  • Nice tower that is accessed after crossing the Roman bridge over the Guadalquivir River. You can access and see the city and the river from above. You can take very nice pictures from there

  • A uniquely shaped tower located at the end of the Roman Bridge. It was beautiful enough to go late and climb, but only from the outside.

  • Such an interesting museum. Only audio narrative available, no signage, but the narration, is synced with light changes in and on the dioramas and models. Fascinating details and aspects not often included in the bigger museums. Exceptionally helpful staff.
  • One of the best places in Córdoba to understand some of the thoughts of previous times. In addition, the building itself it's a magical place with great view of the Mosque.
