About Cordoba Mosque

The Cordoba Mosque, also known as the Mezquita Cathedral, is an architectural marvel that embodies the cultural synthesis of Islamic and Christian influences in Spain. Dating back to the 8th century, this iconic landmark boasts an array of horseshoe arches, intricate mosaics, and serene courtyards, reflecting centuries of artistic and religious evolution. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984, Cordoba Mosque stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Al-Andalus and its profound impact on Spain's cultural identity.

Why visit Cordoba Mosque?

Did you know?
  • The Cordoba Mosque was initiated in the 8th century by Emir Abd ar-Rahman I on the site of a Christian Visigothic Church, Basilica of San Vicente Mártir, as part of his vision to elevate Cordoba as a center of science, culture, and arts.
  • In 1236, Ferdinand III of Castile conquered Cordoba, leading to the reconversion of the Mosque-Cathedral into a Christian church. Rather than demolishing it, Christian rulers opted to preserve and enhance its beauty with new spaces and monuments.
  • The focal point of the Mosque-Cathedral is its shell-shaped prayer niche, built in the 10th century. Unlike traditional mihrabs facing Mecca, Cordoba's mihrab faces south, resembling the orientation of the Damascus Mosque.
  • The Mosque-Cathedral boasts 856 granite and marble pillars, sourced from Roman and Visigothic ruins, supporting its iconic brick-and-stone striped arches. The interplay of sunlight among the pillars and arches creates a mesmerizing spectacle.
  • The 16th-century Torre del Alminar, standing at 93 meters tall, houses the old minaret of the Mosque-Cathedral. Originally 48 meters high and resembling the Sevillian Giralda, the tower's height was reduced to 22 meters, retaining its historic majesty.

The whole experience was great! We bought tickets on line while sitting on a patio having arrived from Seville. We then were able to have the guided tour shortly thereafter. The guide was amazing. A young woman who studied art history in Madrid. She gave us a great tour with lots of stories and explanations. She took her time and gave us the space to enjoy this beautiful building. Highly recommend this tour!

We were lucky to find a passionate, caring guide. Choose comfortable shoes (the static standing position and the cobblestones of the historic center). A small bottle of water is not negligible. The meeting place was well explained.

We booked a tour online of the mosque/cathedral, tour of the Jewish quarter and Alcazar. The tickets were stored on the Headout app so didn't need to worry about losing them. My husband and I went on the tour yesterday. Excellent tour, the guide Christina (Hungarian) was so knowledgeable about all the history of the tour. She spoke excellent English and was easy to understand. She brought it to life and was very knowledgeable as any question that she was asked she was able to answer and explain. I’d definitely recommend this tour.

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 Córdoba.

Court of Oranges

The Court of Oranges is considered to one of the oldest gardens in Europe, dating back to the end of the 8th Century where social gatherings took place. 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 Córdoba 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.

A Mihrab is a semicircular niche that points towards the direction of prayer. At the Mezquita Córdoba, the Mihrab displays rich decor and is surrounded by a royal Maqsura, a spot specifically designated for the Emir to pray. Observe the beautiful mosaics, tall supporting columns and elaborate arches here.
