Photo Above -Despite extensive restoration since Roman times, the bridge still stands on its original Roman foundations. Note the building at the end of the bridge. This is the location of Museo Vivo de Al-Andalus.

Large blocks (apparently Roman) line the river's bottom and support the bridge.
At the south end of the bridge is the Museo Vivo de Al-Andalus. This museum is a good place to start your tour of Cordoba. It gives a good orientation to the history of the region as well as having excellent models of the original Mezquita. Its audio phone system allows you to receive information in a variety of languages.

Photo Left - the Museo Vivo de Al-Andalus is housed in the Torre de la Calahorra. This tower once protected the entrance to the Roman bridge.

Entering the museum allows one access to the top of the tower for excellent views of the city to the north and a deteriorating Arab mill to the west. On the north shore, somewhat hidden by trees, is an even more deteriorated mill with a restored waterwheel.

Photo Right - an Arab mill.

Besides grinding grains, the mills also pumped water up to the Alcazar.
