“A real world treasure - screwed by two religons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Originally a mosque, what a beauty it must have been, Large courtyard in the middle and there must been water (needs research). An architectural beauty from the Muslim period in Spain.

The the Christians took over and built a fabulous church right smack in the center.

Looking at it makes you cry.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

We did the night-tour in the Mezquita. With a small group (40) through this enormous mosque is an amazing adventure. Lights, music and radio guidance makes is a very special experience. Bye tickets in the mosque during the opening-hours.. Enjoy!

“An absolute Must-See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

If you're in Cordoba you absolutely must see the Grand Mezquita. It's gorgeous. Inside the Mszquita there is a lot of history. Go early because on the day we were there they asked everyone to leave at 11:00 because (I think) a service was about to start.

“eyeopening and breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is an unique and must see attraction. It's worth it to take the 2-hour Ave train from Madrid just to see it. Even more worthwhile to combine a trip to Sevilla with Cordoba. Although there is a fee to visit the Mezquita, the history, the contrast between the two culture and the architectural beauty of it are definitely worth it. The city is not too touristy and got a comfortable air about it.
