“one of the best”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

In our opinion this is one of the best attractions in Spain. Entrance free before 9:30 at which time the groups begin coming around. Take pictures. Courtyard lit up in the evening.

“Beautiful and unique”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The cathedral is gorgeous and huge! It is so unique and has tons of the horseshore stripped columns that give the cathedral its signature look. There is a lovely chapel and some pretty niches. It costs 8 euros to get in and if you get there around 9:30 you can get in line and be in pretty quickly when they start selling tickets at 10. I loved it, but honestly, unless you are part of a tour or REALLY into exploring each nook and cranny in detail the whole thing will take you less than an hour to see in full. What a beautiful hour though! Cordoba also has plenty of shopping and restaurants so you could easily make a half day of it!

“An Architectual Gem”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We add our enthusiastic endorsement of this "must see" work of art. The geometric designs and skillful carvings as well as interplay of different stone media are a delight for the visual senses.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We saw this place early in the morning about10 just before the 1000 s of tour groups arrive. Be warned they are everywhere. The place itself is beautiful and amazing considering the different religions at work. The price was fine 8 euro and all was beautiful.
