One of the few places to rival Granada in its blend of Moorish and Spanish architecture. A real gem.

Had a lovely moorish square very similar to parts of La Alhambra in Granada but not much else. The indoor museum part is a bit plain and didn't last long. Expect the whole visit to last about an hour

About a 15 minute walk from the central area, it's well worth visiting. A beautiful restoration with stunning old carving. How did they do that with lasers? Be careful about opening hours as it's a functioning local government building still.

I was a bit dissappointed by the Aljaferia and had expected more large patios with mosaic floors. There were some beautiful rooms and spaces to see, but I felt like in 45 minutes I had seen it all. The architecture is very beautiful though. There...More

Breathtaking palace that clearly shows what great cultures the Spanish and Islamic are. Amazingly restored keeping the original impact and details intact. We took the tour included with the ticket. Nicely paced and great guide.

Really stunning architecture at this 11th century palace. The carving and painted ceilings are really stunning. The central courtyard is so peaceful. It's €5 for adults but kids cost only €1.
