If you visit only one place in Cordoba this should be it. The interior is breathtaking. The centre is a wonderful Cathedral with the outer parts consisting of red and white arches dating back to about 987 when the building was a Mosque. You can easily spend half a day in this beautiful building.

It doesn't matter how many photos or videos that you have seen prior to visiting the Great Cathedral and Mosque- you will just be blown away with its beauty. Make sure that you allow enough time to soak up the atmosphere.

After what seemed like upwards of an hour, I finally located the Trip Advisor site for this attraction. The actual website is www.catedraldecordoba.es (I have the brochure in my hand! It says "La Catedral de Cordoba") It should have been easier.

More acurately called the "Mosque Cathedral" tody, it melds the elements of the two warring religions into what is visited today. The red and white striped keys, or arches, date to about year 987. The key door portals, the arches, all harken back to the era of Islamic building.

Later in the 1200's, the Mosque of Cordoba had a name change (under the reconquest of the Christians) to the "Cathedral of Santa Madre de Dios." The ensuing construction brought in elements of Christianity very much in evidence in the revisions and additions to the mosque.

It is a huge and impressive structure but most memorable for the red and white striped arches, of which there are very, very many. This is a World Heritage site and worthy of the designation.
