What to expect

Discover the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba and witness the incredible monument symbol of the history of Córdoba. This cathedral, built on the old Great Mosque of the Andalusian city, is the perfect synthesis between Islamic and Christian art and culture, making it a truly artistic gem not to be missed when visiting Córdoba.

Be awed by the spectacular beauty of the Cathedral on a 1-hour guided tour of one of the most visited monuments in Spain. Conserving the decorative style of an Islamic mosque, construction of the magnificent monument began in the 8th century. Later extensions vastly increased its size, turning it into the second biggest mosque in the world before it became a Catholic cathedral. Venture inside to discover a forest of columns and elegant double arches, and admire the ornate maqsura mihrab (apse) along with other decorative highlights.

You will be led by an official guide who will help build a full picture of this unforgettable landmark building. Learn more about the history, art, and decoration of the Mosque-Cathedral as well as its significance to the city of Córdoba.
