This is a once-in-a-lifetime visit, one of the most stunning and moving tours ever. This should be one of the great wonders of the world. It is an unforgettable sight.

What a place, absolutely outstanding. We couldn't believe the detail and size of it. Beautiful in every way. Outside is free to work around but it's more than worth the €10 entrance.

Tips first:
It is free from 8.30 until 9.20, at which time they ask everyone leave. if you want to get back in, the doors open at 10am, but you will be first inline to buy tickets. There are two separate ticket lines: one for cash and one for credit cards so dont stand in the wrong line.. I would recommend at least 2 hours, just to take it all in. Cost is 10 EUR for entrance and 4 EUR for audio guide. It is still an active place of worship, so dressing modestly would be respected.

An Islamic mosque that is also a Christian (Catholic) church. Not something you come across everyday. Exquisite, fascinating, un describable architecture. Rows and rows of columns, with a different view depending on where you stand. The christian influence is around the perimeter the complex, with chapels and places of prayer. the centre is where the congregation sit to hear the service. A tour guide is a must, to understand the history to gain a better appreciation of the Mezquita. Absolutley do not miss this experience, it will stay with you for a long time after you leave.

Superb experience and why you come to Cordoba. Amazing interior with its hundreds of Arab columns like a forest and atmosphere accentuated by the darkness. Also mixed with Gothic and the choir spoils the view somewhat. Free 8.30am to 9.30 am Monday ti Friday.

While this site is the main reason to come to Cordoba, you'll be glad you did as the narrow, winding alleyways, courtyards and old buildings are also a good reason. However, the Mezquita is the highlight. Basically a mosque with a cathedral built in the center. The cathedral is beautiful, but it's the mosque that's overpowering with its hundreds of arches. It's difficult to stop taking pictures from every corner and from every angle. Mesmerizing.

The inside is stunning but as we are both adventurous, nature loving individuals, we walked away feeling a bit let down. If you are fascinated by history and religious architecture, you should definitely go! We are still glad we went, but we got much more enjoyment walking in the Jewish quarter.

We did the bell tower, which was worth the 2 euros. The views from the top of the city are incredible. Beware that only a certain number of people are alllowed up at once so you will be given a time slow.

On a side note, there didn’t appear to be any lockers and despite the website saying no backpacks, we got in with our small day backpack without an issue.

We've both been wanting to see this for a long time and it didn't disappoint. Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful and atmospheric. Go early to miss the worst of the crowds and you will get the feel of the place far better. Stunning! Take time to absorb it all

If you dont enjoy visiting endless historic buildings then make this your last as it is excellent.
It is large inside but the mass of islamic style arches creates a mesmeric space.
It is full of different religious influence and it all sits in harmony.Not competing but complimentary and each era is preserved rather than replaced.
The orange garden in front of the building must be restful when it is very crowded but for us in October there was plenty of space.
The building sits amongst shops restaurants and the life of Cordoba.It is full of representations of the saint but never overwhelmed with the normal ostentatious display of gold objects.
You can be persuaded to arrive early for cheaper tickets but the full price is worth it.There is museum style display of artefacts inside but I found that locating quiet corner and just marvelling at the symmetry of the inside is very rewarding

We planned to stop in Cordoba just to visit the Mezquita on the way from Madrid to Granada. We didn't book the ticket in advance as we heard it's big and the line is not bad. Not the case! On the day we went, the tower climb was full until late evening (after our bus schedule) and the line to the church was so long, we got to stat inside for 20 minutes.

Like any other major tourist sites in Andalucia, I think it's safer to book ahead if your schedule is tight.
