Information about the Guided Tour of the Alcazar of the Christian Kings

Located next to the banks of the Guadalquivir, the Alcazar of the Christian Kings is one of the most spectacular monuments in Cordoba. It is a fortification on whose walls is written the development of the city, but also the destiny of the kingdoms and cultures that had the Iberian Peninsula as their home. Inside, the vestiges present here take us from the Roman period to the times of the Holy Inquisition. It was in this Alcazar that some of the most significant moments in our history took place, illustrious kings such as Alfonso XI and the Catholic Kings, Christopher Columbus changed the course of history.

Roman port, Visigoth residence, Islamic Alcazar, Christian fortress, Inquisitorial prison… The building was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1931. Inside, you will find archaeological remains, labyrinthine corridors that tell of its prison period, palatial rooms, towers, baths that are unlike anything you have ever seen before and impressive gardens where flowers and their perfumes mingle and dance with the water of the fountains. An ensemble that invites you to uncover the secrets, conspiracies and memories of the great characters who lived within its walls.
