   One walks into the Mosque/Cathedral through this area.  We went when there were no oranges or blossoms, I am told though that to visit during  the orange blossom season  is very special, as the beautiful fragrance of the blossoms heightens the lovely  experience.

This is the courtyard outside the Mosque of Cordoba and is a pleasant place to walk and wait for tickets. It is usually quite busy but worth a stroll around the orange trees before netering the Mosque.

We were lucky enough to be able to visit this wonderful patio on a daily basis before the hoardes descended. It is peaceful relaxing and tranquil. Being there in May allowed us to experience the scent of orange blossom in this enclosed space. Having both...More
