"Take a tour of the Holy..." Córdoba Favorite Tip by Kay_C

Córdoba General: 79 reviews and 122 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: Take a tour of the Holy Cathedral Church, former Mosque of Cordoba - The Mezquita. I strongly suggest getting a personal tour guide - our guide made a huge difference in explaining all of the history behind this incredible building - well worth the $ spent. I don't think I would have gained the appreciation I have for this amazing building had it not been for the knowledge of our guide.

Fondest memory: Being awe-struck by the number and variety of columns in the mosque. To think of the work that took place as early as the 8th Century is mind-boggling and then to see the transformation that took place by the Christians from a mosque to a cathedral is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
