with some quite large and impressive roman mosaics, the real interest of the visit, revolves around the water base gardens. 'Paths' of water disappearing into the distance, bordered by paths on which one could actually walk, numerous 'pebbled areas'...More

Alcazars in other Spanish cities far out strip this one -- in fact, this one has been stripped of most of the historic artifacts that would make it a must-see. But, the gardens are amazing -- worth the visit all by themselves. In mid-summer, come...More

This is situated very close to the Mesquita. Good views from the tower ( but nowhere near as good as from the Mesquita bell tower ) The gardens were excellent - well worth a visit.

This ancient fortify palace is small, but the wonderful gardens are the attraction here. Visit the chapel to see the Roman mosaics. They are restored and displayed on the walls

The whole thing is sort of up for interpretation; but the gardens are worth it if you need a quite moment out of the crowds.

This palace used to be the residence of Roman Governors and Moorish Caliphs and in 1328 became the home of the Spanish Kings when visiting Córdoba. It is known as the Alcázar of the Reyes Cristianos because the Christian King Fernando and Queen Isabella lived...More

This Moorish mosque was left in tact when the Catholic Church moved in. A harmonious blend of the architecture of the Moors and Christians will bring you joy. Outside is a cacophony of crowds and traffic but inside is quiet and beautiful where you can...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.
