“Grand Mosque of Cordoba”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

There is so much islamic history there it is fascinating,the original migrab(centre where imama leads sermon from)Quarnic inscriptions on the walls,stunning islamic influence of the era is verywhere to be seen.Sad that the Muslim men had to take their headgear off when enetering,and that we walked with shoes inside

“Go in the morning!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

If you make it before 10 a.m. the entrance is free (check this first because it varies on special days.) This is not just another church. It was hard for my children to keep their mouths closed. They literally walked around with their jaws open trying to fathom the enormity and beauty of the building we were in. We were treated to an organ performance that made the entire experience surreal. The building was originally and clearly built to be a muslim mosque. Once the Spaniards reconquered the area, it was turned into a cathedral. The catholic idolatry superimposed over muslim intricate artwork is as beautiful as it is interesting. Definitely make the trip if you're wondering if it's just another church. It's not.
