Wonderful example of mixing arab and christian architecture, this time the old building was not completely removed by the new one, the result is magnificient. A shame it does not happen so often, Heat was high but worth the visit.

Absolutely stunning how various religions come together here. Red about the history of the place, take your time, sit down, and imagine what these walls have seen

I agree with other reviewers that there are hundreds of pillars, but the mere size of the complex, the decoration, the many chapels, the gold and silver monstrances and other items on display make it far more than a bunch of columns. It also its one of the coolest places in the hottest city of Spain, so you can best... More

Beautiful and unique place, worth a visit when in Cordoba. The arches make and interesting perspective from every point. We went at about 3 in the afternoon, and there was no line at all. There are autoguides available, which makes it nice to hear the explanations.

Nice architecture, quite has a gothic style to it. Not so crowdes most of the time so it's not hard to get tickets or anything.

When you enter the cool of the Mosque in Córdoba, you are hit by wave after wave of arches coming from all direction, it is a very surreal and totally mesmerizing. For the pure esthetic or spiritual experience of the mosque, just walk about among the pillars, stop, look back, look around and contemplate. It is a very profound place,... More

the most amazing place. I also saw the Alhambra. I stayed inside the palace grounds in the hotel there. it is very limited in it's rooms but we got them. I had never had a more beautifull trip than in Spain. The Mesquita and Alhambra were the most beautifull of all places I have ever been and I have been... More

Not just that Mezquita is beautiful but it tells its history like a book - if you want to read it. Please buy a guide book to see how its different sections have been built. Otherwise it is just one beautiful building among many others. I think the Christian part, cathedral, is rubbish compared to the mosque. Ps. I am... More

This is truly a very special and unique place. Take time to just seat and take in all the beauty and history that is in front of you. Try to go early specially in the summer to avoid the crowds. That place you will never forget.

We were staying in Seville for a few days and took the c. 45 min train journey to Cordoba to experience and witness this incredible place. We spent approx. 3-4 hours there and could have stayed longer. Nothing can prepare you for the fantastic interior of this Church/Mosque/"Palace" - it's grandeur, peace, architecture and design are truly astonishing!! There, a... More
