Cordoba’s Alcazar, By Day & By Night

Like the rest of Cordoba, the Alcazar de Los Reyes Cristianos is a place steeped in history.

20121028-014732.jpg It is, deservedly, one of the city’s top sites. The Alcazar’s gardens, the remains of the Arab baths, and the palace itself are all reminders of how great Cordoba must have been in its prime. The view from the towers over the city and of the mosque across the way are beautiful.

A guided tour that took us through the grounds, the history of the Alcazar and the different cultures that ruled in Cordoba brought the castle grounds to life and make for a very memorable tourist activity.
