Quite a stunning place. Absolutely beautiful with its mix of architectural styles and religions. As we were only in Cordoba for the day, after traveling up on the fast AVE train from Malaga, we didn't bother with the audio guide or a tour but would definitely do this when we return to get more of an insight into the story of this marvelous building. Buy your ticket at the booth then cross over the gardens diagonally to enter the mosque.

One of the most unique buildings I have ever been in. Built as Mosque in the 7th Century and converted to a Christian Cathedral in the 12th Century. Wonderful Moorish arched galleries surround a Gothic church. A must see if in Spain!

It has been while since my visit to the Mezquita, but it is something that I will never forget. Upon entering the mosque you get a feel of the holiness of the place irrespective of which religion you belong to. This is an architectural masterpiece that simply leaves you speechless. The city of Cordoba was rather indifferent but a visit to Cordoba is imperative simply to see the Mezquita.

The Mezquita, the enormous Cordoban mosque is supported by row upon row of red and white stripped arches resting on pillars from Roman buildings. In the centre, like a Tardis, the Christians built a cathedral when they reconquered Spain. This means you move from statues of saints to an amazing misrab and beneath all this a glimpse of Roman mosaics. Take your time and it will all make sense. Unfortunately at the moment the huge tower, built on top of the minaret is closed for restoration, so get your views at the Reyes Christianios. And don't forget to walk around the outside of the Mezquita to the Roman Bridge when you can look back at the building and get a feel for its size and scale. Absolutely sublime. The toilets, with a good view of the river, are in the bottom right hand corner, free but only two for ladies.

The most beautiful mosque/church I've ever seen. The art combination is one of a kind. Definitely a reason to visit Cordoba on its own.
