After entering in through the gateway to the courtyard with orange trees, we were delighted to find that the queue only had four people in it (not like in Seville!). As soon as we entered the building I was stunned - what a wonderful feeling...More
This Cathedral built in a vast mosque which served the largest City in Western Europe is one of the wonders of the World. Guides are available. We had the wonderful Carmen, recommended by Hotel Palacio Bailio. Returned the next day. Lots of tourists of course....More
I've wanted to visit the Mesquita for several years. I was not disappointed! I didn't buy an advance ticket, €10 plus a €4 audio guide were perfect. I was able to wander at my leisure once inside and really take time to soak in the...More
The Mezquita is worth a trip around the world to see. Do whatever you have to do -- GO. Arriving between 8:30 and 9:30 am gives you entry for free and a bit (although not much) of a break from noisy crowds.
What a place! Well organised. None of the queuing that blights Seville. Good audio guide, easy to use. But what a stunning place, shared over the centuries by Christians and Muslims alike and the place boasts both!
After visiting the mezguita several times during past decades it is good to re-affirm that the charm is still there. The crowds have grown and selfie takers are all around. But still this can be the same calm place. Close the buzz outside your head...More

Before you go, read the novel "The Hand of Fatima" by Ildefonso Falcones. It added considerably to my perception of the Mezquita. Knowing more about its history through this novel, I was moved to tears when I entered that bizarre, huge, fantastic building.

Help with Cordoba day trip (2 Replies)
After reading reviews on paid guided day trips to Cordoba, we would like to do this on our own. Can anyone help us with logistics of taking a train or bus to Cordoba and visiting the Mezquita-Cathedral de Cordoba. We would be visiting on Oct 22 for the 10 am opening. What to do after visiting Mezquita for the remainder of day before returning to Sevilla late afternoon / early evening? Thanks

For trains: https:/…Buying.Renfe.Tickets.Online.html For Cordoba: Use Booking.com to look for hotels and apartments in The Real Heart of Cordoba. For those making a day trip to Cordoba, the train station does not have luggage lockers but the bus station beside it has luggage lockers. A taxi to the Mezquita will cost only about 6 euros because the distance from the train station is only 1.8 km. The best sights in Cordoba: 1. Mezquita/Cathedral - The most important architectural...More
Mezquita Cathedral de Cordoba - tickets available? (4 Replies)
Has anyone been recently who can let me know if tickets are difficult to get? Many past posts say it is impossible to get tickets, as they limit the number of visitors each day now. Is it true that you need to book with a tour company to get tickets? We will be there in two weeks. Thanks. Also, is it reasonable to plan a train ride from Madrid, stop in Cordoba to see Cathedral, then head to Seville for a day trip... or is that way too much for one day?

You do not need to prebook the Cathedral/Mezquita. The queue is very short and I have not had to wait for more than 5 minutes.
