Mezquita (Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba)
Originally the site of the Christian Visigoth Church San Vicente dating back to AD 600, the Mezquita (Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba) stands as the city's most proud monument and one of the most exquisite Islamic structures in the Western world. Learn about its rich history while taking in the 850 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite.
 
The Basics
Most city tours make a stop at the popular Mosque–Cathedral of Cordoba. Guided tour options range from an hourlong history tour focused on the cathedral and former mosque to a half-day walking tour with stops at other Cordoba monuments such as the Castle of Catholic Monarchs (Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos) and the ancient synagogue of the Jewish Quarter. Others visit the Mezquita on a day trip from Seville, Granada, or Costa del Sol.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Mezquita is a must-see for history buffs, architecture lovers, and all first-time visitors to Cordoba.
  • Choose a daytime tour, night visit, or entrance to the bell tower.
  • Audio guides are available in several languages, including English, for an extra fee.
  • The cathedral is wheelchair accessible; disabled toilets and wheelchairs are both available.
  • As a functioning holy site, hats and head coverings are not permitted within the cathedral, and visitors should dress appropriately.
 
How to Get There
Located in the heart of Cordoba, you can access the Mezquita via its Orange Tree Courtyard (Patio de los Naranjos), which is free to enter. The easiest way to get there is by taking bus lines 3 or 12 to the Puerta del Puente stop.
 
When to Get There
The Mosque–Cathedral is open daily, and bell tower tours depart every 30 minutes. If you’d like to attend a mass, plan to visit in the morning Monday to Saturday or in the early afternoon Sunday.
 
The Soul of Cordoba
Night visits, officially called The Soul of Cordoba, include an hourlong light and sound show detailing the history and religious significance of the building and its religious art, as well as a tour of the monumental site.

The visit I offer is a visit from a historical and monumental perspective. It is a monument that must be explained, and must be understood for the complexity it offers. We will make a visit in chronological order, from the 8th century to the 18th century. A visit in which I assure that there will be no more than 15 people. In this way we can keep a distance between clients. A quality visit, carried out by accredited and experienced guides. Avoid imitations.
