Create an itinerary including Iglesia Catedral de Córdoba
Right next to the city's main plaza, Iglesia Catedral de Córdoba features a mish-mash of architectural styles owing to its long construction process. Begun in the 16th century, the cathedral did not see completion until nearly two centuries later, and displays Romanesque, Baroque, and Neoclassical features, among others. Visit the iconic building and admire its stately exterior, complete with arched entryways and two squat bell towers. Head inside and you'll find its vaulted interior decorated with large amounts of golden accents and a range of intricate religious artwork, painted by local son Emilio Caraffa. Put Iglesia Catedral de Córdoba and other Cordoba attractions into our Cordoba trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Some of the most iconic pictures of Spain come from inside the Catedral. This Moorish Mosque and Catholic Cathedral are world famous for their beauty. The Red and white alternating stone arches are...

  • It was nice to have the cathedral by Plaza San Martin, although I thought the other churches in the city have better interiors. And this one is just reconstructed... so it looks a bit new as compared....  more

  • The most in architectural design. A Beauty of a temple. As a parishioner it makes me happy to see something like this. Conserved. The peace that one achieves when entering and being amazed by the surroundings and seeing how ancient this Cathedral is and how well preserved it is. Thank you for the maintenance that is a pride How Catholic.
  • It is beautiful, it seemed very pretty to me, although a little small compared to the one in La Plata. Everything is gold in color and the paintings on the ceiling are impressive. Although whenever I enter these places I feel very bad for all the people who live deceived by the church, like the nuns who sang, who dedicate their entire lives to a lie. It caught my attention that someone took the exact same photo as me.
  • The cathedral is beautiful and the masses fill your soul with peace, just like when you enter the premises.
  • Excellent place to pray, meditate and have a time of relaxation and personal time of closeness with God
  • Spectacular. Maintenance, lighting, everything perfect!
