“amazing architecture”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The church is a must visit for the fact that it is probably very unique and different in its architecture than you have ever seen. It’s a combination of two different culture that is beautifully put together to form this beautiful cathedral and mosque. The interiors are perfect and filled with brilliant pieces of work and works for a great experience.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

It's a really interesting place, first time I went there was on a guided tour, which was great, obviously the guide explained everything, & it was fine.
This time I went alone with my partner, & we hired an audio guide from the booth, the guide was 3.5 euros & you need to leave your ID as a deposit, however, the audio guide was very good, & well worth the money.

“Awe inspiring”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

The size of this Mosque/Cathedral is very impressive. It seems to go on forever.

It is hard to compare it to other cathedrals because it has so much open space. It seems like there is less in the way of chapels, but that is probably because of the size. We don't spend a lot of time looking at chapels in the cathedral.

Our friend from Cordoba says it is a good thing to see, but you don't need to stay here for hours. You could stay longer, but 30 to 40 minutes is probably enough.

I was very impressed with this site. I would recommend going!
