We took a day trip on a Sunday to Cordoba from Seville with a visit to the Mezquita at the top of our plans for the day (pro tip: because the mosque has a Catholic cathedral within it, built at a later date than the mosque, Mass on Sundays prevents tourists from visiting the Cathedral area until the afternoon). Little did we know that a special Catholic ritual that involving moving several Macy's float-sized brightly gilded replicas of the Stations of the Cross would shut the Mezquita down early!

What's a history/culture geek to do? Rearrange her travel plans, of course! So we returned to the train station and re-ordered our tickets so that we could return to Cordoba the next day JUST to see the Mezquita (another pro tip: just about every OTHER site in Cordoba is closed on Mondays, making the Mezquita VERY crowded then). But even if you are pressed for time during your holiday, the Mezquita is a MUST. SEE. SITE. Constructed over centuries (the newest part of the mosque is from the 10th c.: look for the signatures of the Muslim stone carvers who made the columns!), the edifice is vast. During the Reconquista, the Catholics respected the beauty and majesty of the Mezquita enough to build their Cathedral in the center of the building and within the perimeter -- and for centuries, the two architectural styles (and faiths) have met, thought not exactly blended, in this single massive edifice. I's a breathtaking experience to visit and must be seen to understand how vast the scope and how truly spectacular it is.

We had entered this attraction as part of a 4 hour English language walking tour. This was an excellent way to see many interesting spots in the the old town and skip the lines in the Alcarzar and the mosque. The immensity, decoration and colour of the mosque has to be beheld. Made up in 4 stages of time, it held 50 thousand worshipers and the transition to a Catholic church was respectfully done.

This is the essential attraction of Córdoba and it’s beautiful! Try to get their early to avoid crowds or during an off time. This bizarre Church within the Grand Mosque of Moorish Spain does not lose the beauty of the moorish architecture and is a great history lesson.

This is a magnificent Cathedral and well worth paying the 10 Euro entrance fee. We spent over two hours in there.

We visited the Mezquita early on a Monday morning to miss the crowds and felt that it was the perfect time to go. There was no queue to get in and it was not crowded inside which was nice. The decor inside is beautiful to see in person and we were lucky to see the procession alters for the St Rafael celebration.
