Discover The Alcazar de Cordoba Spain

The Alcazar of the Catholic Kings is a Gothic-style military building which was constructed in 1328 on the orders of King Alfonso XI. It served as a residence for Catholic kings for 8 years and even played host to Christopher Columbus. The property was built on the remains of earlier buildings since during the Roman period this was a fortified area housing various constructions.
The fortress is more or less square and has four towers on each corner, one of which, the Torre de la Paloma, was destroyed in the middle of the last century. Inside you'll find the building and the gardens, as well as the main gallery which leads through to the Salon de los Mosaicos, from which the Royal Baths and the Moorish Patio are accessible. The latter, in turn, leads through to the gardens.
