Good reminder especially for Americans

Great reminder for first-comers, especially Americans, that Islam made signally important contributions to world culture, that it is not just what we read in the newspapers.

The wonderful Arabic patterns are all over the walls and are merges with the christian elements in it. If Cordoba is your only Andalusian destination, then you should not miss it. Otherwise you are going to see similar patterns all around Andalusia

I guess you could say it's like Islam and and Catholicism had a beautiful love-child that is this building! The mithrab, the altarpieces, the double horseshoe arches, the Arabic mosaics, the Latin and early Spanish carvings: this is a place sure to impress! Also, if you get there early in the morning (after 8:30, but before 9) you can go... More

Just when my husband had seen enough we ended up here and he was astounded. Okay, I loved it too. Well worth a visit, and I feel that if you go to Cordoba and not go here, you have really missed something important. No flash photography but you can still get excellent pics. We ended up without a tour but... More

We rented the audioguides at the entrance and the information provided as you progressed through the mezquita, provided not only a background to the building but also to the history and culture of medieval Spain.

There is so much to see, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to see everything. There is plenty of seating for tired legs though and you can take as many photos as you like.

The architectural genius of this place is enough to take your breath away. Its like walking in a forest of pillars. Then you get to the area that is the cathedral and you have to laugh at absurd rococco style. The stylish areas that denote the mosque are far more elegant. Likewise the mihrab is utterly beautiful. It's covered in... More

Very impressive architecture. The arches go on "forever". Courtyard full of orange trees with fragrant blossoms. Some of the repairs appear to have been done cheaply. Still a wonderful experience.
