Also visit the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, the Palace of the Christian Kings, built in 1328 by Alfonso XI. In the interior of the palace there are remarkable Arabian baths, Roman mosaics and a sarcophagus of marble from 3rd Century.
Originally there were four towers at the corners of the Alcazar, three of which can be seen still today: the Torre de Los Leones, the oldest, which forms the entrance to the palace, the octagonal Torre del Homenaje and the round Torre del Rio. The fourth tower, Torre de la Vela, was destroyed in 19th century.
As you wander through the Jewish Quarter, going back to the time of the Romans and Goths, you will notice many important monuments reminding one of the most important sons of Cordoba: Roman philosopher Seneca, Arabian philosopher Averroes and Jewish philosopher Maimonides.
Here you can find also one of the few synagogues existing today in Spain, this one built in 1315. Close to it there is the Bullfight-Museum. In the Zoco you can find traditional artisans and, in summer, watch Flamenco performances.

Unbelievable. The lady who gave us the tour was soooooo amazing. Only two of us on the tour and the knowledge of this woman was out of the world. THE best day. She recommended the best tapas restaurant to eat at as it had just been judged one of the best in Cordoba. Oh. Made. My Visit. Do it.
