The mosque / mezquita is amazing. It's just a shame the catholics ruined it by building a cathedral in the middle and putting crosses all over the place. We went on an evening tour which was excellent, just a shame no photography allowed, and a...More

It is a very unusual and peaceful site, a mix of a Cathedral and a Mosque that can only be found in Andalusia. I definitely recommend you take a guided tour in order not to overlook key pieces of architectures

It’s a mixture of Catholic, Roman and musulman culture. Incredible place and with lots of history, best place to visit during your stay in Cordoba

You dont need to pay for a tour to see this. The art work is intense, heavy, dark and ornate. The space isnt very large so it is easy to navigate on your own.

As a historical building it is extremely rich, If you go early you can go for free however it is usually busy around the clock.

When you enter it, you will be really impressed. We have seen many churches, cathedrals, mosques and have not seen anything like this. Worth visiting.

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.

Park on the opposite side of town or the river. Much easier.
