Owner description: Roman Catholic church that was once a mosque. Blending many architectural styles, the structure evolved over the centuries.

This was without a doubt a highlight of our week in Andalucia. Not all places of worship inspire spirituality and a sense of awe but The Mezquita certainly does despite the crowds and flashing cameras. For a few euros' entry, you witness how beauty is akin to godliness in the best possible way and can only admire the artistry and the faith that went into its creation. No sense of conquest and domination here, as in Seville cathedral, for example, but a sharing of beauty and artistry to convey Truth,whatever that might be! Exquisite!

Spanish referring to this cathedral simply as "Mezquita", initially built as a mosque was converted in a cathedral. Is possible to visit the Mezquita for free since 08:30 to 09:30 (after 09:30 everybody must leave) is really huge then we recommend to enter at 8:30. Is amazing just to rise your look and admire everything around you...an unique masterpiece

Unlike at most places, this is not a cathedral built over a former mosque, but is a cathedral within the same building formerly a mosque. We visited on a Sunday in March. Unlike what is published, it opened at 8:30 a.m. And we could stay until 11:30 when services started. We were lucky to watch a procession this Sunday with a statue of Mary being carried into the cathedral. We spent 2.5 hours in the Mesquita with the audiophone. It had very few visitors early but near 10 began to fill up with tour groups.
