The tower's restoration is beautiful and the audio guide was helpful, but I didn't really like this place .My husband liked it though - so a compromise 3 stars. I could find only three depictions of women in the museum - two dancers, two women...More

It's a small museum and it takes an hour to experience the different features. The museum tells a very important story about a period in the history of cordoba where christians, muslims and jews lived peacefully together.

I highly recommend entering the inside of the tower, there is a great interactive museum inside devoted to mixture of cultures in art and science. There is a great view to the Roman Bridge and Cordoba Mesquite from there.

I stopped off here whilst doing the red HoHo bus route (Stop 16) The tower is at the end of the Puente Romano & well worth a 30-60min. visit for the multi-religion displays (audio guide available) & the lovely views from the roof. You can...More
