Fantastic sight and certainly the top sight in the city. Entry is free from 8:30-9:30AM and tour groups are not allowed in until 10. So you can have a much quieter experience if you go early. I got a lot of pictures with no people in them.

I wish I had arranged a private tour as the audio tour was helpful, but not overly informative. Although not as big as the Alhambra, it was almost as impressive.

A must see even for people who are weary of European cathedrals. There is a cost of 8€ per person to enter.

Simply the most astonishing religious monument we have ever visited. Justifies the trip to Córdoba on its own. The architectural and decorative blend of Muslim and Christian traditions is wonderful.

So much history attached to this beautiful building. The arches are so memorable and wonderful that the building when returned to Christianity was not destroyed but integrated. Not to be missed. Certainly good value as three of us could claim Pensionista rate.

Everything. The Moorish design inside gave it a breath taking atmosphere. It is relatively plain interior which we found very spiritual.

The Mezquita is an incredible site to visit. It was worth waiting until 4;30 in the afternoon to go with an English speaking guide who is an official guide offered by the city for a well deserved fee of 10 euros. The mosque is immense and the cathedral inside is beautiful.

If you get there as early as possible (8am on the day I went) then you'll miss the tour busses. I would read up on the architecture of the building before you go. The beauty of the red and white arches is stunning, but the architecture is also fascinating. I can't imagine why anyone would go to Cordoba and not... More
