Guided visit to the Umayyad Mosque and the old medina around it in Cordoba. Our UNESCO Heritage specialist guide will provide with histórical information into the different areas of the Umayyad Mosque of Cordoba and ‘medina’ around it.

It is the most important mosque in the Islamic West, and the second largest in the world in its time. The mosque was founded by Abderrahman I and was enlarged with the great emirs and caliphs.

Today it is the Cathedral of Córdoba, but it still reserves the name of Mezquita.

This journey will take us through the history of Al Andalus and his splendid spiritual and philosophical heritage. It was here in Andalusia where the Greek onthology harmonized with the Islamic metaphysics. The ground where was the spiritual capital of half of the world population while the rest of Europe was drowned in persecution and occultism.

The purity and brightness of the Andalusi spiritual legacy is a settled path (sirata) to our inner self and to grasping the existence of God.

First of all, we will get a brief but consistent introduction to the historical events that took place for the eight centuries that Al Andalus ruled the West since the Tariq Bin Ziad first stepped in Iberica until the last Berber Kingdom, the Nasrid from Granada, resisted the Castilian Crown reconquest.

Our main purpose is to revive important figures from Al Andalus in the scientific fields and through their example restore the memory and greatness of Al Andalus.

Amazing ... No other word can describe the grandeur of the mosque. It was disappointing to see the sign that advises people that only Christian prayer is allowed. It's a bit of a shame; Christians can pray at the Aya Sophia in Istanbul.
