Córdoba houses remains of the city walls, dating from the Almoravid period, which formed the eastern boundary of the city, and which were constructed using large moulds.
Running parallel to the Ronda del Marrubial, the walls measure almost 400 m in length, 6 m in height and are 2.45 m thick.
The exterior possesses 14 towers, some of which are almost completely ruined or lost beneath a thick covering of ivy.
The walls do not possess adjoining buildings, and there are some fragments of wall and masonry that were repaired by the Christians on calle Muro de la Misericordia and at the Torre de la Malmuerta.
The interior face of the walls is in a better state of conservation.
