At the end of the Puente Romano (Roman bridge) is this old tower. Great views but the Living Museum is very odd.

This tower also houses the Museo Vivo de Al-Andalus, or the Museum of Andalusian life. There's an audio guide that comes with the entrance fee. To be honest, I thought the themes and exhibits were lacking in focus. The audio guide had a lot of...More

This is a 12th century Islamic fortress that guarded the Roman Bridge. Currently holds a museum from that timeframe. I didn't go in, but it is a splendid photo op with the bridge

Great historic tower accessed by the Roman Bridge. Wonderful view of the Mezquita from the top. The final spiral stairs need more lighting, especially on descent.

Really interesting and well worth hopping off the tour bus for. However, you need to be good with stairs to climb the tower. I went right up to the roof, where there are great views of the river and city beyond, but it was too...More

The top of the tower gives excellent views over the bridge and the city. However, the museum inside is not very good. It consists of a series of rather random exhibits, including tableaux and models, apparently about Moorish Spain. It gave no proper introduction or...More

The tower is at the end of the Roman bridge across the river, giving good views back across towards central Cordoba. The museum itself is a fascinating insight into not just the tower but also nearby monuments in Cordoba. You are given a headset programmed...More

A most fascinating insight of Christian, Moorish and Jewish times when all three lived side by side for hundreds of years. An excellent background, explains the culture and how things changed, since Roman times. One of the best museums we saw here.

There is not an awful lot to be said about this tower except it is part of the overall canvas of the area. It is all too easy to walk by without remembering just how much effort, labour and engineering skill went into creating this...More
