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

Magnificent building but to really appreciate it you need to know the history, that said the building itself is truly awe inspiring. There are many more attractions in Cordoba really need at least three days to see them all.

This is awe-inspiring. The mezquita (mosque) is mesmerising with the marble columns, with distinctive red and white arches everywhere you look - set out in one hugh grid. Then to disrupt the flow, slap bang in the middle of this network of columns, a beautiful Christian cathedral, making a very bold statement in this spiritual place. A stunning and incredible building knitting together the history of this whole area. Worth the entry price of 8 euros, it is also open until 7.30pm, so we visited late afternoon and there were no queues.

An amazing attraction - not to be missed. It takes your breath away, and there's so much you really can't take it in - I took loads of photos and have since noticed so much from them that I missed on the visit. Really good value for money

We expected to see a cathedral and mosque. What we saw, instead, was a cathedral, whose architects tried to remove all reminders of the mosque, and thus the history of Spain. Although the mosque was once there, the current site barely acknowledges that. The site supports the adage that "history is written by the winners." Very disappointing.
