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.

If you are a romantic person, if you search for tranquil, calm and peaceful rest in nature and antique surrounding, Granada with its Mezquita Mayor is the right place for you to spend the time. Go there with your beloved one, stroll along the streets, share the night under the stars of Spanish heaven.

Super unique ... i dont think there will be any place all over the world that will look like it. It is a must see. I was staying at Malaga and went to Granada just to visit it & it is definitely worth it

I think that you can feel the atmosphere in this place. What a history and a gorgeous place inside and out day or night. I love to get up for early morning when you can get in for free for an hour. Beats the crowds!

I left the crowded and noisy Mirador de San Nicolás and found this wonderful Mezquita where I sat in it's quaint gardens and was able to see the incredible view of Granada.

we could not visit the mosque since we were not part of a group but wandering in the gardens is really worth it. The view on the Alhambra really is gorgeous and the atmosphere much quieter than at the mirador San Nicolas. I had a feeling of time traveling since you can perfectly imagine yourself during in this gardens a... More
