I've seen my share of churches, cathedrals and so on but I had never seen anything like this mosque/cathedral. The mosque is a unique structure to say the least. The sheer size of it is mind boggling. The cathedral inside is so nicely done, it is awe inducing. Simply awesome. A must see.

The place to be in Córdoba! You cannot miss it. I really enjoyed the ambience and the history. If you can: visit it at night. And all around you will find loads of places to eat afterwards!!!

We visited as part of a day trip. The guide was really informative and knowledgeable and made the visit come alive. He kept the tour moving and was able to answer any questions that were put to him. Not sure our teenager was fully engrossed though as not really his sort of thing. Well worth a visit despite the long... More

I came to Cordoba to find out more about history and how cultures enhance and enrich one another. Mezquita is so unique because of that blend. Spirit of its rich history is firmly held within its walls. It is worth to see it from above. From the tower as well see an unique view from across the bridge from the... More

The massacre was stopped just in time: they did not destroy all of it in the XVth Century. You will see one of the largest mosques, today cathedral. The 800+ pilars and their double arches are impressively well preserved and the geometrical alignments will give you chills. It is a wonderful place to visit!

Read the blurb and then just visit with an open mind. A truly marvellous archietectural feat and all the better for visiting and spending time there.

Just about every city has a mezquita (mosque) and an alcazar (fortress castle). This one is quite large and detailed, with a courtyard and a cathedral within.

Lonely Planet describes it as "perfection rendered in stone". The blend of Christian/Muslim architecture is unlike anything we've seen before. A must see if anywhere near this region & interested in History. "Began as a small Christian temple before Muslims conquered Spain in 711...it then had a sharing arrangement with Christians which lasted until 784...Grand Mosque of Córdoba then built...Returned...

Get in to the Mezquita for free at 8.30 in the morning on weekdays (not sure about weekend times). It's a real gem set in the middle of Cordoba and certainly worth taking about an hour or so to take it all in.

I'm not a religous person but was blown away by the atmosphere and beauty of this place Expected to be in there for 30 minutes but ended up spending over two hours 30 minutes and could have stayed there longer
