The local church authorities are trying to suppress the Mezquita name, and Unesco has something to say on this issue. There is also the general question of the Church registering the Mezquita as their 'property'. Apart from these controversies, the Mezquita is well worth a visit, in spite of the mini-Christian exhibitions inside that do not belong there. The Patio... More

On Monday morning between 8:30 and 9:30am you can enter free. No groups can go at that time, so as individual tourists you practically have the place to yourself. I visited here 40 years ago and they have done an incredible job keeping this monument in shape.

We went twice, at night to see how beautiful it is lighted up and in the day to actually walk around the mezquita. It's so so beautiful!

This is a must-see attraction in Córdoba. Of great historical and cultural significance. Need about three hours to fully appreciate. I recommend the audio guide.

This was the reason that we came here. The building is simply stunning, a wonderful fusion of Christian and Moorish architectures.

This is well worth a visit! The earlier Church was destroyed during the Islamic invasion, following which a huge Mosque was built in the year 785. When the city was reconquered in 1236, a Cathedral was built inside the Mosque. The contrasts between the two styles are worth experiencing.

It's a wonderful masque. Full of history and beautiful architecture just luke the rest of the city. It shows you the different religions that were part once of this majestic city.

This place is really weird. You visit a cathedral inside a mosque. The styles are so different that it worth the cost.

One of the most beautiful Cathedals we've seen, and we've seen a few. The cost was €8.00 each, and well worth it. There was 5 of us, ranging from grandparents to a15 year old granddaughter. Everyone was impressed with the building and interior, the walls and the architecture structure. Not many people there visiting, making it a pleasure to walk... More
