Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba Guided Tour

Meet your guide at the Patio de los Naranjos, next to the bell tower, at the scheduled time and walk straight into the Mosque Cathedral (mezquita-catedral in Spanish) with your official English-speaking guide, skipping the long queues of visitors.

While you marvel at the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, the stunning red and white columns, your guide will explain the following, among many other things:

  • The construction of the Mosque Cathedral began in 785.
  • It was the second largest mosque in the world, after the Great Mosque of Mecca, until the Sultan Ahmed Mosque was built in Turkey.
  • The mosque was consecrated as a Roman Catholic church in the thirteenth century.
  • It was listed a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1984.
  • The impressive building combines Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Umayyad styles.
