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.

An interesting site, well worth a visit. Our group was relatively small, so we didn't need audio devices. Our guide, Carmen, did a good job.

The tour was great - beat the huge line of people waiting to get in and our guide was very informative of the history of the Alcazar. Definitely learnt more information than I would have from the guide book. Our tour was in English, but our son did have a hard time understanding our Spanish guides accent. Overall, it was worth the extra euros for the guided tour.

The tour was excellent! Joaquin was very knowledgeable and didn't just share "facts" - he gave an insightful explanation of how the history of the Alcazar evolved.

Belle visite mais trop de monde avec guides sans écouteurs donc trop d'interactions entre les groupes
