Since childhood I had wanted to see the Mezquita ... suffice it to say that it exceeded all my expectations. I had NO idea there was a large catholic church attached to it. This is simply a MAGICAL place.

We visited this amazing structure today as part of a group and were completely blown away with what it is and how it was built and the history associated with it over the centuries.
You have to see it to believe it. It is massive and the architecture is undescribable, fantastic place to visit.
We were lucky as the guide we had was most knowledgeable and explained everything he could but it was a bit of brain overload as it is impossible to take it all in.
If you are in the area please go and see it for yourself as you won’t be disappointed.

Nice, impressive, a little boring after some time. They put a christian church in an Arabic monument. That gives an other feeling but I'm not sure if it's the best combination. Don't forget to walk around the little paths...

Visited this historical town with my family during hot sizzling summer in a place which was all the time in my list to travel. Cordoba, a great town of the past and the fantastic mosque whch was later converted into a Christian church had given me the nostalgic feelings about the Muslim and Arab civilization's past in the southern Europe
. Most amazing place for a muslims of the world and people of various faiths as well, also with a traveller stand point fantasizing how mulsims used to visiting this mosque five times a day and offering their five compulsory prayers in a congregation behind the muslim prayer leader or Imam while standing in a neatly laid down rows. This buidling offered both architectural and religiouse glamour. Mosque was one of the early mosques in Spain or Andalusia which offered an icon for the rising power of muslims in the world and also the sense of glamor how scientifically developed those muslims during those days. Double story arches of the mosque are unique and selection of red and light pale color look attractive. The only saddest part which I felt during the visit was that mosques had been converted in to a church and muslims were barred to offer prayers. This was the exact opposite of the opennnes and graciousness of the early rulers of Cordoba who allowed praying for christians and muslims in the same building. I think this scenraio still be reversed and both religions should be allowed to pray. Narrow and tight street around the mosques specially in the Jewish Quarter was the treat to watch. Mosque has been greatly altered after the Muslim surrender to the Christain rulers in 1236 which was the most unfortunate part specially the tall and towering minarets that had been completely modified to demsotrate icons of Christian architure and lost its original identification.
