  • 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.
