Alcazar, Cordoba

After yesterday's appalling explanation about the Mezquita, I think my attempt at the Alcazar may be even worse.
Basically, the Alcazar is a palace and fortress, just round the corner from the Mezquita and the dreaded Equestrian venue.  It dates from the time of the Vizigoths, which I think is around the year 500.
Again we did not get a guidebook, or even an audio guide. Instead we just wandered ignorantly around in the sunshine,  enjoying the beautiful rose and water gardens.
We also explored the building and climbed to the top of the tower to check out views of the city.
Ps, Many thanks to the performing fish who kindly agreed not to swim over the reflection of the tower for the duration of the photo shoot.
