    The Mezquita is amazing! A must see. If you get there early (between 8-9:30) you can get in for free, after that is 8 euro. Enjoy the gardens if it's not too hot outside

    10 euros per person for general admission. Very cool to see the mix of Muslim and Catholic architecture in one cathedral. It only takes about an hour to see the whole thing.

    The most beautiful building of Iberia, glory of Al-Andalus. Visiting at the end of the day means avoiding queues, delighting in the lemon tree yard and enjoying the sunset through the stained glass.

    2014: free entrance from 8.30 to 9.20 aprox. They'll kick you out for the mass and at 10 it's 8,5€. No student discount. Audio guide 3€. Nevertheless, it's a must see once in a lifetime at least.

    One of the most stunning and interesting cultural sites I've ever visited! Make sure to see the mosaic wall gifted from Byzantium.

    Undoubtedly beautiful, the visually incredible Muslim installations are outnumbered by rather gaudy Christian decor: a real surprise. A reminder of history of conquest :( but very impressive overall.

    A must for every Andalucia visitor. Remarkable blend of moorish and the later added baroque styles. Place of self reflection.

    Free entry between 8:30-9:30am on Saturday mornings. No tour groups permitted during this time so it's not crowded either!

    This place is amazing. Lots of pictures to take. Take your time to see everything at your own pace. I liked the Mesquita better than Alhambra in Granada.

    Truely amazing piece of architecture and history. Take an audioguide or join the free walking tour before to get all the historic facts about the city.

    A gorgeous cathedral and one that is significant in its Islamic architecture. A sight that is not to be missed if you are in Andalucia!

    Skip the lines and buy your ticket from the (cash-only) automatic machines to the left. Possibly the most beautiful religious building I've visited.

    Most worthy landmark in Córdoba, a strange, incongruous place of worship that was a mosque before it was converted into a cathedral. Its Moorish arches are iconic.

    Be prepared for a unique blend of ancient Moorish culture and Christian prosperity. One of the most stunning pieces of religious architecture to be found in western Europe.

    The documentation provided is pretty oriented to excuse the erection of the basilic while the Mosque is absolutly the masterpiece!

    Was a mosque, now a cathedral and a museum. Things are quite complicated but this worship place can make it all clear for all!

    You need tickets to enter, they only sell those in kiosks, so the lines move fast, but there are many separate ones.

    The first hour in the morning is banned to tourists groups (yeah!) and ... free. Great to enjoy it in silence.

    The place is full of tourists, lines everywhere. The audioguides are no longer free and are sometimes closed. They have radioguides for groups.

    The Mezquita is regarded as perhaps the most accomplished monument of the Umayyad Caliphate of Córdoba.

    Caution with the Bishop: The flyer tells Muslims just made some graffities on the Cathedral walls to turn it into a Mosque.
