Never got to visit the place because it only works until 16:30 on Saturday, despite that I found information on the internet the previous day saying that it is opened until 20:00 on Saturdays.

Just a lovely stroll through castles and gardens that made history, after having visited other sites in andalusia it's nothing you'd miss. However, as part of a tour through the city definitely noting to be missed

Palace on it's own is nog really worthwhile, but the gardens are really nice and provide some coolness in the hot temperatures of Corduba. Check for opening hours, as sunday's it closes early and on Monday it's closed all day!

My wife and I very much enjoyed walking through the Alcazar and its many passages, and seeing where Ferdinand and Isabella lived for eight years. The gardens outside were peaceful and quite delightful.

The irony in the title is a glimpse of the history of this region. Lovely gardens-and great history.

Takes about 45 minutes to look around, so will fill in a part of the day, but nothing stands out. An old building, with some history attached to it, but not especially good to look at.

Visit here to see the beautiful gardens and you can relax in the shade. This is definitely worth the entrance money. Poor info and no signs in English in the castle. Difficult to get up and down the stairs to the top of tower and...More

The Dancing Fountains are in the gardens of the "Alcazar de los Reyes" and are in the evening (after dark). The time depends on the time of year because it needs the sun to be down so that the waters can be illuminated. More... More
