A visit to Cordoba cannot be complete with visiting “Cordoba Cathedral / Mosque”. We tried to visit on the afternoon of the first day we arrived but it was close for a planned function. We came the second day at 09:15 in the morning and we were allowed to enter free of charge. I am not sure if there is... More

Where else in the world can you find a cathedral rising out of the heart of a mosque? Your are taken from the bright Andalusian sunshine into the dark formal repetition of the mosque columns and arches. You wander until at the heart of the mosque you find a cathedral rising to its heaven. Breathtaking conflict or harmony.... You decide?

A brilliant place to visit - a fusion of Christian and Islam. Fantastically interesting historically, but also surely a metaphor for the world in our troubled times.

If you visit only one place in Cordoba this should be it. The interior is breathtaking. The centre is a wonderful Cathedral with the outer parts consisting of red and white arches dating back to about 987 when the building was a Mosque. You can easily spend half a day in this beautiful building.

It doesn't matter how many photos or videos that you have seen prior to visiting the Great Cathedral and Mosque- you will just be blown away with its beauty. Make sure that you allow enough time to soak up the atmosphere.

After what seemed like upwards of an hour, I finally located the Trip Advisor site for this attraction. The actual website is www.catedraldecordoba.es (I have the brochure in my hand! It says "La Catedral de Cordoba") It should have been easier. More acurately called the "Mosque Cathedral" tody, it melds the elements of the two warring religions into what is... More

This is an amazing Mosque and Cathedral. What a feat over 200 years to build a magnificent cathedral inside a mosque and keep the loveliness of the mosque One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have with unique carvings and paintings and pipe organ. Amazing the mosque goest back to 1000 AD--so so old and well preserved. Don't miss it... More
