  • Mandatory stop for those who like history, put on the headphones and listen carefully to the story of each room. Exciting to know of civilizations so advanced that they lived in peace. Account of the Alhambra, Mosque of Cordoba, among other details...

  • Amazing place and must see on your list for Cordoba. Entrance if 9 Euros for two adults including audio guide. Used to be the old gatehouse and later a prison. On 3 levels with the roof terrace from where are good views and situated at the and of the Roman bridge. A lot of Islamic history and some amazing 3D models of the original Cordoba mosque and scenes from life on though times.
  • Excellent museum! Is about how Christians, Muslims and Jews lived in the same city and share all their knowledge. Is an amazing museum.
