Bell Tower

The Bell Tower stands at 54 meters and is the tallest building in the city. It was originally a Muslim minaret which was later converted into a bell tower after the Christian conquest. While it was operating well until 1589; after an earthquake struck, the entire structure had to be built from scratch which is how the new tower was formed. Today, it continues to be one of the most visited attractions in Spain and plays a crucial role in representing the image of Cordoba.

Court of Oranges

The bittersweet oranges back then were used to make jams, medicines and even perfumes. Today, about a hundred vast orange trees stand tall and dense, covering the gardens with cool shade.  

Prayer Hall

The Prayer Hall at the Mezquita Cordoba is a classic example of Moorish Architecture. Tall columns made of granite, onyx, and marble held up red-and-white double-tiered arches, dividing the room into multiple aisles for prayer time. These aisles, or naves, led directly to the Mihrab.

At the Mezquita Cordoba, the Mihrab displays rich decor and is surrounded by a royal Maqsura, a spot specifically designated for the Emir to pray.
