Ok, the Roman mosaics are nice and the park is lovely, but the Alcazar is nothing at all – only empty rooms. The entrance price is not worth what you can see. Cash only at the entrance. Clean toilets in the park.

It cost €4.50 for entry and was worth it. The gardens are incredible. You could easily spend about 2 hours there. The flowers are beautiful. You can walk in and around the buildings too. It's located very close to the Mesquito cathedral. Definitely worth a visit.

The interior contains a series of Roman mosaic pavements discovered in the 1950's which are fascinating. The exotic gardens are full of terraced pools with fountains and sweet smelling flowers. A nice place to chill on a very hot (32 degrees) afternoon

Pleasantly suprised as smaller than the other 2, but also quite different. The terraced gardens, with various pools possibly had more flowers in bloom than the others, and was a nice stroll. Fortunately a good number of fruit trees to provide some shade as you go. Accessing the building over a couple of levels showed the very old structure as... More

This afternoon we took a stroll through the juderia and the royal gardens before lunch. There was a short queue to get in and tickets cost €4.50. The garden is quite large and is well manicured. There were gardeners at work as we walked around. The ubiquitous orange trees are here in abundance but especially well pruned. There are large... More

The palace is interesting and beautiful. We were particularly impressed by the Roman mosaics from the old city that are very well displayed. The highlight for us was the gardens, laid out largely in the twentieth century, which are lovely, calm and peaceful.

There is not a whole lot to see inside the Alcazar itself, though there are some huge ancient mosaics that are quite lovely. I also did not have the opportunity to climb the tower, which probably would have offered a great view. But wandering the gardens is a must-see in Córdoba in and of itself! What these gardens have that... More

Watch out for ticket hawker outside touting the ticket. Only one staff serving. Line is very long. You need to pay 3 euro for the paper map. Badly operated site.

If you are in Cordoba and you visit Mezquita, you should also visit the Alcazar with its gardens. I was there in the end of april, when the temperature was about 25° and everything was blossoming. From top of Alcazar is a nice over view of the garden. Outside of Alcazar is also nice park.
