Calahorra Tower

Local name: Torre De Calahorra

The Torre de Calahorra tower is a remnant of an ancient defensive fortress guarding the passage to the Roman bridge. As part of the historic old town of Córdoba, it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1994. The building now houses the Al-Andalus Museum, whose mission is to promote intercultural dialogue. The facility presents audiovisual collections regarding the peaceful coexistence of Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures in Cordoba over the centuries.

Torre De Calahorra was built in the 12th century by Muslim caliphates for typically military purposes. In the 13th century it passed into the hands of Christian rulers. During its existence, it underwent many conversions and additions. The last renovation took place in 2007. In 2014, the facility received the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage Europa Nostra.
