“You must pay the 8€ and go inside.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

It was almost unbelievable once you enter through the doors, sheer jaw dropping & on a grand scale. Do go there you will not be disappointed, you will never forget the first impressions.

“so impressive, peaceful”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

it is MUST SEE no.1. In the middle is a cathedral which was built later in 15. century and it was something what should had never been done. it destroyed the meaning of the mosque and the cathedral itself is just a cathedral.
outside I suggest to have tortilla di patata in the corner bistro. also narrow streets around the mosgue worth to visit.

“A visual feast”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

One of the many amazing things to see in Spain. Such an amazing building full of pattern and culture. Two religions form the bases of the design of architecture, sculpture and mosaic. I had no idea how impressive it would be. The surrounding Jewish quarter also very interesting.

Beautiful Christian cathedral. You can tell it was once an Arabic mosque. Unlike anything you might have seen elsewhere. A MUST see.

“Well Worth the Trip to Cordoba to Visit This Sight Alone”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We visited several cities during our trip to Spain, and decided to stop in Cordoba on our way back to Madrid, our departure city. And, we were glad we did! The approach to the Mesquita on the beautiful Roman bridge from across the river gives you a good idea of the size of it -- it's huge. Inside, it is beautiful, unlike any other building we've ever visited, and although spacious, there is something magical about it. The mixture of column styles (and there are hundreds of them) is reminiscent of the underground cistern in the old city of Istanbul. The Visigoth and Moorish areas were the most striking; however, the Christian cathedral built inside of the Mosque is also well worth the time to explore. It is also nice to walk around the perimeter and cross over the Roman bridge at night before heading to dinner.
