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.

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... More

La Mezquita is a must see in Spain. I had been before but still made a 5 hour round trip to take my partner to see it. A pity about the surfeit of catholic statues etc around the edges, but the original Moorish part is fantastic. Well worth the visit, second time around.

For over 2000 Cordoba has been an important city in Spain. There is evidence the original Iberian people occupied the land around the Guadalquivir river. Then came the Romans, followed by the Visigoths, then the Iberians once more, invaded by and conquered by the Arabs. The Arabs for centuries ruled the lands around Cordoba and used the city as the...

Well worth the entrance fee, but if you come early you can visit for free and avoid the crowds. Absolutely breathtaking architecture and you just can't help looking around with your jaw on the floor - well I couldn't! I can't think of anywhere in the world that matches this building and on such a grand scale.
