small castle or tower at end of the bridge, the translation of the name is the castle of freedom. At sunset the view from the top of it is amazing.

Defensive fortress, reportedly built in 12th century and restored by Henry II in 1369. It recently won a Cultural Heritage Award (see http://www.europanostra.org/awards/136/). The tower houses a museum (which charges admission) that has been well reviewed. It was closed at the time we were there, so check the Internet for operating hours. It is certainly attractive enough to photograph.

There are several floors that

Entry fee comes with audio tour. Most of the exhibits have a small talk about them. There is a long talk with they talk about the people who ruled the area. I enjoyed listening to this to learn more about the changes in Spain. It was interesting because it was not that long for each person.

A nice model of the Mezquita.

It was nice to see out over the city from the top. We were there during the feria so we could see how big that was.

It takes about an hour to listen to all of the tour.

Its all about the history of a place, this tower forms the entrance to the bridge that crosses the river, must have been very impressive when constructed, the whole place is now a museum.

I recommend this place to everyone who wishes to witness a fair & inclusive depiction of history. Seldom can we encounter the portrayal of a diverse population & their historical, philosophical & cultural legacies done in a respectable & comprehensive manner. Whoever are behind the Tower Museum, kudos to all of you. The building is small enough to make it a comfortable visit & due to its being located in an ancient Roman tower, the children will have fun running up & down the stairs & peering over the lookouts! History comes alive through the dioramas & the audio guides were a great help! Thank you whoever you are who run the Torre de la Callahora!
