From the outside, just a tower with a view over the bridge. But it's far more than that, a fascinating and very illuminating insight into the cultural and religious history of Andalucia. Well worth an hour of anybody's time.

This tower is located at one end of the Roman bridge. According to websites, the Calahorra Tower is the oldest defense tower of the city. The tower nowadays houses the Museo Vivo de Al-Andaluz.

Enjoy an interesting audio and visual tour of the history and culture of the area as historical figures talk about art, architecture, science and music of Cordoba. As a bonus, there are great views of the city from the roof of the tower.

This impressive tower stands at the south end of the Roman Bridge overlooking the Guadalquivir River. It is a fortified gate and the oldest defence building in the city, built by the Moors to prevent the city from being attacked. In 1369 it was vastly...More
