Holiday Travel Guide
Cordoba Mosque which includes street scenes as well as a large group of people

Stand in awe of a magnificent mosque, today a cathedral, which combines an array of religious architectural styles to create an astonishingly beautiful landmark.

The Córdoba Mosque is one of the most impressive religious monuments in Spain, a dazzling mixture of Christian and Islamic architecture in the heart of the city’s Old Town. Within this Catholic cathedral marvel at halls decorated with hundreds of colorful arches, spacious courtyards lined with orange trees and Gothic chapels.

Experience a building that dates back to Córdoba’s golden age. The mosque was first built in the 8th century under the rule of Abd al-Rahman, during a time when Andalucía was one of the most prosperous and pioneering regions of Europe. Head to the center of the complex to find the cathedral, which was built by Christian rulers during the Renaissance era.

Start exploring the complex in the Orange Tree Courtyard. This attractive leafy square sits beneath the shadow of the 177-foot (54-meter) bell tower. Enter through the 14th-century archway, where you can find the ticket office. Climb the tower for your first encounter of the mosque’s mixture of Islamic and Christian architectural details.

Walk reverently through the prayer hall, a vast space that emphasizes the communal nature of worship. Red-and-white arches cover an airy hall designed to create a horizontal, not vertical, room that can host a huge number of worshippers.

In the center of the complex lies the cathedral, which took almost 250 years to build. Admire details such as mahogany pulpits decorated with ornately carved lions and eagles.

Introduce your children to the wonders of the mosque. Discounted admission applies for kids. The mosque-cathedral is open daily but is used for services on Sunday mornings and during various religious festivals throughout the year.

Metered parking is available near the mosque or you can ride a bus to one of several stops near the building. Walk to the Córdoba Mosque from other sights in the historic center of Córdoba, including the Alcazar of Córdoba, which is less than 10 minutes away on foot.
