I don't know whether we missed something with the museum but it was basically a load of nonsense. They had some figures and miniature farmland and the audioguide wasn't very informative... the top two rooms housed miniatures of the Alhambra which we'd seen two days...More

Calahorra Tower is definitely the best spot in Córdoba to have an impressing global view of the historic city center with the dominating Mezquita, as well as the Roman Bridge.

The tower gives a great view of the city but I think that the most important thing is the way the museum is structured staying true to its educational purpose. Worth every cent...

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.
