The highlight of Cordoba

Not to be missed, although the audioguide is not well organized and maybe confusing a bit. You may wish to have an actual guide, but I don;t know how well informed they will be.

Took fast train on day trip from Malaga to Cordoba (1 hour.) Service bus from outside train station in Cordoba has stop near the old city centre. Take 2 or 3 hours to view the area around the Mesquita. So much to savour. The cafe in tourist shop outside the entry to Mesquita is very good and reasonably priced.For a... More

Wow. After being slightly underwhelmed by the Alhambra in Granada, I was completely overwhelmed by the Mezquita in Cordoba. The scale itself is impressive - rows and rows of over 850 pillars that seem to branch off in all directions, almost as far as the eye can see, with those distinctive red and white stripes on their single or double...

This is the main attraction of Córdoba. You get a an understanding of both the Islamic and Christian civilizations. Although it is sad to see the alternations made to the Islamic part of the mosque,you still get a taste of it on one of the walls.

A mix of Oriental and occidental culture in the same temple. The main room is incredibly wide. My main regret is that it was too late to have a commented visit

It is a magnificent symbol of history through architecture. It is so vast that it overwhelms. While splendidly kept, it reflects drastic perspectives on the sponsor's profile. The audioguides provide more than ample information but would strongly recommend a live knowledgable guided tour to fully appreciate the grandioseness of this site. In fact, repeated prolonged visits should be considered even... More

Very impressive. Beautiful place. It was a mosque and the cathedral was built over it. The architecture still has Arabic influence. You will need a couple of hours for a full visit but it is worth it.

I went to the Mosque as part of a tour and was able to hear about the long history of the building and how it underwent different extensions before arriving in its current form. The arches are amazing and the smaller chapels at one end are filled with extensive iconography and very detailed statues brought in after the Christian reconquest.... More
