Over twelve centuries old, with a history that reflects the various religions that built and rebuilt this grand edifice, it is simply magnificent in style, workmanship, and scale. There is so much to see it is difficult to take in all the various attractions in one visit. for those who study history, there is visual history that is easy to... More

A breathtaking space with incredibly preserved art and architecture. Beautifully preserved and maintained. Seeing the huge Catholic Cathedral within the huger Islamic temple is fascinating. A must-see.

This was the reason that we went to Cordoba and we were not disappointed.What a fantastic architectural feat far bigger than you will imagine and amazing to stand in. There is a Cathedral in the middle of the mosque but but it is not immediately obvious as the mosque itself is so big.

The cathedral was amazing, be sure to bring cash as they don't accept cards. Plan to stay at least an hour to get the most out of the experience.

Such a beautiful place of interest - we spent several hours admiring the building and contents. It takes a little getting used to as the plan to accompany the audio handset wasn't necessarily in the same order as you would take when walking around but once mastered it was very informative.

It's very impressive outside, but not inside. Despite being Cordoba's main attraction, there's nothing special in it. Andalucia is rich in outstanding cathedrals, and this one is actually not at all the best (an ordinary one, I'd say). I took an audio guide, and it was quite interesting to learn the history of this Mosque/Cathedral, but still you can read... More

This is a most extraordinary building, encompassing a cathedral within a mosque. It is such a beautiful and atmospheric space, and the courtyard area is also quite stunning with fountains and orange trees. Sadly, as we weren't with a group, we were not allowed to visit the bell tower, but the entrance fee is very reasonable and it's a site... More
