The Calahorra Tower is a Moorish fortress and tower from the Andalucian period of the 9th-13th century.The entrance fee is 4.5 euros with a nominal added fee for the( audio guide,recommended).
The tower has a moderately steep ascent ,which includes 8 rooms of pictures,models (great mosque and farming area) showcasing the history of the Moorish and Andalucian period.When you arrive at the top ,a grand view from the tower to the roman gate and Mesquita will amaze you.During the evening hours the bridge and tower are illuminated(worth a return).
Unfortunately while you are in the Moorish tower ,there is no information on the Roman Bridge, or gate.The museum is all about the Moorish period,a huge oversight in my opinion.
At the base of the tower ,you can view rafters along the bridge and river,and an old water wheel.The paths along the river banks provide other views and pictures.
The Mesquite,Alcazar and Callahora tower were my 3 favorite attractions.
