The Mezquita de Cordoba was amazing! It was incredible to stand and soak in all of the history. I was here in March and enjoyed myself especially since it was not too crowded and I could take my time to look around without it being too noisy. Definitely stop here!

* I was here in March 2008

The old mosque has a vast footprint with a great atmosphere. The arches go on and on. It's cool and dark in there. I can imagine in the searing heat of Summer it must be bliss. The courtyard to the side of the building is full of orange trees, water features and black and white decorative pebble embedded pathways. The whole thing is a treat. The courtyard is free, the mosque is €8 pp entrance. A little steep perhaps but you will never forget it.

We went at opening time (830), when tickets are free, but the guards kicked us out for mass by about 915am...Would still recommend going first thing in the morning, when it tends to be less busy. This is obviously a not-to-be-missed site in Cordoba.

If there was one thing to do in Cordoba, it's this. Amazing history of an amazing building, or should I say buildings. Each ruler added it's extension under the Maures, and then the Spanish kings also added their parts. So a beautiful mix of Islamic and Christian art.

Only negative point: rudeness of ticketing office and audio-guide office.

This is one of the things I've been dying to see since I first learned what it was. The juxtaposition of the Catholic new against the Arabic old is very interesting, and the unique architecture is very interesting to look at. There's a few Jesus-under-Arabic-installments that are particularly interesting, and all of the artifacts here are breathtaking as well. Great. You might want to get a tour, though--it'll probably bring the place more to life.
