The gardens are most beautiful even while we only saw them combined with some rain. Their spacious and combine playful colors with structure in design. It is very nice to see the green trees with the canteens on the background. It isn’t surprising to see...More

Lovely Palace with Lovely Gardens! After a nice tour of the Palace, we visited the lovely, well-kept gardens. We saw the original irrigation system at work and the gardeners showed real pride in keeping the gardens extremely beautiful. Try to visit in Spring or early...More

We very visited the Córdoba Alcazar as part of an organised tour from Seville on a day of torrential rain. The day before we were in the Seville Alcazar (which is stunning). Very little to see inside and outside in comparison with Seville. It does...More

The main thing to see is the gardens (Not much going on inside although there are some artefacts and you can go up the tower). They're absolutely beautiful - we had a great time wandering round and admiring everything. €4.50 well spent!

We really enjoyed the Alcazar, we spent just over an hour viewing the inside and outside, climbing up for views over the grounds and the gardens. We found it a quant little spot, would highly recommend, only €4.50 each for adults.

We enjoyed very much strolling through these beautiful gardens and patios. The complex includes exquisite fountains. Ascend the walls and one of the towers to get a view of the surroundings: Juderia, Mezquita and the river with its roman bridge.

Gardens are just delightful, reminded me a little of Versailles. Make sure you have good knees if climbing up towers !! . Missed a trick by not having an on site cafe/ bar .

We were impressed with our experience at the Alcazar. The view at the top of the Alcazar's tower gave us views of Cordoba’s key attractions. We then walked around the Alcazar's garden with trees, flowers and pools. It was a peaceful way to end our...More

Worth a visit but if you are short of time there are better places in Córdoba. There is very little to see inside and the gardens are pretty but again there are better. This is not the Alcázar in Seville. It’s still very photogenic and...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.
