Molino de la Albolafia is the remains of an old water mill built by the Moors on the banks of the river overlooking the Roman Bridge. Not much left to see.

A good place to visit if you happen to stroll by the riverside while on your visit to Córdoba. They are near the town center and very easy to find.

This is an old mill near by the Roman bridge. The best seeing is from the bridge, in the opposite shore.

There isn't much you can do with this site other than photograph it from the wall or the bridge. It is derelict but shows the ingenuity of the arabs in making sure their gardens were irrigated.
