Full description

Discover the fort-cum-palace of the Catholic kings on a guided tour of Cordoba’s Alcazar. Built on the remains of Moorish palace, the Alcazar has been witness to dozens of historical events of great importance. Follow in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus, who met Fernando and Isabel here in 1486. Learn about its time as the headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition. Stroll through remarkable rooms, such as the Salón de los Mosaicos (Hall of Mosaics). See the crenellated towers, and the Patio Morisco baths with their Moorish motifs. Climb the tower for panoramic views of the gardens. Then, take a stroll through the landscaped gardens to see features such as pools, fish ponds, fountains and orange trees.

    Fatima was our guide here, and she was great! This site is very unique because of how little of the original structure remains. Most of the signage here was in Spanish, which I can’t read, so without a guide I would have been completely oblivious to the history in this building. I would have been underwhelmed to visit this site without a guide, and would definitely recommend having one.

    The site is magnificent and our guide seemed really competent, but we weren't able to take full advantage of his comments, since we don't speak Spanish at all. Unfortunately, we were unable to book a guided tour in French largely because of the Covid 19 pandemic. Similarly, the tour circuit was shortened, there was signage that prevented us from accessing the whole rooms.
