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

When you walk in make sure you close your eyes before you enter (watch out for any steps!) and then open your eyes to take it all in. It is simply outstanding architecture. I must confess that, while not a Muslim, I do find it surprising that Catholics are not allowing Muslims to enjoy sharing the religious value of this beautiful property. However that cannot take away anything about the experience of this amazing place.

I had read about and seen photos of this Church turned Mosque turned Cathedral, but nothing is quite like walking through it. The history of this building can be felt in every stone and every wall. It was very spiritual and exemplified the wonderful history of Cordoba where Muslims, Jews and Christians all lived together in peace (for a while).

This is one of the town's main attractions and worth visiting, and taking an audio guide which was very informative.

The Mezquita is every bit as amazing as I expected it to be - very atmospheric, hauntingly beautiful.

I'd definitely recommend seeing this. Fantastic architecture and take your time going around it and an audio tour is a must. Will definitely be back to see this cathedral and mosque in the future. One of my favorite places in all my travels.
