The Roman Bridge is a much restored (essentially Moorish on Roman bases) structure. The Calahorra Tower is a Moorish defense structure of 1369 (and contains a small museum ). It is on the South bank of the Guadalquivir River. Downstream (West) on the North Bank are the Arab Water Wheel and the Alcazar.(which contains spectacular Roman artefacts and charming pools and gardens). A portion of the Moorish defensive wall runs along the river bank and another segment along the Juderia to the Almodovar Gate. All of these can be spotted out on a map and make an easy walk when visiting the Mezquita.

Directions: Near the Mezquita
