    We went to the Alcazar at night for the light/water/music show. Since it's the low season, we practically had the gardens to ourselves. The show included projections depicting the historical periods of Cordoba, three separate light/water/music areas with 3-4 songs each and narration in Spanish about Christopher Columbus (My Spanish is a bit shady so I could be wrong). It was really enjoyable and I could have watched some of the choreography of the water and lights over and over. A great way to spend the evening.

    Prepare to be amazed when you walk through the archway to the castle. Just like the Mezquita-catedral de Cordoba, the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos is full of Moorish and Catholic history, but the gardens are unbelievably vibrant through the colorful attributes of the landscape, flowers, fountains, and pools.

    Built along the banks of the Guadaliquivir, near la Mezquita. It was the center of power of the Caliphate of Cordoba until its fall to the reconquest. It would later serve as a royal residence for the Reyes Catolicos (Isabel and Ferdinand). Later it would become one of the headquarters for the Spanish Inquisition. If you are in Cordoba it is an absolute must visit, you get to learn a great deal of the history not only of Cordoba but of Spain.
