This historical building is a must place to visit for ones who want to witness the greatness of moslem era in Europe. Not only this mosque (la Mescita) but also Cordoba and Andalusia region in general are very inspiring from historical, cultural, architecture and religious views. Come early before 8am to get a free entry for 1 hour.

Great history - well worth a visit! Finding parking can be more complicated here than in other Spanish destinations but good parking available when you find it.

The shear size of the Mosque, the history, the amazingly different architecture is still in my mind's eye. Just not to be missed. I don't know how the experience would differ if the Cathedral and Mosque were crowded. Bring a sweater!

Visited today. Ticket costs €9 per adult. Ticket office is in Orangery, near the mesquite tower, it opens at 10am. We arrived at 9.45am to avoid the queues. On entering the mosque/cathedral, the feeling of seeing history is almost overwhelming - so beautiful. The mix of the Islam & Catholicism is amazing, exemplifies tolerance on so many levels. Highly recommend... More

It's possible to get very close to the walls and relics of this historic palace. However, it is so disappointing that the town council has allowed so much tat around; there is a Burger King opposite one of the gates.

The majesty of the Muslim structure from the 900s when Cordoba was the world's most enlightened city, the beautiful expansions over the Moorish centuries, the Byzantine gifts, the cross-cultural pollination...and then the desecration, beautiful and masterful, but desecration by Christian kings is one of the great dramas of world history preserved in stone. You really feel for Charles V who... More

Not sure what else to say about the Mezquita y Catedral de Córdoba, words can not describe this enchanting place!! There's so much history, do your read ahead to become familiar, a guide would be nice but is not necessary, there are plenty of self guided tours written and you can rent a guide by earphone there. Take your time,... More

The reason most visit is to see this place. Impressive external building hides lovely court yard where all can wander freely. I visited Sunday so could only go in at 3 to the Cathedral. Even though queue was massive for tickets it only took 30 mins to be inside. The huge interior with all the columns and stripped arches is... More

I was with three friends and we really loved it. I wish they had a paid place where to keep our backpacks, as we had to carry them with us during all our visit. The guy at the exit wouldn't let me wait for my friends inside because it was nearly closing time (twenty minutes to closing time), ridiculous, he... More

There are many cathedrals on earth, some worth seeing, others not. This one belongs to the first category, no doubt. The reasoning for my comment is quite simple: An impressive and quite unique combination of Christian and Moor architecture. On a huge plot the main attraction is the nave which is characterized by numerous arches in Moor style. From almost... More
