I made four attempts over the years to visit the Cathedral and Mosque having heard much about it. Finally in January 2015 I made it to ~Cordoba. I took an organised coach tour . The local walking tour guide had very good English. It is difficult to comprehend the size of the mosque and the Cathedral "dwarfed" inside it. The... More

One of the best place I have ever seen as a mosque and cathedral. So beautiful wall and ceiling, how huge and fascinating building is it. I was very happy beeing there and advise everybody to go and feel 700 hundred years back.

I heard about the place a lot but could not imagine how it really is. Gorgeous mosque with hundreds of arches, mystical and fascinating. then in the middle there's a church with typical baroque ornamentation, benches, organ. so weird....Luckily, the mosque was not destroyed, luckily, it embraces the church and not the other was around. we spent an hour going...

this unique architectural wonder is definitely a MUST SEE if visiting Cordoba. personally, we made the decision to come here, just so we could visit the place. it's easy to get lost in the history of this wonderful building and spending half a day to a day here doesn't seem unreasonable. highly recommended! ;-)

A must if you are in Cordoba. Rent the audio guide for sure. I didn't and it was a huge mistake. I was a little lost and didn't know what I was looking at the entire time. I really wish there was a historic background session as part of the ticket entry.

Get a tour guide, it makes it so much more interesting! The building changed owners and purposes and was added onto so many times! A guide can show you. fascinating!

One of the most sublimely beautiful buildings I have ever seen, and a place where the veil between heaven and earth is truly thin. Nothing from the exterior alludes to what lies within. Yet the building points beyond itself . . .

Truly impressive on many levels...religious faith's expression, architectural beauty and function on a grand scale, the historical clash & fusion of Islam and Catholicism atop Roman ruins... one of Spain's iconic sites (and sights). We've seen most of Christianity's cathedrals in Europe and the USA; Cordoba's 'Mezquita' is unique... overwhelming in size and dazzling in artistry (both Muslim and Catholic... More

We were staying in Seville, but made a day trip to Córdoba, and I am so pleased we didn't miss this experience. The vast, double-arched mosque is intself spectacular, but to then come across a towering Christian cathedral in the middle is extraordinary. The surrounding streets are the Jewish quarter. If only Jews, Muslims and Christians could be so well... More
