A small space with some interesting historical finds, and some pleasant gardens. Not as impressive as Seville Alcazar, but then not as expensive

The whole is very interesting, because one can visit the castle and the wonderful gardens with their pools. Some nice views of the old city.

There isn’t a lot to see inside the palace, although there are some excellent Roman mosaics, but the gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed spending time wandering around and sitting in them. You can climb the tower for a better look.

The parts of the building that are open to visitors are fascinating - especially the walk at the top of the walls. But even better is the large hall with the enormous recovered Roman mosaics. And then the gardens, first glimpsed from the building. Even...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.
