I am stunned to read some of the reviews that didn't like this place. It is, in my opinion, one of the truly beautiful places in Spain. It is still in use a church, so do not expect a sound and light show, but if...More

Over the years we have been to many cathedrals and mosques but this is totally different from anything else we've seen. The pillars are amazing - both my friend and I walked in and said "wow"! It is a huge place - it can probably...More

Go visit this stunning piece of moorish architecture. It's incredible the buildings created by the moors way before their time.

Clearly this is a major draw card and quite rightly so. We took a tour and cannot help but wonder how much people really got from just walking around without hearing about the history of this unique place. We also did the night tour -...More

The main reason I came to Cordoba is to visit this unique mosque and cathedral in 1 place. Upon entering the building, I was amazed at the sea of columns and red striped arches before me. Visitors like me were busy taking photos of these...More
