Description

Get ready for some gothic action at Córdoba's Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As well as religious royalty, this palatial fortress has housed the Courts of the Holy Offices, as well as civil and military prisons. Explore the iconic architecture with a guide and see where reigning monarchs concocted all their plans for Córdoba. Then, unwind in gardens filled with orange trees and get some great photos of the palace!

Join your local guide for a comprehensive tour and learn all about the palace's fascinating history and the holy figures that lived in it. Check out the colorful mosaics, ancient frescoes, and stunning views from the tower and palace windows. It's from these vantage points that reigning Catholic Monarchs would have waved at adoring passers-by!

When you've got your historic fix, you can relax in the beautiful gardens filled with winding waterways and blossoming orange trees - perfect for a picnic on a sunny Spanish day. And don't miss The Avenue of the Monarchs, a walkway filled with statues of every king and queen that called the palace home! How royally charming.

The tour and the guide was great!

Wonderful site to visit. Go with a small group. This tour has too many people (20+) and makes it challenging to get around, hear well and see what the guide is pointing out.

Joaquin was knowledgeable and had an ability to carry it over to the group.

Knowledgeable and interesting, with small off the beaten track snipers of history.

Juan Gabriel was such an articulate and passionate ambassador for the Alcazar, as well as the city of Cordoba. Highly recommend this tour.

Well pleased with tour. One recommendation to the tour operator. Please emphasize the necessity to find the guy with blue umbrella outside the main ticket office. I forgot that part (I know - it was briefly mentioned on the site). Nevertheless, I found myself trying to check in at the ticket booth, with an agent who kept telling me to go "afuera", outside. Luckily, I suddenly remembered with 2 minutes to spare before the appointment time.

Excellent and knowledgeable guide. We would never had learned as much if walking through it alone.

The guide knew lots of interesting facts and as a result I learnt more than if I had visited without a guide. We were also given an opportunity at the end to experience the gardens on own which added to the experience and I didn’t feel rushed.
