Photos Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos in Cordoba

Fortifications, gardens and palace

The Alcazar is a joy to stroll through on a warm spring day, when the flowers are in full bloom. Multiple fountains trickle and goldfish swim in the pools. In the 13th-century palace hang amazing Roman mosaics, and a Roman sarcophagus reminds us that death is just one step beyond an open door. In the summer, many open air concerts are held until late at night, including the Cordoba Guitar Festival. Click on the thumbnails below to see a larger version. Descriptions will be added in the coming weeks (can anyone identify flowers?).
