I feel the here gardens are far better than those at the Alhambra in Granada ....the water features are good and the plants are well tended and colourful even in March. The buildings are also well kept. Certainly a "must see' in cordoba

This was a lovely site to visit. The views were pretty and a nice way to check out the layout of Cordoba. Unfortunately this is not a good place for those with walking disabilities. Otherwise, I would recommend visiting this beautiful site.

Even if the medieval castle itself doesn't have much to offer, the view from the top of it is really nice! And the gardens... the gardens are breathtaking! We arrived there early in the morning and we had the whole garden for ourselves. A little bit later the buses with groups of tourists started to arrive and the place got... More

The buildings aren't exceptional but the gardens are very pleasant. The visit is very quiet since there are less people than for the Mosque.

I loved every detail in this place, it's a very important historical place at the same time it has amazing gardens, it's big and it needs at least 2-3 hours to discover it. We've been there in November so we didn't need to pre-book.

Beautiful and well maintained gardens. The building itself is fairly simple with different floors and very old steep old stone steps. Definitely not friendly to wheelchairs... And also not friendly to bad knees and the elderly.

My husband and I really enjoyed walking around the beautiful gardens while admiring the tall cyprus trees and the plethora of orange trees. There are so many photo opportunities, you have to focus on just taking a leisurely stroll and not being an average tourist. The gardens were beautiful in February, so in spring and summer I would imagine that... More

We had a great tour guide and learned a lot about Spain and its history! The climb to the top was great and the view of Córdoba super a must see!
