Description

The spectacular fortification of the Catholic Monarchs

Located next to the River Guadalquivir, the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos 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 present vestiges will take us from the Roman period to the times of the Holy Inquisition. It was in this Alcazar where some of the most significant moments of our history took place, illustrious characters such as Alfonso XI and the Catholic Kings, Christopher Columbus changed the course of history.

Inside, we will find archaeological remains, labyrinthine corridors that respond to his time in prison, palatial rooms, towers, some baths that are different from anything you have seen before and some impressive gardens where flowers and their perfumes are mixed with the water of the fountains. A set that invites you to discover the secrets, conspiracies and the memory of the walls that gave birth to the important landmarks of our history, such as the residence where the conquest of the city of Granada was conceived and directed by the Catholic Kings for 8 years or the first meeting between the Catholic Kings and Christopher Columbus to start their journey towards a new route that would lead them to the discovery of America.

Roman Port, Visigothic residence, Islamic Alcazar, Christian fortress, seat of the Holy Inquisition, civil prision... The building was declared an Object of Cultural Interest in 1931 and was part of the city's ensemble declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. With this visit you will venture into history through its architecture, its gardens where water is the real protagonist, with unique remains from the Roman circus, a rich Mudejar decoration and the most important sculpture gallery of Christian kings in the Kingdom.
