  • The gardens are impressive although the weather was gray and misty, and the grounds were less attractive than would have been on a sunny day. The interior is under renovation and there is not much to ...  more »
  • Simply spectacular, the interior of the mosque is completely beautiful with its columns, arches and repetitive geometry, the area of the mihrab is completely fascinating. The glob of Christian architecture in the Center quite disfigures and the entrance is very expensive, but worth it, much.

  • Absolutely breathtaking. Must be seen. Go at quiet time 10am or 4.00pm. 10 euros. Free 8.30 am. When you enter start at right hand side and move right to the bottom before going left. It is huge.  more »

  • The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is totally awesome! It is free to view every morning from 8:30 to 9:30 am (and some times 9:20) do not be surprised or offended when you are kicked out on or a little before 9:30am. We went 2 days in a row and could have gone more day easily - - - maybe next time. ;-) Worth saving the 9 euros each -- cost of entrance. But, I also think - if you have the budget available, then it is worth paying full price! Amazing place and a testament to Christian observance and tolerance..... maybe too much. ;-) A must see!
  • An amazing sight from the inside, unlike any other structure i have seen till now. Combined with fascinating history and beautiful surroundings, this place is a must visit when in Cordoba or Andalucia in general. Tickets cost €10 per adult which feels a bit too much given there is nothing else to do inside (bell tower entry is a separate €2). My only major gripe was lack of light and information displays inside. If strong light is bad for the structure, maybe a few well placed indirect lights could help illuminate the arches better and allow visitors to appreciate it more.
  • Honestly this place is a little overrated. Be well aware of the fact that although it is historically significant, it is probably not the most interesting historical site around. I enjoyed my visit - make sure you buy your ticket from the machine and not the vendor so you don't waste your time - but it seemed somehow lacking energy (and lighting). I don't need to take photos in every venue I visit but this one was exceptionally difficult to get right. There are a multitude of chapels, murals and sculptures in this church but I think the lack of structures leaves the experience wanting.
  • It is essential and impressive. Totally recommended. A great catch, on Tuesday mornings they let you in for the first hour and a half for free. Before, once you entered you could enjoy this impressive mixture of religions and good taste, with no time limit, however now, after that hour and a half, they throw you out. Very bad!!!!
  • A wonderful monument to the complex history of Spain. If you're in Cordoba for an entire day, I really recommend going twice - once in the morning and once in the evening. They have special nighttime guided tours once or twice a week which are really quite special. Parts of it do feel rushed (you can't just wander around at your own pace like daytime visits) but the lighting and audioguide are awesome.
