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

One of its kind. Where else can you see a combined mosque and cathedral in the world in such a large scale and beautifully decorated candy cane colored arches all around. It's a majestic Mezquita.

Impressive Mezquita, we spent 3 hours there exploring. Go early because it gets very busy later on. It's worth having an audio guide

The sheer size and beauty of the Mezquita can only be experienced from inside. The scale, design and quality of the craftsmanship in the building are memorable. A definite highlight of a visit to Córdoba.

Not much I can say about this place that hasn't been said already. Make sure you go with a guide that will give you factual historical events and not a biased one. A lot of Islamic and Christian heritage here.

interior is really worth a 2-3 hour visit. great pillars, history of additions. side chapels and main altar very nice. audioguide is a life saver. need more places to sit and listen to history. this is the main reason to visit Cordoba.

We were there at 08.30, when they opened, and it was well worth it, as you were able to see the whole size of the place. Tried to go back for the night visit, but they did not open up. Perhaps because it was St....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
