The mosque cathedral in Cordoba is the most amazing building I have ever seen. No word, no photo can do it justice. It is a cathedral built in the middle of a mosque. Its massive size of
25 000sq m with its 860ish marble columns is most impressive. The combination of Moorish and Renaissance styles is just unique. Keep a few hours to visit this spectacular place and to admire the many works of art from famous Spanish artists. We parked, free, on the other side of the old bridge from which we could see the impressive baroque façade of the cathedral.

This is one of those places which when you see it you will not believe it. There is a Catholic cathedral in the center of this mosque which was created to prove to the Spanish people that the Moors where chased out of the country for the last time. The Moors were causing the shop keepers from buying things to sell for fear that the Moors would invade again and take everything. The economic impact was so great that the cathedral was built to desecrate the mosque and to get the shop keepers to see that the country was under the government's control. Fascinating history.

This cathedral/mosque is an incredible place. The fact that most of the great mosque has been left intact and the seamless way the cathedral has been incorporated in is impressive. One of the most impressive place that i have visited in Spain, or for that matter anywhere else...

To me this mosque/cathedral was the most beautiful site we saw in Spain. The mosque area was quiet and so very beautiful. Then in the middle all of it the Catholic Church areas seemed to try to outdo their surroundings.
