This will blow your mind and represents the best of Andalucian architecture. Take an audio guide and pass a couple of wonderful hours.

So much culture and history in just one building. Absolutely beautiful. - Tip: they don´t allow suitcases in (we had a small travel size suitcase between two of us as we were travelling from Granada back to Madrid and made a stop in Cordoba) - therefore my boyfriend and I had to alternate our visits whilst one guarded the suitcase.

The sheer size takes your breath away. So much to see. An unusual building. Although there are a large number of visitors it never felt crowded

If you have not been to the Great Cathedral and Mosque before, you are guaranteed to go WOW when you walk in. We have been three times and still go WOW!!!
The cathedral constructed inside the mosque to preserve it, seems almost like vandalism, but at least they did not knock it as with so many others.
Entrance is Euros 8 - no reductions for seniors, unless they are locals, or a validated group of Spanish pensioners, and there are no guide books, so make sure you bring some information with you. The only information is a leaflet on the Cathedral, which does give some scant details on the mosque.
Do not try to compare this with any other building. It is truly unique.

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!
