Córdoba, a city in the Andalusia area of Spain, is one of the few cities in the world that has a near-exact antipodal (opposite geographically) city – Hamilton, New Zealand. But, what makes it really famous is " mesquita", the mosque built by the Arab and preserved by the Christians as a church. As such the entrance is quite ordinary... More

This place is like an Alice in Wonderland scene - lots of shapes, colors, & textures combined in fantasy dreams. WOW! No photo can do it justice. You just have to visit. And allow at least 2-3 hours. The mosque portion dates from 784 a.d., the oldest mosque in Europe. The Renaissance cathedral built in the middle of the mosque... More

This place is rich in history! Originally built as a mosque & later expanded when the Christians took over. I loved walking under the red & white arches & felt the past reach out to me reminding me of different lives lived. The marble is particularly stunning as well as the Islamic designs. I wasn't so fussed with some of... More

The Cathedral is stunning and not expensive to enter. There is an ambiance of time standing still in this building. The decor provokes profound though into that construction, cultural influence and history.

The building cannot be appreciated without some understanding of the history. The audio guide was helpful in that respect. Although the there was a lot of people in the building there were places where you could escape and gain some of the spirituality of the building.

This building is perhaps the most interesting piece of history contained in a single building in the world. An ancient church that was razed with an enormous mosque built on top that eventually had a huge Cathedral built in the center. I recommend visiting on Sunday in the morning as the crowd was light and then staying for Mass at... More

I had a 3-day trip in Cordoba and it was all marvelous. The beautiful streets of Cordoba were lovely but the Mezquita Cathedral was one magnificent gem that I spent hours admiring and visiting. The architecture is superb. I definitely recommend it to anyone passing through Cordoba to visit the Mezquita.
