This amazing monument was built, modified and re-constructed in over 1000 years. It is really amazing and it’s a must see in Andaluzia. There is a lot of history inside... Don’t miss it!

Have been here three times and it is just as stunning each time. Cordoba is a very pretty city but over run with tourists and shops selling silver jewelry. This is a culture visit well worth a day trip. Go early before the bus loads pack it. Also is free between 8:30 and 9:30.

It's difficult to dislike the Mezquita. You can get into the gardens of the complex for free at any time during opening hours but to enter the internal spaces you'll require a ticket. (However if you go early in the morning, between 8-9am, entrance is free, but you have to be out by 9am. Those hours might change during summer.) Inside it's like a historic liquorice all-sort, wonderful zebra-painted arches create a 3D effect, one lined up after the other for the entire space. When the organist plays a tune it fills the mosque with an eerie atmosphere. Starting as a Mosque of the vast Umayyad Caliphate, it was converted to a Christian cathedral when captured by Ferdinand III of Castille, but now it is a secular building purely for historical/museum purposes.

We visited the Mezquita Cathedral on the "Soul of Cordoba" visit. The 9:30pm event is pre-bookable online and the number of participants is limited. The result is suberb. The automatic audio guide works a treat and the ever changing lighting of the deeply dark building, highlighted features wonderfully. Most importantly, the small number of people in the building contrasted with the alarming numbers we saw in the Mezquita courtyard the following morning.
