An exceptional experience the cathedral inside the former arabian Mosque. The cathedral creates an opulent kitsch and dominant aspect, impression.

After a trip to the Jewish Quarter we had to pay respects to this great mosque with its spectacular dome. The sensation of standing still at any position of this vast building is to allow the sensation of perspective and beauty weave its magic. It's...More

You must come and visit this sacred place. If you arrive at 8.30 am you'll be able to access for free and enjoy the beauty of the place not to crowded, and you can stay to the 9.30 mass. Make sure to wear a top...More

Visited the Mezquita late morning, couple of way to get your tickets either at the ticket office or by one of the ticket machines..we also opted for the audio guide €3.50. Once inside just take a moment to get your bearings with the audio guide/map...More

This is the reason you come to Córdoba. It dominates the historic centre and the skyline of the old city. It is a quite magnificent place which the introduction of a Christian church within the mosque didn't destroy. I went on Saturday morning at 8.30....More

So glad we went here!! First of all the lines are really not that horrible at least not when we where there. It's very impresive and there is something to see as far as the eye can wonder. The architecture is one you wont soon...More

Wonderful architecture and so interesting to see two religions side by side. The arches are breathtaking, and it is so cool in the heat of the day.

Well worth a visit. Huge and very impressive. Some churches are just full of religious artefacts, this has that, but the most impressive thing is the architecture. Oh, the ticket machines don't take cards or €50 notes, ended up using the man at the kiosk!

What a fabulous place. The atmosphere inside is so tranquil and peaceful. Thank goodness it wasn't destroyed during the Conquest. Instead they integrated the new Cathedral in the middle of the old Mosque. Photos are allowed (even with flash), but no tripods. I really enjoyed...More

If you arrive between 8.30 and 9.20. You can enter for free as they are cleaning the Cathedral. At 9.20 prompt you are shown the door! Fantastic time to visit as there are fewer visitors.
If you go at 8.30 and want to go up the bell tower as well can you do the bell tower after the 9.30 exit requirement or do you have to do both in that time (in which case I would do it on a separate day). Don't mind the entrance fee but the thought of it being quieter appeals. Also we are here the first two days of the annual fair (Sat/Sun). Do you think that it will be quieter generally over these days with people attending the fair

I visited both on separate days. Went up the bell tower on Sunday @10:00 am. The enterance for the bell tower has a separate ticket.

If you enter Mezquita during mass from 8:30 to 9:30 will that allow you to get a full experience of the whole cathedral? I ask because I don't mind the entrance fee and like the idea of going when it isn't as crowded but I wouldn't want to limit my experience of the place. Also, if I do the hour is there a way for me to get a ticket to the bell tower afterwards? Thanks.

I'm inclined to think you can get the full experience in an hour. The experience of scale is one that hits you very quickly and unless you want to study the cathedral or the Moorish arches in fine detail an hour is probably... More
