As other reviews have said, this is a mosque where prayers are performed, which means that visitors do not have access to all areas of the mosque. The gardens are pretty, with a gorgeous view of the Albayzin and the Alhambra. Definitely worth a visit, especially as it's so close to the Mirador de San Nicolás. This mosque was inaugurated...

This is a mosque where regular prayers are performed. It is small but nice in Albyzine, just in front you can see the Alhambra.

The Mezquita is an amazing place to visit. It is an ancient mosque with a cathedral in the centre! It is hard to describe to do it justice, it has to be seen so get yourselves there on a visit! We have never seen anywhere like it, there are about 800 arches inside and the decoration is unbelievable in both... More

The Mezquita is another example of the skillful building expertise of the Moors. The Mezquita features the former mosque, now with a 16th century church rising up from the middle. Cordoba was in the heart of the cultural capital of the Moors and rivaled at one time Baghdad and Constantinople (Istantbul). The Mezquita has great Islamic artwork woven into the... More

Worth a visit for the views. There are certain opening hours for visitors but the masjid is open for Muslims at any time to offer prayers.

Fabulous historical site & worth coming to Cordoba for. Its very unique, & in my opinion unparalleled in similarity. It met & exceeded my expectations, as this site was the only reason i came to the city & it does not disappoint.

It is beautiful. Get a guide or an audio guide, but do take the time to learn the history and sit on the benches and soak up the art and intent of every ruler who made his mark on this sacred place.

You feel like you are in an Escher print as the arches extend in all directions seemingly endlessly! Then right in the middle they built a cathedral. The walled city of Cordoba is quaint and maze like. Be prepared to get lost!

A mosque that was so beautiful the catholic conquerors could not tear it down. A church was built within the Mosque. It was my first time in a Mosque and I learned so much history. Besides the beautiful surroundings, I enjoyed the dual spirituality of the building.
