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.

The modest entrance fee includes an excellent audio-guide in several languages, including English. The exhibition is about the great times when Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in harmony, and Cordoba was the largest city in Europe. Best of all are the models of Andalucía's two...More
